It was the first banknote series that had the portrait of H.M. the King of Thailand as main element, and the Suphannahongse Royal Barge, Temple of the Emerald Buddha, a scene of the Mae Ping River and a scene of a river community as minor elements in each denomination, printed on the front side. On the back side, there was a picture of Phra Samut Chedi Temple with a statement of the penalty for imitation which was used for the first time. There were 4 denominations in this series: 1, 5, 10 and 20 Baht. Each denomination had two types which were printed by Thomas De La Rue & Company Limited, England. They were first used in 1934 during the reign of King Rama VII and lasted until the reign of King Rama VIII.
