The National Bank of Cambodia issued a new 15,000-riel bank note Oct. 7 to commemorate the 15th anniversary of the coronation of King Norodom Sihamoni on Oct. 29.

The face of the note has a portrait of the king in the center, with an image of a statue of a seven-headed naga at Angkor Wat at his right shoulder. In Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism mythology, a naga is a half human and half cobra semi-divine being capable of assuming either form.

Among the note’s advanced features is braille so the blind can determine the denomination.
