Underneath the portrait of the King is the Thai text ngeun phaendin nan kheua ngeun khong prachachon thang chaht (เงินแผ่นดินนั้น คือ เงินของประชาชนทั้งชาติ), which freely translates as  ‘The Nation's Money is the Money of All the People’. The second zero bears a picture of the former building of the Office of the Auditor General in the Grand Palace in Bangkok (fig.). In the the bottom curl of the Thai number 1 (), is again the number 100, but in Arabic script. The individual digits are somewhat overlapping and inside the last zero is the logo of the Office of the Auditor General, i.e. a double phaan topped with the Thai Constitution (fig.) and a scale (fig.). Underneath the logo, on the base of the zero, are the dates 2458-2558, referring to the centennial anniversary. The background is a picture of a blue sky with some white clouds.
