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

...Transnistria - 1 Ruble 2007(2023) 100th Anniversary of Gold Chervonets

  Република Молдовеняскэ Нистрянэ
Приднестровская Молдавская Республика
(Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic)

Transnistrian Republican Bank
Currency : Ruble (RUP)
This is a 1 ruble commemorative overprint banknote issued on 07.09.2023 for the celebration of the 100th Year of Gold Chervonets. The word Chervonets is a Russian name for large foreign and local gold coins. As the word Chervonets is a Russian word, it means 'Red' or 'Rose Gold'. 
The minting of the Russian Gold Chervonets was first started in 1923 and 1925. These Gold Chervonets were not sold overseas and most of them were held and retained by the government. Very few of these survive since then as most of them were recast into bars or used for other purposes. The Gold Chervonets when first minted have the face value of 10 Russian roubles. The gold coin has a weight of 8.60 grams and a pure gold content of 7.74 grams. Because of its scarcity, one of these gold coins can fetch around US$7,000+ in today's market.
The design of this note is similar to the 1 ruble dated 2007 (released 2012) and with the commemorative logo added to the design on the front. As this is a commemorative limited edition banknote, only 2,500 pieces of these commemorative notes have been printed with 2,490 pieces packed and sold in a simple booklet as numismatic products.
