On Tuesday, June 18, the Bureau of Engraving and Printing (BEP) will release its newest currency product, the $2 Rocketship.
Designed for young collectors, the product features an uncirculated $2 Federal Reserve note with a serial number beginning with "2019." The note will be from the Federal Reserve Bank in New York (B), Atlanta (F), or San Francisco (L).
Priced at $9.95, the note is presented in an attractive space-themed folder and protected by a clear, acid-free polymer sleeve.

The BEP collaborated with the United States Mint and its money products are now sold through the Mint’s e-commerce system. When released, place orders for this newest release from the Premium Currency Products section of the Mint’s website at:
The product’s limit is 23,000 with the mintage of the note set 1,000 higher at 24,000. In addition, there will be an initial household order limit of 50. When the household ordering limit it lifted — usually after the first 24 hours, product pricing will be discounted to $8.50 each when buying 50 or more.
