2005 Thailand 10 Baht

Pretty sure this is a 2005 coin the numbers translate as 2548 which should be 2005 in our calendar. The Thai numeral system is like ours but the characters are very similar and the coin fonts make the tiny differences even more difficult for a novice to detect.



This ๒ is a 2, this ๕ is a 5, this ๔ is a 4, and this ๘ is an 8. If you can see the fonts and compare then it does look like I got them right. Add to that there are some commemorative coins issued for 2005 but luckily the designs are very different. This one pictured above is the normal circulated variety.


Since I have not found anything foreign coin recently I went into the vaults to show this one.

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 10 Baht / Thailand
Edge: Segmented Reeding
Year: 2005 (2548)
Mintage: 108,271,000
Metal: Bimetallic: Outer Ring: Cupro-Nickel, Center: Brass
Value: $1.50 in Extra-Fine, $0.32 in exchange value
