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 - $0.88 ND2022 Uncut Sheets 恭喜發財 Legal Tender Lucky Money Numismatic Banknote "May Prosperity Be Yours"

 Republic of Fiji
Reserve Bank of Fiji
(Established 1983)
Currency - Dollar (FJD)
In one of my previous posts, I posted the Fiji $0.88 legal tender numismatic note, both the normal and specimen notes. Here I have posted the two of the four uncut sheets of 2-in-1, and 3-in-1. In all, four types of uncut sheets were issued. The other two are the 8-in-1, and the 16-in1. I also have the 8-in-1 uncut sheet, but it is a bit too large for my scanner.
As mentioned in my previous post, there are not commemorative notes, but issued as a joint-venture for financial gains. It is unlikely you will find them circulating in Fiji when one has to pay such a high premium over the face value. Besides, what can you buy for $0.88 in Fiji? A cup of coffee costs between F$5 to F$6, depending on where you purchase it.
