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

Scotland - 10 Pounds 2012 Diamond Jubilee Commemorative

Celebrating Queen Elizabeth The Second Diamond Jubilee 1952-2012
Ten Pounds
Dated 6.2.2012 (Issued 23.5.2012)
This is a commemorative note issued on the 23 May 2012 (note dated 6.2.2012) to celebrate Queen Elizabeth The Second Diamond Jubilee to the thrown (1952-2012). This is the first time the bank issued a commemorative for this denomination. Previous commemorative issued were: -

- 1 pound (1992 - Edinburgh European Summit, 1994 - Robert Louis Stevenson, 1997 - Aexander Graham Bell and 1999 - Scottish Parliament);
- 5 pounds (2002 - Queen's Golden Jubilee),
- 20 pounds (2000 - Queen's Mother 100th birthday celebration); and
- 50 pounds (2005 - RBS New Head Quarter at Gogarburn Edinburgh).

It would be interesting to see if the bank will issue one for the 100 pounds commemorative note in the near future.
