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 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!

Five Pounds
ND2002, PNL
Front Cover
Great Britain - 2002 Queen Golden Jubilee Commemorative Cover. This is a numismatic product issued to celebrate the Queen's Golden Jubilee 1952-2002. The cover comprises of two stamps, a £5 Crown coin and a £5 banknote signed by the Chief Cashier Merlyn Lowther. both the coin and banknotes are legal tender. The note used for this commemorative issue is the same design as those normal £5 note but with a special and unique prefix of QE50. This is the only prefix used for this commemorative issue and was not used for those in normal circulation. A total sets of 1,500 were printed. With such a large population in the UK, this is by any definition is a very small issue.
