Can somebody show both the small and the large BRAILLE dots? If yes, please show the images?

Thanks;

Not sure if they are both 2004 but it might help give you an indication of what to look for?

Thank you very much, can I use your images to make a documentation?

Thanks in advance

Am I misunderstanding something because I see nearly no difference in dot size also neither of those two coins is from 2004 ... the left is from 2002 and the right from 2006.

​I don't think you've misunderstood anything. I'll look at it again, sorry for this! I never checked the dates, and auscoins says "I'm not sure of the dates" and I overread that!

I thought you used old and new dies for the lack of two 2004 coins but that can be bad practice because we never can be sure how many master dice are in use and most of the time they differ in minute details.
Actually I always only document variants from the same year, but here, that was not the case at all. I'll see what I have have at hand from 2004.

​Just talked to a friend who collects coins also. He brought me the two coins. The braille dot sizes are barely distinguishable but what is distinguishable are differences in the date itself. First the "large" braille dots have thicker lines in the date and most telling is the 7 in 2547 (๗). In the "large" dot version the two bottom ends almost touch (0.5mm apart), in the "small" dot version the two bottom ends are noticeably further apart (0.9mm). Wish I had the equipment to photograph the differences. If you have multiple copies of the coin look at the date to help tell them apart. The "small" dot version seems to be the far more common version. Hope this has been a help.
Another interesting difference is on the obverse. On the right side of the coin if you look at ดช รัชกาลที่ ๙ you will see a difference in the second character (ช). In the large dot version the two top ends are virtually touching each other. In the small dot version there is visible space between the top ends.
Hi Blue-m,

thank you very much for the explanations, but images would be nice to have. Do you have a portable phone able to take photos, maybe that would do?

Take care

​When you have friends providing the explanations AND hi-res images, then you just need powerpoint and MSO picture manager:° Then you try to do this documentation until you get the same result and you're set to do your own. You have the images, so just try;) Nothing to it, really0:)
