|The 25-Satang coin|
The 25-Satang piece is a tiny brass coin. Both the 25- and 50-Satang coins are rather useless and if received they are almost impossible to get rid of. Tourists will rarely encounter either of the Satang coins in local shops as they are mostly used in supermarkets and convenience stores. Shops and restaurants work in full-Baht prices only.

|The 2-Baht coin|
The new bronze-colored 2-Baht coin is becoming more common since its introduction in 2005.
The overall look of the "new" 2-Baht coin is the same, with H.M. the King on the obverse, and Wat Saket on the reverse. Subtle changes show His Majesty's likeness as larger, and there are also subtle changes on the reverse.
