New from the Bureau of Engraving and Printing (BEP) is its latest annually issued America’s Founding Fathers Currency Set. Like in past years, the limited-edition set offers two notes featuring matching serial numbers that begin with the year, in this case "2014."
Released on Tuesday, June 24, this year’s currency set has the following two notes from the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis:
- a Series 2009 $1 note bearing a portrait of George Washington and
- a Series 2003A $2 note featuring a portrait of Thomas Jefferson.
Money collectors will have to pay a bit more for 2014 America’s Founding Fathers Currency Set. This year the sets are priced at $21.95 each, or $2 more than sets from recent past years.
Just 3,000 are available, which is 2,000 less than last year. There is a household ordering limit of 50 sets in place until Tuesday, July 1, 2014. If inventory remains beyond that day, which is a very big if, the BEP indicates that the household limit will be removed and bulk pricing will be available for $18.95 for orders containing 50 sets or more.
Coin News Update: The sets sold out within days of its release.
The BEP packages the currency notes in an attractive tri-fold folder and protects them with a clear acid-free polymer sleeve. Part of the folder is dedicated to a description of the bills and their engravings.
