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

...Transdniestria - 1 Ruble Commemorative 75th Year of Yasi-Chisinau Operation 1944-2019

This is another 1 ruble note with commemorative overprint, commemorating the 75th year of the Yasi-Chisinau (Jassey-Kishinev) operation. This operation was related to a Soviet offensive against the Axis forces, which took place in Eastern Romania from 20 to 29 August 1944 World War ll. This offensive resulted in the encirclement and destruction of the German forces which later forced Romania to switch allegiance from the Axis powers to the Allies.

This note was issued on 20.08.2019 with 1,500 sets released.

Transnistria has issued a fair bit of overprint commemorative notes since 2019. Most of these issues were mainly overprint on the 1 ruble, but other denominations like the 5, 10 and 25 rubles were also issued. Recently I bought two of such overprints and realised that these were not official issues. The notes are genuine notes but not the commemorative overprints. Obviously I was disappointed that why would anyone do such a thing just for a profit? These two notes that I bought were quite expensive too. I did post these two notes on my sites and later taken them down when I found out that they are not official issues. As a rule of thumb, these Transnistria issues, especially for those folder one, should have a very low serial number, unless the issue is also meant for general circulation too.
