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

Cambodia - 10000 Reils King's Birthday 2015

Ten Thousand Riels
Dated 2015
Another Commemorative note issued to celebrate the country current King's 62nd Birthday. King Norodom Sihamoni was born on 14.5.1953 and this note was released on 15.5.2015. Unless this is Cambodian culture, it is unusual to commemorate a King's 62nd birthday. Like the countries of Thailand and The Philippines in South-east Asia, Cambodia seem to be introducing new notes with commemorative features. King Sihamoni is the eldest son of the late King Norodom Sihanouk. He was ascended to the Cambodian throne on 14.10.2004. Perhaps they should also have issued a note last year to celebrate his 10th anniversary to the throne. A missed opportunity is our lost.
