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

Cambodia - 20,000 Riels King's 65th Birthday Commemorative

Kingdom of Cambodia

ធនាគារជាតិនៃកម្ពុជា National Bank of Cambodia

This 20,000 riels was released on 16.05.2018, to mark the 65th Birthday of King Norodom Sihamoni. The King was born on 14.05.1953. Whilst this is a commemorative note, there are no commemorative text added to the note. This note is dated 2017.

Whilst the front of the note has the similar design as those previously issued, the design on the back is completely new. As expected, the design features the portrait of King Norodom Sihamoni. The design on the back is the Banteay Srei (or Banteav Srey) temple located in the Angkor area. This temple was built in the 10th century dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva.

Twenty Thousand Riels
Dated 2017, P69
