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

Cambodia - 2015 & 2016 Prints King Norodom Sihamoni Coronation Celebration 2017

ព្រះរាជាណាចក្រកម្ពុជា / Kingdom of Cambodia

National Bank of Cambodia

These two notes were released into circulation on 25.10.2017 in time for the celebration of King Norodom Sihamoni's Coronation Anniversary. His Majesty was crowned on 29.10.2004. The 1000 Riels note is printed with the year date of 2016 and 2015 for the 5000 Riels note. Whilst some websites have reported these as commemorative notes, I doubt they are. I believe they were released to coincide with the Coronation Anniversary celebration.
