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

...Transnistria - 2009 15 Years of National Currency Commemorative

Ten Rubles, ND18.8.2009 PNL
Commemorating 15 Years of National CurrencyReverse

Transnistria (also known as Trans-Dniestr or Transdniestria) is a breakaway territory from Moldova, and is located between the borders of Ukraine and Moldova. Transnistria was formerly part of the USSR and declared its independence following the dissolution of the USSR empire in 1990. However since then, Transnistria sovereignty is not recognised by members of the United Nations, and needless to say it's currency too. This 10 Rubles was issued in 2009 to commemorate the 15th year of National Currency. It was reported that only 1000 of these notes were issued with a folder. How true is this, I have no idea. With or with the folder is not a concern. It is the note that I was interested in.
