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

...Paraguay - 1000 Quaranis 2002 Central Bank 50th Year Commemorative

One Thousand Quaranies
Dated 2002
This is a commemorative note, issued to celebrate the country's Central Bank's 50th Anniversary - Banco Central del Paraguay. The bank was created by law on 25.03.1952. This note was issued in 2002 to celebrate it's golden Jubilee. The design of this note is the same as previously issued, except that commemorative texts were added to the note just under the currency value of 1000 - "Cincuentenario del Banco Central del Paraguay" (50th Anniversary of the Central Bank of Paraguay). This note was released to the public as a normal circulating type.
