To celebrate its 100th anniversary, King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital has launched a special collection of commemorative medals depicting HM the King, who is the patron of the Thai Red Cross Society, which operates the hospital. 

HM’s portrait is on the front of the medal. The other side sees HM’s initials — Pho Po Ro — under the royal cypher and the Great Crown of Victory, or Phra Maha Phichai Mongkut.

It’s surrounded by a commemorative message in Thai reading “100 Years of Chulalongkorn Hospital, The Red Cross Society, March
30, 2014”.
