"Ananda Mahidol (Thai: อานันทมหิดล; rtgs: Ananthamahidon; 20 September 1925 – 9 June 1946) was the eighth monarch of Thailand from the House of Chakri as Rama VIII. At the time he was recognised as king by the National Assembly in March 1935, he was a nine-year-old boy living in Switzerland. He returned to Thailand in December 1945, but six months later in June 1946, he was found shot dead in his bed. Although at first thought to have been an accident, medical examiners ruled it a murder and three royal pages were later executed following very irregular trials. The mysterious circumstances surrounding his death have been the subject of much controversy."

Pretty much almost uncirculated and definitely in great condition with some coin lustre, this is still very beautiful and rare coin! Few remains, and Especially rare for a circulating coin of such a state when it is made of soft Tin material.

The mintage is quite low comparatively, only recorded 230'000 pieces. Given it is made of soft tin, and over the years of more than > 74+ years, many will have been lost, destroyed or in poor conditional state (flatten or marks off).

This is a fantastic specimen of an aged old coin of rare state!

Feels & looks better in your hand! This unique piece can be yours today! Authenticity guaranteed for life! Fairly Priced!
