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

Jamaica - $50 2010 Commemorative Central Bank 50th Anniversary

Fifty Dollars, Dated 1.10.2010 PNLReverse
This note was released on 15.11.2010 to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the Bank of Jamaica. It should be noted that the actual anniversary celebrations should begin in May 2011, however since the Bank of Jamaica Act was passed in October 1960, and as such the note is released in 2010. The BoJ did not open its door for business until May 1961. The new note is a limited addition and is signed by BoJ Governor Brian Wynter. The obverse design of this note is similar to the existing J$50 note but with the overprint of “50th anniversary and 1960-2010” logo.

On the reverse side of the commemorative note is completely difference from the existing $50 note. The BoJ building situated at Nethersole Place is the main feature of the design replacing the usual Doctors Cave Beach vignette.
