@coin_nut and @KBBPLL - any explanation about "Ministry of Finance"? Is the ministry the issuing authority? Or is is some sort of commemorative of the ministry? I noticed that coin_nut's is 1975 and then KBBPLL's is twenty-years later - 1995.
With 1995 I will take us to Germany with this 10-mark dated 1995 and minted in Hamburg (J). Literally translated, "50 years administration for peace and reconciliation and the rebuilding of the Frauenkirche." It commemorates the 50th anniversary of the destruction of the Frauenkirche in Dresden.
@DEA - Numista says "120 Years of Ministry of Finance" about my 1995 and it is a commemorative. Per wiki, "The king issued a royal decree in 1875 consolidating all powers and agencies under one ministry", hence the anniversary. The Ministry of Finance is basically like the US Treasury Department, or similar, and also runs some government monopolies (not sure what all those are, but I can ask my Thai spouse).
48th Anniversary of Rama VII Constitutional Monarchy (note that multiples of 12 years is also considered important)
