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

...Cambodia - 30000 Riels 2021 Commemorative Specimen Hybrid - 30th Year of The Paris Peace Agreement

(Kingdom of Cambodia)

(National Bank of Cambodia)
Currency : Riel (KHR)
On 08.02.2022, I posted the commemorative note of 30,000 riels issued on 18.10.2021, celebrating the 30th Year of the Signing of the Paris Peace Agreement that ended the civil war in Cambodia. 

Here, I have posted the same note but printed (perforated) with the word Specimen vertically on the left-hand side of the note. It is always nice to get a specimen note to add to my collection, especially a commemorative specimen. This note is also printed on a Hybrid material too. You can read my previous post by clicking here.
I believe the prefix printed for this note is ១ or A1 and followed by the 2 digits of 30 (presumably stands for the 30th year) and then 6 zeros.
