picture comparison 2 euro 10 baht coins
Did You know that popular 2 euro coin (in this pic You can see the Belgium 2003 edition) looks almost the same, including size, as the 10 baht thai coin? The inner part is golden-like and has profile of King Bhumibol Adulyadej on one side and the popular Bangkok Arun temple (Wat Arun) on the other.

The “problem” is that 10 baht are valued about 20 eurocent, so a lot less than 2 euro! If you don’t check them carefully you can easily swap them by mistake; this is a known example of coins “scam”.
