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!

Zambia - Bank of Zambia 50th Golden Anniversary 1964-2014

Fifty Kwacha
Dated 2014
Reverse
This commemorative note of 50 Kwacha was issued to celebrate the country's central bank, the Bank of Zambia, Golden Jubilee Anniversary (50th year). The bank was established on 24 October 1964. Whilst this note is all about the central bank celebration, the design is more like honoring the country's Heads of State (past and present) since gaining independence in 1964 with the portraits of Dr Kenneth David Kaunda (1964-1991), Dr Frederick Jacob Titus Chiluba (1991-2002), Levy Patrick Mwanawasa (2002-2008), Rupiah Bwezani Banda (2008-2011) and Michael Chilufya Sata (2011-2014). In addition to this commemorative banknote, the bank also issued a bimetallic coin with a face value of K50, bearing the portrait of the Michael Chilufya Sata. Michael Sata passed away on the 28.10.2014 and has since been replaced by Edgar Lungu as President of Zambia on 25.01.2015
