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.

Serbia - 2003 120th Year of Banknotes issued by the National Bank of Serbia Commemorative

This is a commemorative note issued in 2003 (P41a) to celebrate the 120th Year of Banknotes Issued by the National Bank in Serbia since 1884. The note depicts the image of Serbian famous son, inventor Nikola Tesla. Tesla was an Austrian Serb but was born in Smiljan (Croatia) in 1856 and died in New York USA in 1943 as a naturalised American citizen. He is famously known for his study and invention of the electromagnetic induction engine (if only I know what I am talking about here) and went on to design an induction motor. An induction motor is whereby no electrical connections are required to operate the rotor. As this is a commemorative note, it also printed with commemorative texts on the back of the note. Subsequent issue (2004 P41b) does not have these texts.
