Armenia - 100000 Dram 2009

Is this a commemorative note or is it not? If it was, then what was the celebration? I believe when this note was first reported, it did claimed that this was a commemorative note. However I am unable to find anything on the central bank website of Armenia to confirm that. This is the largest denomination of notes ever issued by the Central Bank of the Republic of Armenia. The face value of this note is worth in excess of US$200+. Whilst this is in no comparison with the Euro, the design of this note looks more like a commemorative note than one that issued to meet the demand of the public. Only one prefix printed with “ԶԱ” (or ZA). This note is measured 160mm x 72mm.
