In association with the Bureau of Engraving and Printing (BEP), the United States Mint today started selling a new money product, the America’s Founding Fathers 2020 Currency Set.
Annually released and at the same $21.95 price since 2014, this year’s set holds two banknotes with matching serial numbers beginning with "2020."
The included bills are a Series 2017 $1 note and a Series 2013 $2 note, both from the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. They are protectively held within acid-free polymer sleeves in the center panel of a tri-fold presentation folder. The folder’s cover shows U.S. founding fathers George Washington and Thomas Jefferson and a sketch of the Statue of Liberty.
Panels in the folder offer information about the bills and their engravings. The folder’s back bears the BEP’s certificate of authenticity.

A mintage of 8,000 is listed for this release with a product limit of 7,600. There is no household order limit.
The 2020 America’s Founding Fathers Currency Set is available via the U.S. Mint’s premium products page located at https://catalog.usmint.gov/currency/premium-products/.
A volume discount is available for quantities over 50 bringing the total down to $18.95 per issue from $21.95.

I’m not an expert, but I bought two of these in hopes the limited mintage will allow for an increase in value. Either way, I can pass them on to my son and daughter later. I just wish I would have done the same with the enhanced reverse proof walking liberty last November.
You saved yourself 15 minutes of aggravation in November by steering clear of it. Most of us want those 15 minutes of our life back.
I am wanting to get one of these however last 3 items were all misaligned
This nice BEP product went on “currently unavailable” status the other day on the Mint’s website & is heading for a sellout.
Got 2. Now says unavailable.
