Next month, on Jan. 7, 2016, the Bureau of Engraving and Printing will open sales of its 2016 Intaglio Print Subscription Program, "Independence Collection."
The 2016 BEP program focuses on the Declaration of Independence with three prints titled Life, Liberty, and Pursuit of Happiness.
"The collection features an exquisite compilation of unique, engraved vignettes focusing on the age-old art of intaglio printing," describes the BEP.
By joining the subscription program, the collection of three prints may be purchased for $51.00, which is a savings of $16.50 off the cost of ordering them separately.
Each print will go on sale individually for $22.50, and launch at staggered intervals throughout 2016. The subscription not only offers a cheaper price per print, it guarantees subscribers will get all three. The subscription ordering deadline is Jan. 31, 2016.
Individual release dates for the "Independence Collection" Intaglio Prints are:
- Life will launch on Jan. 7, 2016 at the same time as the BEP participates at the Florida United Numismatists convention in Tampa, Florida
- Liberty will launch on Mar. 3, 2016
- Pursuit of Happiness will launch on Aug. 9, 2016
Beginning at 8:00 a.m. ET on the 7th, the BEP will accept subscription orders on its website, www.moneyfactorystore.gov/intaglioprints.aspx.
Measuring 8 1/2" x 11", each print will ship after its first day of sale. Larger BEP images of each print follow.
