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

...China - 100 Yuan 2015 China's Aerospace Science and Technology Commemorative

One Hundred Yuan
Dated 2015
This is a 2015 commemorative note issued by the People's Bank of China, celebrating the progress and achievement of China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation (CASC). This note was issued on 26.11.2015 and has a face value of RMB100. The note is measured 155mm x 77mm. A total quantity of 300,000,000 pieces were released into circulation. In addition to this it also released a gold coloured coin of RMB10 (mintage 10 million pieces). CASC is a state-owned entity and was founded in 1999 with it's HQ in Beijing. Currently it employs a total work force in excess of 170,000 staffs. China's space programme started in the late 50s. On 24.4.1970, it successfully launched it's first satellite called Dong Fang Hong 1 (aka China 1 or Red East 1) into space. On the front of the note, it features the Dong Fang Hong 1 satellite, Shenzhou Ninth Airship docking with Tiangong-1 space lab and Chang'e 1 satellite. On the top right hand corner it printed with the text of China Aerospace Memorial/Commemorative "中国航纪念". The note also has the water mark of Dong Fang Hong 1. On the back, from the top, it's the Chang'e 1 satellite (an unmanned China lunar orbiting spacecraft), Heavenly Palace Space Station (2020 China space station), undercarriage of a Chinese made commercial airplane (Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China COMAC), a Fengru no 2 wing propeller-driven aircraft and an eastern coastal flying bird. With such a large quantity available, each person was allowed up to 10 notes and 3 coins. This is the fourth commemorative banknote ever issued by China since the formation of the People's Republic of China on 1.10.1949 by the current government. The design of this note is that it is viewed horizontally on the front and vertically on the back. Unlike the current 100 Yuan, this note is printed predominantly in blue colour.

02.04.2018 - The Tiangong-1 (Heavenly Palace) Chinese space station is scheduled to crash onto earth sometime today. The space station was first placed in orbit in September 2011. The Chinese authority lost control of this space station in March 2016. In September 2016, Tiangong-2 was launched, replacing Tiangong-1.
