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

...Transnistria - 2015 World War ll Victory Commemorative

One Ruble
Dated 2015
Ten Rubles
Dated 2015

Transnistria - Here are the two commemorative notes of 1 and 10 Rubles, released on 28.04.2015 to celebrate the 70th Anniversary (Victory) of the end of the second world war 1939-1945. The design for these two notes are the same as previous issues but with commemorative logos printed on the watermark area on the right hand side of the notes. These two notes were issued with matching serial numbers. A total of 7,070 sets were released into circulation with 2,000 sets sold in commemorative folders. Transnistria has been a disputed region in Moldova since the early 90s. Trans-Dniester Republican Bank is solely responsible for issuing currency in this disputed region. The Transnistrian Rubles are basically worthless outside it's own territory.
