Each currency set protectively holds a Series 2013 $1 note with a portrait of George Washington and a Series 2009 $2 note with Thomas Jefferson’s portrait. This year, the notes are from the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and have matching serial numbers that start with "2015."

These sets are priced at $21.95 each, the same since their $2 increase in 2014. Today, April 15, is the last day the household limit of 10 sets is in effect. Beginning on the 16th, provided they don’t sell out, sets will be available at bulk pricing of $18.95 for orders of 50 or more. They begin shipping on the 16th as well.

This year’s product limit at 5,000 sets went back up to their 2013 level. The total dropped last year to just 3,000 sets, and they sold out within days. Prior year sets also sold out.

Packaging includes a decorative tri-fold display folder where the notes are protected in a clear acid-free polymer sleeve. Part of the folder offers a description of the notes and their engravings.

The set may be ordered directly from the BEP’s online store at www.moneyfactorystore.gov.

Oh yes, I am going to spend $21.95 on a $1.00 & 2.00 bill. That makes sense. My goodness what a dea. l I guess if they were star notes it would be $50.00 a set. Give me a break!

Yes this is really a good deal, especially since my bankers tell me that there is no such thing as a $2.00 bill, and that even if there was, you cannot use it to buy anything.

Boz, you’re being sarcastic, right? Or did they really tell you that?!

I ask b/c I’m willing to believe anything about the ignorance of some people in banks. One time I warned my bank that I’d be using my debit card to withdraw cash in Europe. The guy said it wouldn’t work because European ATMs don’t dispense American bills. (whimper …)
