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

...Transnistria - 1 Ruble Commemorative 30th Year of Independence 1990-2020

Република Молдовеняскэ Нистрянэ
Приднестровская Молдавская Республика
(Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic)

Transnistrian Republican Bank
Currency : Ruble (RUP)

This is a one ruble banknote dated 2007 but printed with a commemorative logo on the watermark area, celebrating Transnistria's 30th year of independence of Moldova. Moldova does not recognise Transnistria as an independent nation nor are they recognised by the United Nations. This note was released on 31.08.2020.

In 2015, Transnistrian Republic Bank released a set of four banknotes celebrating the 25th Anniversary of Independence. The notes issued were 1, 5, 10 and 25 rubles. These notes were all printed with the year date of 2007.

Transnistria is a narrow strip of land located on the eastern side of Moldova, sharing a common border with Ukraine. Transnistria declared independence from Moldova on 02.09.1990 following the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1990. It then fought a brief war with Moldova in 1992. Fighting between Moldova and Transnistria actually started as early as in November 1990. Ceased fire was then signed on 21.07.1992 between the two disputing parties thus avoiding any further escalation of the conflict. Since then, many talks were held to resolve this issue including concessions to the Transnistria side but without any success. The status between Transnistria and Moldova have not changed since the signing of the cease fire in 1992. Transnistria managed to remain independent of Moldova largely due to Russian's support and needless to say the Transnistrians are very pro Russia too. Judging by the design of the note will tell you this is the case as on the front it depicts a Russian General Alexander Vasilyevich Suvorav (b.1730-1800). On the back, it illustrates the Kitskansk Bridgehead memorial or Chiţcani monument in Chitcani in Transnistria.

As mentioned above, this note is printed with the following logo/message in red: -

приднестровская молдавская Республика
(Transnistrian Moldavian Republic)

It is reported that only 2500 sets were issued and all notes come with a simple card folder.
Dimensions - 129.5mm x 56mm

This is the 23rd commemorative note issued since 2009. Most of the commemorative issues are of single note but with few exceptions. However only the 2019 25th Year of National Currency note was issued with a completely new design whilst the rest were printed with commemorative logos on existing issues.
