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

Philippines - 100 Piso Manila Hotel Commemorative

Commemorating 100th Year of Manila Hotel
One Hundred Piso
Dated 2012, PNL
Philippines 100 Piso 2012 Manila Hotel Commemorative. To those who are not living in the Philippines, they must be wondering why a banknote was issued to celebrate this hotel. Well, the Manila Hotel is the most well known and prestigious hotel in the country. The hotel was first opened on 4.7.2012 and obviously this note was overprinted to celebrate the 100th year of it's inception. Since then, the hotel has been the temporary home of many well known personalities, royal families, the rich and the famous, politicians both local and foreign (the good, the bad and the ugly) including General MacArthur and his family, the Japanese army during WWII, Bob Hope, Marlon Brando, Tyrone Power, John Foster Dulles, Robert Kennedy, Sir Anthony Eden, Charlton Heston, Burgees Meredith, the Rockefeller brothers, John Wayne, Publisher Henry Luce, Richard Nixon, Dwight Eisenhower, Lyndon B Johnson, the Beatles, King Juan Carlos de Bourbon and Queen Sofia of Spain, Prince Albert of Monaco, Prince of Cambodia Norodom Ranariddh, Benazir Bhutto, Indonesia Megawati Sukarnoputr, Romania Ion Iliescu, South Korea Roh Moo-Hyun and Bill Clinton. Of course there are many others too, but just too many to mention here, after all, this blog site is all about money only! Well, everyone has been there except me. I wonder if you have to pay just to get into the lobby?
