Total commemorative banknotes issued is under 900 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 came 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 and not authourised by the central bank. My argument is simple. No central banks would have issued an overprint commemorative banknote that the texts are so large that it would covered 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 sheet 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.

Croatia - 10 Kuna Central Bank Commemorative 2004

Ten Kuna, Dated 30.5.2004 P45
10th Anniversary of the Croatian National BankReverse
The Croatian National Bank is the central bank of the Republic of Croatia. This 10 Kuna note was issued in 2004 to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the bank. Like all central banks around the world, the main objective of the bank is to maintain price stability in Croatia. The central bank was established by the Constitution of Croatia which was passed by the Croatian Parliament on 21.12.1990 but i am not sure why this note was issued in 2004. This note is signed by the Governor Zeljko Rohatinski. This note has the similar design to the previous 10 Kuna (P38 - dated 2001) issued, however an additional print of a large 10 over the word "OBLJETNICA" (Anniversary) is added to the watermark area on the right of the note (obverse). This note is dated 30.05.2004.
