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

In 1994, it changed the currency from Dinar to Kuna and issued it''s first Kuna on 30.05.1994. The Kuna, in Croatian meaning Marten, is subdivided into 100 Lipa (meaning lime tree). This is a folder issued which also include the 10 Kuna commemorative issued in 2004 celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Kuna currency. The design of this commemorative note is almost the same as the current 20 Kuna in circulation  except that it has the the denomination value of 20 added to the watermark area on the left hand side of the note, just like the previous 10 Kuna 2004 commemorative issue.
