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

The title of this post says for itself. This note was released on 19.12.2022 to celebrate the country's Golden Jubilee of the Constitution and the Supreme Court of Bangladesh. 

Bangladesh's independence day is celebrated on 26th of March. On 26.03.1971, Sheikh Mujibur Rahman declared the Independence of Bangladesh (then known as East Pakistan), which led to West Pakistan launching an assault on East Pakistan, thus the beginning of the War of Independence. The civil war then went on for nine months, and ended on 16.12.1971. The end of the war is also celebrated as Victory day in Bangladesh.

Exactly one year after the end of the War of Independence, the Constitution of Bangladesh was established on 16.12.1972, whilst the Supreme Court of Bangladesh was established earlier on 09.01.1972. This is the highest court of laws in the country.
