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.

Kazakhstan - 20000 Tenge 2013 20th Anniversary of Currency Commemorative

Twenty Thousand Tenge
Dated 2013
Reverse
This is a new 20,000 Tenge denomination note dated 2013 and was reportedly released on 2.12.2015. This note was printed to celebrate the country 20th Anniversary of the National Currency "Tenge" in 2013 but was not released until December 2015. It is not sure why this note was not released back in 2013. The word Tenge in Kazakh means a set of scale. The Tenge currency was first introduced in 1993 following the collapse of the Soviet Union in the early 90s. This is the largest denomination currently circulating in the country. Like the current 10,000 Tenge in circulation, this note is also printed with Hybrid materials. The design format on this note is very similar to current issues. On the front, it's in vertical format whilst on the back the note is viewed in a horizontal position. As expected, a 20th Anniversary commemorative logo is printed on the back of the top left corner of the note. It is also not sure if this is a one off issue or will we be seeing reprint of this denomination without the commemorative logo later.
