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.
