Total commemorative banknotes issued is under 900 pieces. If you have achieved any figures close to this, then you are doing extremely well, as many of the older commemorative notes are hard to find even in poor conditions.

Opinion: Many collectors of commemorative banknotes would have came across with those Somaliland sets overprinted with gold and silver texts with the following wordings - 5th Anniversary of Independence 18 May 1996 [Sanad Gurade 5ee Gobanimadda 18 May 1996]. I believe these are home made and not authourised by the central bank. My argument is simple. No central banks would have issued an overprint commemorative banknote that the texts are so large that it would covered the two signatures on the note as well as part of the serial numbers. Even if these are genuine notes, then these could be issued as souvenir sheet and not as legal tender. As I said before, this is my opinion. If you have paid top dollars for these, please think about my argument.

These notes were issued to celebrate the country's constitution bicentenniary. There are three versions of this issue. One was printed with overprint texts to celebrate this special occasion. This note was issued in a folder format. One printed with sliver strip on the right instead of gold in colour and the third one printed with one one set of 9-digit serial number on one side. The main design on the back of the note is the country's constitution, and if you can enlarge the note with your scanner, you can actually read the tests printed too, in French of course.
