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.

Colombia - 5000 Peoso Oro 1986 Centennial of Constitution Commemorative

This commemorative note was issued in 1986 to celebrate the country's 100th Year of its Constitution 1886-1986. The front of the note depicts the country formal President Rafael Nunez (1879-1882 and 1884-1894). President Rafael Nunez was born in 1825 and died in office in 1894. The Constitution of Colombia 1886 created the Republic of Colombia from the United States of Colombia. The 1886's Constitution basically changed how the country is governed, how the President is elected and for how long and the power of the Presidential in appointing officials to public offices. This Constitution has since been replaced by the Constitution of 1991. On the back, it depicts Miguel Antonio Caro, who was the Vice President of Colombia (b. 1845-1909). This note is printed by Bundesdruckerei Alemania Federal in Berlin Germany. Subsequent notes printed (P435, P436 and P436A) by various printers are not considered as Commemorative issues.
