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

Turkmenistan - 2017 Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games Commemorative

A complete set of 6 banknotes issued to celebrate the 5th Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games (AIMAG). The games was held in Ashgabat, the capital city of Turkmenistan between 17.09.2017 to 27.09.2017. Sixty-two countries from both Asia and Oceania have participated in the games. The AIMAG is the merger between the Asian Indoor Games and Asian Martial Arts Games. Bangkok (Thailand) staged the first Asian Indoor games in 2005 and in 2009 also held the first Asian Martial Arts Games. In 2013, these two major events merged and formed the AIMAG and was held in Incheon South Korea. In reality, this is the 2nd AIMAG games since it was merged between the two major events. The AIMAG comprises of 339 events in 21 sports.

The designs for these commemorative notes are the same as previous issues except with the games logo added to the front on the right hand side of the notes.
