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

...Morocco - 25 Dirham Hybrid 2012

25th Year of Banknote Printing at the Moroccan State Printing Works
Twenty Five Dirham
ND2012, PNL
Morocco 25 Dirhams 2012 Commemorative note. This is a Hybrid note printed by the company called Fortress Paper Ltd using the Durasafe substrate material, an innovative paper-polymer-paper composite produced at it's Landqart mill in Switzerland. Needless to say, the central bank of Morocco (Bank al Maghrib) is their first customer using the Durasafe substrate technology. With a new competitor entering the Polymer/Hybrid market, I am just wondering if we will see more of these notes in the very near future. This note commemorates the 25th year of banknote printing at the Moroccan State Printing Works, Dar As-Sikkah. Strange to have a commemorative note celebrating the country's printing works and this note was printed in Switzerland. The note I have posted here has an Arabic character and "00" prefix and followed by 6 digits. As I do not read Arabic characters, I can't be sure but is this note that I have loaded a first prefix note? If you have any information, please let me know. Thanks.
