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

Philippines - 100 Piso 2011 Commemorative Ateneo Law School

One Hundred Piso, Dated 2011 PNL
75th Anniversary of Ateneo Law School 1936-2011
The Ateneo de Manila opened its Law School on June 6, 1936, with Manuel Lim as the first Dean. The school was closed temporary in 1941 as a result of the outbreak of the Second World War. The destruction of its buildings during the battle for the liberation of Manila delayed the resumption of classes after the war. In 1948, the Ateneo Law School was reopened and since then the school has produced several bar topnotchers, jurists, legislators, academicians and noted legal practitioners. In 2011, the school celebrated it's Diamond Anniversary and as such, this note was issued to celebrate this very special occassion.
