Designed for young collectors, the product features an uncirculated $2 Federal Reserve note with a serial number beginning with "2019." The note will be from the Federal Reserve Bank in New York (B), Atlanta (F), or San Francisco (L).

Priced at $9.95, the note is presented in an attractive space-themed folder and protected by a clear, acid-free polymer sleeve.

Ordering and Limits

The BEP collaborated with the United States Mint and its money products are now sold through the Mint’s e-commerce system. When released, place orders for this newest release from the Premium Currency Products section of the Mint’s website at:

https://catalog.usmint.gov/currency/premium-products/

The product’s limit is 23,000 with the mintage of the note set 1,000 higher at 24,000. In addition, there will be an initial household order limit of 50. When the household ordering limit it lifted — usually after the first 24 hours, product pricing will be discounted to $8.50 each when buying 50 or more.

About the BEP

The Bureau of Engraving and Printing’s main mission is to develop and produce United States banknotes. The agency prints billions of Federal Reserve Notes each year for delivery to the Federal Reserve System. These notes are produced at facilities in Washington, DC, and Fort Worth, TX.

Chas Barber,
Several weeks ago the Rocketships (thou shown as unavailable by the mint) started to show weekly sales again. So, at that time I asked to be sent a notice when more became available. To date, no notice yet from the mint, yet they still continue to show more weekly sales. Since “Mike” said he bought at least half of the sets perhaps he is the only one getting a notice and a chance to buy. That group seems to always get things in quantities first–think Apollo etc. Such is life. As predicted before, still believe the Rocketships may end up having more sales than were authorized.

The BEP never charged S&H in their modern history for their paper money & intaglio prints products. It is true that their website was about 15 years behind the times & they didn’t want to pay for a major computer system upgrade like the Mint did. Now that the BEP has switched to using the Mint’s private vendor company & the Mint’s website for their product sales, customer service & fulfillment center warehouse in Memphis for shipping & handling, younger customers that the Mint is trying to attract with products like this have to pay $4.95 for S&H on this $9.95 product! They should waive the S&H fee on this low-price product to be fair. Give the kids a break!
