We've had a polymer 50 Baht banknote for years already.

I have a good few notes featuring the reigning king and earlier ones of his father but haven't seen a polymer note yet (ignoring my UK ones :) )

A good point.
I was starting to wonder if I'd dreamt it all about the polymer 50 Baht note.
There was one, but not any more though. I'm obviously living in the past:

"The Bank of Thailand started issuing these 50 Thai Baht banknotes in 1997. They were withdrawn from circulation in 2011."
