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

Australia 1992 Embossed Commemorative First and Last folder. Two varieties were issued for this commemorative folder - Embossed and Standard Souvenir folders. There are no difference between the notes for these two folders, however the only difference is the folder cover for the Embossed set which is printed with a raised seal on the top right hand corner and it reads as - "NOTE PRINTING AUSTRALIA 1ST DAY OF ISSUE 7 JULY 1992". Quantities issued for these folders were 17,000 for the embossed set and 30,000 for the standard souvenir set. The polymer note is printed with green serial numbers. Original issue price for the embossed set was $20 and $19 for the standard souvenir set.
