New coin and currency products will get introduced at the ANA National Money Show in Atlanta, the United States Mint and Bureau of Engraving and Printing (BEP) have announced.
Held at the Cobb Galleria Centre, Treasurer of the United States Rosie Rios will take part in the opening ribbon cutting ceremony at 12:45 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 27. She will also sign currency at a booth, #845, shared by the BEP and U.S. Mint from 1:30 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. The show will end on Saturday, March 1.
As already discussed on CoinNews.net, the BEP will introduce two new products on Thursday, $100 uncut currency sheets and 2014 Army Intaglio Prints. The currency sheets include the newly designed $100s, and are a first time ever product. The Army Intaglio Print is the first of five in the BEP’s Defenders of Freedom series. They will be available at the show as well as online beginning Thursday at 8:00 a.m. through www.moneyfactory.gov.
"The BEP is showcasing its Billion Dollar Exhibit, which features more than $1 billion worth of rare antique currency, including sheets of $100,000 currency notes, Treasury Bonds, and Gold and Silver Certificates," a BEP news release noted.
