$1 Lucky 777 Notes Introduced by Bureau of Engraving and Printing

by Rhonda Kay on August 28, 2012 · 4 comments

7 has been a lucky number for the superstitious and often times many others. Earlier this month, the U.S. Bureau of Engraving and Printing (BEP) began selling new Lucky 777 notes for $5.95 each.

Making this crisp Series 2009 $1 bill unique is the serial number. It begins with no less than three "777" in a row.

Each bill is signed by Treasurer of the United States Rosie Rios and packaged within a protective vinyl holder mounted on a colorful blue folder decorated with red, white, and blue 7s in groups of three. Within the Bureau of Engraving and Printing folder holding the note is the statement:

"Lucky 777 Notes … To many, the number 7 has special meaning; it is a symbol of luck and good fortune. The enclosed uncirculated genuine $1 Federal Reserve note features a serial number beginning with no less than three number 7s in a row. You can’t get any luckier than that! Let it be your good luck charm. Good Luck!"

Large purchases are incentivized by a discount for bulk orders. The price dips to $4.50 each for orders of 50 to 999 and drops to $3.95 each for orders of 1,000 or more notes. The total number of Lucky 777 notes is not stated, and there are no household ordering limits.

When I read the article title, first thing I thought was…here come the leftovers 2012 Reverse proofs from the San Francisco set with this…thank god they didn’t!

Is this why I can never find certain serial number combinations in circulation? Are they all being held by the BEP or sellers “in the know”? I know finding a specific “date” in the serial number is like finding a needle in a haystack made of haystacks but still, you would think I would see them appear more than anomalously. I remember seeing 06071944 once (one day off…darn!). But any random 20th century date (e.g. 11301989, 02161908, 05021967, etc.)…where are they all?
