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

Poland - 19 Zloty Dated 2019 Hybrid Commemorative 100th Year of Polish Security Printing Works (PWPW)

Rzeczpospolita Polska
(Republic of Poland)

Naradowy Bank Polski
(National Bank of Poland)
Currency : Zloty (PLN)

This is a rather unusual commemorative note with a face value of 19 zloty. This note was issued on 02.10.2019, for the purpose of celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the Polish Security Printing Works (PWPW). A total of 55,000 pieces/sets were issued at an issue price of 80 zloty per set. Whilst this note is legal tender, it is not intended for circulation due to the premium on the issue price. It is unlikely anyone will cash this in at face value.

The PWPW (Polska Wytwórnia Papierów Wartościowych) was established on 25.01.1919 and was originally operated under the name of State Graphics Works (Państwowe Zakłady Graficzne) until 10.07.2016. In addition to printing banknotes, PWPW also involved in printing identification documents, postage stamps and many other types of security prints.

This note is printed on Hybrid material. 

Front: Portrait of Ignacy Jan Paderewski (b.1860-1941, Polish pianist, composer, freemason, politician, statesman and spokesman for Polish independence), Order of the White Eagle, inscription "niepodlegla" (independent) in red;
Reverse: Image of the PWPW building, with the backdrop of a panoramic view of Warsaw, the capital of Poland.

The face value of 19 zloty representing the year (1919) of which PWPW was founded.
