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

New Zealand - $10 Dated 1990 150th Year of Treat of Waitangi Commemorative

Ten Dollars, Dated 1990 P176
150th Year of Treaty of Waitangi 1840-1990
Uncut pairReverse
The Treaty of Waitangi was first signed on the 6th of February in 1840 between the British Crown and various Maori Chiefs from the North Island of New Zealand. The Treaty recognised Maori ownership of their lands and other properties, and also gave the Maori the right of British subjects. However despite the signing, the English and Maori language versions of the Treaty differed significantly and therefore this is no consensus as to exactly what was originally agreed to. In short from the British point of view, it gave the British sovereignty over New Zealand and also gave the Governor the right to run the country.
