Total commemorative banknotes issued is under 1,500 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 come 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" (or fake) and not authorised by the central bank. My argument is simple. No central bank would have issued an overprint commemorative banknote that the texts are so large that it would cover 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 sheets 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. There is always a sucker around the corner, including me of course!

All comments are most welcome but it has to be subjects related to banknotes or banknotes collection. If not, it will not be approved. Thanks

Nigeria - 50 Naira Commemorative (Polymer)

Fifty Naira, Dated 2010 PNL
50th Year of Independence from Britain [1960-2010]Reverse
This note was issued on 29.9.2010, commemorating 50th year of Independence from British rule (1960-2010). Independence day is celebrated on 1st of October. Nigeria (Federal Republic of) is made up of 37 States plus a Federal Capital Territory of Abuja. It is also the most populous nation in Africa, with an estimated population of 128 millions. This note has the same design of the current N50 note but has an overprint of the 50th logo. Like previous N50, this note is also printed on polymer. This note is signed by Sanusi Lamido Sanusi (Governor) and Muhammad Nda (Director of Currency Operations).

As previous Nigerian polymer notes were printed with both 6 and 7 digits serial numbers, it is not sure if the 6 digits serial number is printed for this commemorative note.
