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.

Poland - 20 Zolty 2015 Commemorative Jan Dlugosz 600th Birth Anniversary

Twenty Zloty
Dated 2015
Reverse
Cover Front
Cover Back
This 20 Zloty Commemorative note was issued on 24.08.2015 to celebrate the 600th birth of Jan Dlugosz (b.1.12.1415-19.05.1480). During his life time, Jan Dlugosz was a historian, medieval writer, geographer and diplomat. Quantity issued 30,000 sets at a price of 72 Zloty each. This note comes with a simple card folder. Unlike previous issue, this note is printed on paper not polymer. The issue price has also gone up too, as compared to previous 20 Zolty 2014 Commemorative note celebrating the Centenary of the formation of the Polish Legions. This note was sold for 60 Zloty each. I am not sure why this banknote was printed on paper material. Anyway, given that this is a commemorative issue at a premium of 40 Zloty, one would not expect to see this note to going into general circulation and for that, I would preferred a paper banknote than a polymer.
