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

..Fiji - $7 2022 Tokyo Olympic Games 2020 (2021) Commemorative Bank Note Specimen

  Republic of Fiji

Reserve Bank of Fiji
(Established 1983)
Currency - Dollar (FJD)
Further to one of my previous postings, here I have posted the Fiji $7 Tokyo 2020/2021 Olympic Games commemorative specimen note. It is not sure how many pieces were printed, but if I have to guess, I would say between 500 and 1000 pieces as two million pieces were minted.
As you can see from the note, it is printed with the solid serial number of GFG888888. I have been told that this is the only prefix printed for the specimen notes issued.   

For more details about this issue, please refer to my original post dated 09.04.2022.
