THB (Thai Baht)

THB (Thai Baht)
The currency abbreviation for the Thai baht (THB), the currency for Thailand. The Thai baht is made up of 100 satang and is often presented as β. 25 satang is often referred to as a "salung" based on the predecimalization days, when one-quarter of a baht was known as a salung.

The Thai baht has always been the currency of Thailand, but prior to the 19th century, it was known as the tical.

Prior to 1897, the baht was subdivided into many different denominations, such as the bia (1/6400 baht), and the feuang (1/8 baht). In 1897, the present decimalization system was introduced and the old denominations were replaced by 1910.
