Not because of it being money, but because it carries a picture of the King. RIP Bhumibol :(

Not just money, anything bearing the King's image - from portraits to photos in the newspapers - must be treated with respect. This relates to Thailand's lèse-majesté laws, which are said to be among the strictest in the world.

I can just see myself, dropping a paper bill on a windy day, stamping on it to keep it from blowing off, and getting myself immediately arrested. :P
