Total commemorative banknotes issued is under 900 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 came 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 and not authourised by the central bank. My argument is simple. No central banks would have issued an overprint commemorative banknote that the texts are so large that it would covered 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 sheet 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!

Poland - 20 Zloty 100th Year of Indepedence 1918-2018

Rzeczpospolita Polska
Republic of Poland

This new 20 Zloty commemorative note was issued on 31.08.2018, celebrating the nation's 100th Year of Independence. Whilst the face value of this note is only 20 Zloty, the official issued price was 75 Zloty with a total quantity of 50,000 issued in a simple folder/cover format.

The design of this note shows the portrait of Marshal Josef Klemens Pilsudski (1867-1935), who was the national hero for the Polish Independence campaign and the nation premiere statesmen from 1918 to until his death on 12.05.1935. The year date of 1918-2018 is printed to the left of Marshal Pilsudski. The polish word "niepodlegla" (my spelling could be wrong) means independent is also printed in red vertically on the front. The main features on the back are the Polish Legions eagle and a large Polish flag. All notes are printed with the letter prefix of RP (Rzeczpospolita Polska or The Republic of Poland).
