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

Sweden - 100 Krona 2005 Commemorative

One Hundred Krona, Dated 2005 P66
Commemorating the 250th Anniversary of the Tumba Paper Mill
Folder Front Cover
One the reverse side of the note and midway between the two main motifs are two lines of minitext with a Swedish text, and it reads as follows: -

"Den 14 juni 1755 beslutade fullmäktige att hos Kungl. Maj:t söka tillstånd att vid Tumba anlägga ett pappersbruk för bankens räkning, där till erhållande af nya och till efterapande svårare formulärer för de nu brukliga bankotransportsedlarna skulle tillverkas ett eget, med vissa ifrån allt annat papper särskilde, och till kompositionen ej lätteligen ut­rönta kännetecken utmärkt papper, med vilkets förfärdigande skall fordras en noga förvarad hemlighet"

And according to the Swedish Central Bank website, it translates as follows: -

"On the 14th June 1755 the Riksbank Council decided to apply for permission from His Royal Majesty for the Riksbank to found a paper mill at Tumba where the manufacture of new and more difficult to counterfeit forms for the now common bank transport bills would be carried out on the bank’s own, special paper with a composition that could not easily be copied and would remain a closely guarded secret.
