Commemorative banknotes are popular around the world, but aren't something the U.S. produces. I noticed this article a commemorative
note from Thailand that's being exhibited at the coin show in that country. -Editor
The Bank of Thailand is offering commemorative 500,000-baht banknotes for 1 million baht each at the Money Expo underway at Impact Muang
Central bank spokesman Jirathep Seneewongse na Ayudhya said the bills were issued to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the wedding of
Their Majesties the the King and Queen on April 28, 2000.
There were 1,998 banknotes printed and they were first distributed to the public on May 5, 2000.
The BOT was asked by the fair organiser to exhibit the special banknote at the BoT's booth, said Mr Jirathep.
