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. There is always a sucker around the corner!

Phiippines - 100 Piso 2011 100th of Lasallian presence in the Philippines

One Hundred Piso
Dated 2011, PNL

The Philippines 100 Piso 2011 Commemorative. This is an overprinted commemorative, celebrating 100th Years of Lasallian presence in the Philippines. It seems that there is no end to issuing commemorative notes from the central bank. This is, of course, good for the collectors, after all, the central bank is making our collection more interesting. Free interest loan to them too and many happy collectors. This is a win-win situation. Just keep churning them, Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas, salamat!
