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

One Hundred Talarjev
Dated 2001, P25
One Thousand Talarjev
Dated 2001, P26
Ten Thousand Talarjev
Dated 2001, P27
Here is a set of 3 Commemorative notes (P25, P26 & P27) issued in 2001 to celebrate the country's 10th Anniversary of it's Central Bank, Bank of Slovenia (Banka Slovenije). Slovenia was formerly one of the 6 States that made up the nation of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. Slovenia gained independence on 25.06.1991. The declaration of independence also let to a 10-Day War (aka Weekend War) fought between Slovenia and the Yugoslavia People's Army. This war also led to the beginning of the breaking up of Yugoslavia between other member States. Following independence, Slovenia established it's own Central Bank and commenced issuing it's own currency, called Tolar. On 01.05.2004, Slovenia joined the EU and in 2007 adopted the Eurosystem and replaced it's own currency with the Euro. The designs for these 3 notes posted here are the same as those issued earlier but with the following Commemorative text added to the watermark area of the notes - Banka Slovenije 1991-2001. This is a limited issue with the following quantities printed; 100 Tolarjev (dated 15.01.1992 - 10,000 pieces); 1000 Tolarjev (dated 15.01.2000 - 5,000 pieces) and 10,000 Tolarjev (15.01.2000 - 1,000 pieces). The signatures on all the notes are not the same. All notes posted here  have matching last 3 digit serial numbers. This set also issued in a simple green folder presentation for collectors and is restricted to 1,000 sets only. In another word, to get the 10,000 Tolarjev note, one will have to get them in a set like this one posted here.
