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

Twenty Pesos
signatures - Alejandro Diaz de Leon carillo and Alejandro Alegre Rabiela

The note depicts the scene of the arrival of the army of Three Guarantees at Mexico City on 27.09.1821. The Three Guarantees was formed on 24.02.1821 for the purpose of getting independence from the Spanish rule. The leader for the independence movement was Agustin de Itubide (b.1783-1824), who then briefly became the Emperor of Mexico from 1822 to 1823. It didn't end up good for him either. He became unpopular and was forced into exile. He then returned to Mexico, arrested and put on trial. He was found guilty by the local legislature and executed on 19.07.1824 by a firing squad. He died at the age of 40 years old.
In between the arrival scenes are printed with two flags. The one on the left is the flag of the Three Guarantees (1821-1824), and on the right is the current flag of Mexico. The two year dates of 1821 and 2021 are also printed vertically on the right. This note is dated 6 ENE 2021 (06.01.2021).
