Thailand Post Releases 9,999,999 Postcards Commemorating Rama IX

BANGKOK – Thailand Post has released 9,999,999 postcards in memory of the deceased King Bhumibol Adulyadej of Chakri dynasty, who reigned as Rama IX and died on Oct. 13 at the age of 88.

The postal department, on its website, described it a gesture of gratitude towards the deceased monarch, who ruled the country for 70 years and was revered by the Thai people.

The postcards come wrapped in golden paper with a picture of Rama IX on the left and his stamp on the right, along with a poem selected by the postal department.

These souvenirs can be ordered through the postal department’s site.

The death of King Bhumibol concluded a historic chapter of transformation in Thailand, which is observing a period of official mourning of 12 months to honor his memory.

Vajiralongkorn, his only son, proclaimed as Rama X by the country’s Parliament on Dec. 1, will be crowned after the period of mourning.
