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

This is a commemorative note of 10000 tenge released on 15.11.2023, to mark 30th Anniversary of introduction of the national currency - Tenge 1993-2023.
Kazakhstan was formerly a constituent republic of the Soviet Union. The Soviet Union was officially dissolved on 25.12.1991, which let to 14 post-Soviet states* previously controlled by the Russian, becoming republic. Kazakhstan was one of the 14 post-Soviet states. Whilst Kazakhstan declared full independence on 16.12.1991, it was not recognised until on 26.12.1991 when the Soviet Union finally collapsed. Attempts were made to have a common currency following the collapse of the Soviet Union, but this was unsuccessful. The Russian rubles then continued to legally circulate in all the fourteen newly formed nations. On 12.11.1993, the government of Kazakhstan announced that a new currency of the Republic of Kazakhstan will be issued and on 15.11.1993, the 'Tenge' officially became the currency of Kazakhstan. At the time of the introduction, the rate of exchange was one Tenge equals to 500 Russian Rubles.
