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.

Mexico - 100 Pesos 2017 100th Anniversary of the Enachment of the Constitution of the United Mexican States 05.02.1917

On 05.02.2017, Banco de Mexico (Bank of Bank) released a commemorative 100 Pesos paper banknote celebrating the country's 100th Anniversary of the Enactment of the Constitution of the United Mexican States 1917-2017.

The design of the note features the followings:

Obverse: Luis Manuel Rojas Arreola (1871-1949) Chairman of Congress (L) and Venustiano Carranza (1859-1920) Head of State 1915-1917 and Mexico President 1917-1920 (R) - swearing in before the Constituent Assembly after amending the Constitution;

Reverse: Congressmen appear swearing to observe and enforce the Mexican Constitution.
 
The note's colour is predominant in red and yellow, printed with the date of 25 Ene 2016 (25.01.2016) and was released on the 100th Anniversary of the enactment of the constitution, 05.02.2017.

Collecting Mexican banknotes sometime can be tough and challenging as notes are usually signed by difference members of the Board of Government (Junta de Gobierno) even it was a single note issue. For this issue, I believe it comes in two series, AX and AY and each series also printed with five difference signatures varieties, all bearing the same Cashier's signature (Cajero Principal). Here I have posted 9 notes with AX series (prefixes K, L, M, N, P) and AY series (prefixes Q, R, S, T and U).

For this series you will find that both the AX and AY series are printed will matching signatures between them, ie

K & Q,
L & R,
M & S,
N & T; and
P & U.
It is believe that letter prefix O was not used.
