New high tech 100 baht notes will be released in Thailand from 26th February 2015. The 100 baht has the similar color pink as the older one but more high tech because of the following reasons:
- Visually impaired can easily identify the value of the notes
- Inclusion of anti forgery numerals like a translucent watermark of Thai numeral 100 is clearly visible in both sides.
- It will display hidden patterns in black light – When black light appears orange, yellow, green fiber appears
- Embedded in the note would be a purple strip which will turn green when held up to a light bulb.
The note is designed to dedicate & honor His Majesty King Taksin the great.
