    Thai money, time for some change?

    I reckon it's time for some change.

    Get rid of those poxy satangs for a start.

    20 baht notes should be replaced with a 20 baht coin.

    Introduce a larger note, either a 2000 baht or a 5000 baht.

    Vote Kurgen, he's right!

    Surely the one has got to go before the two?

    Think larger denomination plasticized notes are in the works?

    No larger denomination coins please, I don't have a man purse..try walking around with C$20 bucks odd of Loonies and Toonies....don't want to fall in a klong..sink like a frickin stone.
    Getting rid of satangs is probably a good idea but GST goods would be marked up/ down ..think they do it already in large stores?

    Problem with large denomination notes in mom and pop stores/markets....transaction takes so long while they run find change?

    Most Thais aren't rich enough to carry 2000 or 3000 Baht notes

    Definitely get rid of those nasty 2bt slugs. Whoever thought that up and the one who stamped it through must been on a real earner to so publicly defeat common sense.

    20 baht coins? No way!! A lot of the time I've got a big wad of 20 baht notes in my breast pocket so I sure as hell don't want a load of heavy coins tugging down my 'muda shorts.
