KM#309, 20 baht, BE2538 (1995), cu-ni, mintage 800,000 + unspecified number of proofs, commemorating the September 2 80th anniversary of the Department of Revenue.


The bespectacled gentlemen is, of course, King Rama IX. Krause does not identify the other bust, but presumably it's the Thai equivalent of the Secretary of the Treasury or the head of their Internal Revenue Service. It's listed at $3.50 Unc in the 2008 20th Century Krause. If I can locate any information on the other person pictured, I'll post it.
