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!

Transnistria (Pridnestrovskaia Moldavskaia Respublika ) - A set of 4 notes with commemorative overprints on each notes issued to celebrate the Transnistrian Moldovian Republic 25th Anniversary of Independence 1990-2015. The denominations issued are the 1, 5, 10 and 25 Rubles. The designs are the same as previous notes, first issued in 2007 and later modified in 2012. As usual, all notes are printed with the independence logo on the right hand side where the watermark is located. A total of 2,525 sets issued. Not sure why the unusual quantity, but I supposed it's meant to read 25-25. All notes were released and sold at a premium. Independence day is celebrated on 2nd of September each year and these notes were released on 27.8.2015.
