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

Seychelles - 10 Rupees 40th Anniversary of Independence

A ten rupees (2-uncut sheet) commemorative note celebrating the country's 40th Anniversary of Independence from the British on 29.06.1976. The design of this note (dated 2013) is the same as the 10 rupees first issued in 1998, but with the following text added to the watermark area - 40th ANNIVERSARY OF INDEPENDENCE. It is believed that this commemorative issue was released in uncut sheet format and then privately cut into 3-Uncut, 2-Uncut and single note by dealers. The note bears the signature of governor Caroline Abel. Caroline Abel was appointed to the central bank governor role on 14.03.2012. She is also the first woman appointed to this role since the country's independence in 1976.

Ten Rupees
Dated 2013
The above sheet came from the uncut sheet of 28. This was then privately cut into single note, 2-in-1, 3-in-1 etc.
