The few Commemorative coins listed below were minted in larger quantity and released for general circulation at face value. Some of them are more difficult to find in Mint Uncrculated state than the other commemorative issues which were Non Circulating Legal Tender (NCLT) coins and since 1991 have been sold at a premium by the Central Bank. See some comments.
