BEP Production FiguresThe U.S. government in February produced more banknotes for the second consecutive month, according to Bureau of Engraving and Printing (BEP) figures released Friday, March 13.

The agency in February printed more $1s, $20s and $100s and the same amount of $10s and $50s as January. No $5s were produced in either month.

In total, 556,800,000 banknotes were produced last month valued at $25,286,400,000. In contrast, the BEP printed 489.6 M notes worth $20.3 billion in January.

Spread across the 28 days in February, the BEP averaged some 19.9 million notes per day with a total daily face value worth about $903 million.

The agency also produced 3.2 million $1 star notes (total of these not in table below). Star notes are replacements for misprinted notes or certain serial numbers, like 000 000 000. These notes are generally more desirable to collectors as they are rarer.
