New today from the Bureau of Engraving and Printing (BEP) is its latest product for money collectors, the America’s Founding Fathers 2019 Currency Set.
Annually released and at the same $21.95 price since 2014, this year’s set holds two notes that share matching serial numbers beginning with "2019."
Inside are a Series 2017 $1 note from the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and a Series 2013 $2 note from the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco. The pair of notes respectively features founding fathers George Washington and Thomas Jefferson.
Both banknotes are within a single tri-fold folder. The folder’s center panel holds the notes within a clear, polymer sleeve that is acid-free. Its left and right side panels offer information about the bills and their engravings.
No more than 5,000 sets will be sold, according to the BEP, paralleling the limits of past issues since 2015. The BEP established a limit of 3,000 sets in 2014 and those apparently sold out too quickly.
Collectors can initially order as many 25 sets. Provided they do not sell out, the household order limit will eventually be removed (usually after 24 hours) and the BEP will offer discounted pricing of $18.95 when ordering 50 or more.
The BEP collaborated with the United States Mint and its money products are now sold through the Mint’s e-commerce system. Place orders for this newest release from the Premium Products section of the Mint’s website at:
