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

Care: This is a fake commemorative note, aka home made. Some mothers do 'ave 'em!

The Defender Day (February 23rd) was first celebrated in 1919 to mark the date in 1918 when the first mass draft into the Red Army during the Russian Civil War (1917-1922). In 1919 it was decided to combine the anniversary of the publication of the decree on the establishment of the Red Army (18.02.1918). However 18.02.1918 was a Monday and it was decided to move the celebration to the following Saturday (23.02.1919). Since then this celebration has stayed as this date.

It should be noted that this day is celebrated as a public holiday in both Transnistria and Russia but not in Moldova.
