The Bureau of Engraving and Printing is accepting orders for the America’s Founding Fathers 2015 Currency Set, its latest annually issued product with $1 and $2 bills.
Each currency set protectively holds a Series 2013 $1 note with a portrait of George Washington and a Series 2009 $2 note with Thomas Jefferson’s portrait. This year, the notes are from the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and have matching serial numbers that start with "2015."
These sets are priced at $21.95 each, the same since their $2 increase in 2014. Today, April 15, is the last day the household limit of 10 sets is in effect. Beginning on the 16th, provided they don’t sell out, sets will be available at bulk pricing of $18.95 for orders of 50 or more. They begin shipping on the 16th as well.
This year’s product limit at 5,000 sets went back up to their 2013 level. The total dropped last year to just 3,000 sets, and they sold out within days. Prior year sets also sold out.
Packaging includes a decorative tri-fold display folder where the notes are protected in a clear acid-free polymer sleeve. Part of the folder offers a description of the notes and their engravings.
The set may be ordered directly from the BEP’s online store at www.moneyfactorystore.gov.
