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

...Algeria - 1000 Dinar 2005 Arab League Commemorative

One Thousand Dinar, Dated 22.3.2005 P143
60th Anniversary of the Arab League
The Arab League or The League of Arab States was first established in Cairo Egypt on 22.3.1945 by the six founding members, namely Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia and Syria. Since then, it's members have grew to 22 nations stretching from Mauritania to Iraq and from Syria to Comoros. The Arab League headquarter is situated in Tahrir Square in Cairo. The aim of the organisation is to have a better understanding and collaboration between member States. Due to the recent Arab Spring Uprising, Syria has been temporarily suspended since November 2011, and the League has also approved the NATO force involvement in the recent civil war in Libya which led to the fall of Muammar Gaddafi regime. This note was issued in 2005 celebrating the 60th Anniversary of the founding of the Arab League organisation.
