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!

Great Britian - 5 Pounds 2000 Millennium Commemorative

Five Pounds
ND2000, PCS10
Great Britain - Five Pounds Millennium note. Like many countries around the world (a total of 16 nations including Great Britain), this five pounds note was printed to celebrate the new millennium. The Bank of England released more than 3 notes to commemorate the new Millennium. Apart from this note, it also released the £10 and £20 notes in a presentation folder separately. This note used for this special occasion was the same as those notes issued for general circulation but with the special prefix of YR20 00. This note bears the facsimile signature of the Chief Cashier, Merlyn Lowther. A total of 1,500 pieces were printed for this denomination.
