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.

Thailand - 2017 A Tribute To The Late King Bhumibol Adulyadej (Rama lX)

This is set of five Commemorative notes issued on 20.09.2017 with denominations from 20 Baht to 1000 Baht. The purpose of this issue was to pay tribute to the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej's life achievement from the very early age until his death. In another word, it tells the life story of the former Thai King. King Bhumibol Adulyadej who passed away on 13.10.2016, aged 88, after more than 70 years sitting on the Thai throne (from 09.06.1946).

The designs on the front of the notes are the same as the current 16th series, whilst on the back, each note is depicting the image and story of his achievement and his life from his early age as King.
