The people who are related to Stock, shares and talk the market along with studying it understand the value of currency more than anyone else. Now, getting back to Thailand Currency, the country which is a Kingdom has much of the money transactions done in the form of Baht, which is the local currency and at times also the U.S. Dollar rarely work in terms of equivalent amount or above.

The Thailand Currency has 1,2,5 and 10 Baht Coins, with 20, 50, 100 and 1,000 baht Notes which makes it the most common coin in Thailand is of the 10 Baht. The Baht is further broken down into Satang, and it is equal to 100 Satang. The Satang coins exist only in 25 and 50 denominations, with rarely used in anymore transactions because of their lower value.
