Total commemorative banknotes issued is under 900 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.

Bangladesh - 10 Taka 1996 Victory Day Commemorative

Ten Taka
Dated 1996
Reverse
This is a Commemorative note issued with overprint text on a 10 Taka value note (P32). This note was issued in 1996 celebrating the country's Victory Day Silver Jubilee. The celebration was referred to the country civil war fought between Bangladesh (then known as East Pakistan) and West Pakistan (now known as just Pakistan). Following the gaining of independence from the British on 14.08.1947, Pakistan was split into West and East Pakistan with India in between. Whilst Bangladesh fought a brief civil war with West Pakistan, Bangladesh achieved victory with the help of their neighbour, India, in 1971. The design for this commemorative was the same as previous issue (P26), except that the commemorative Bengali text (Victory Day Silver Jubilee '96) was added to the watermark area of the note.
