A selection of the many BEP Uncut Currency Sheet products. Most of them are now scheduled for release on October 1.

After experiencing multiple delays, release dates are now available for certain collectible money products from the Bureau of Engraving and Printing (BEP).

This is somewhat akin to the United States Postal Service selling postage stamps to the stamp collecting public. Since the stamps purchased by collectors will most likely never be used for postage, the Postal Service is only out the price of printing them and is therefore not financially accountable for the more consequential cost of the assorted mailing services that are meant to be provided as a result of their use.

Kaiser, That is a good thing about the philatelic hobby & good for the USPS bottom line for sure. You can get most current USA postage stamps at face value from the USPS website or any Post Office. They sometimes offer some special stamps for a premium over face value that goes to charities like the Breast Cancer Awareness stamp. The BEP used to engrave all stamp designs in the old intaglio engraving method on steel plates like they do still for all paper money, but due to high production costs switched to cheaper off-set printing stamps & mostly adhesive… Read more »

Seth, Thanks for pointing out the other side of the coin (stamp?) in regard to acquiring stamps from the USPS, that it isn’t in fact just a bonus for the Postal Service when customers buy but don’t use their products but also for the stamp collectors aka numismatists who are thus able to purchase their guaranteed pristine collectables at face value; imagine if we coin collectors could do that also! As I mentioned in a previous post I too was a stamp collector prior to being a coin collector. And in case you don’t recall, it is thanks to one… Read more »

By the way, Seth, I had long been wondering if the BEP was even going to get into the game this year. It’s clearly a late start and with all those products they apparently still want to put out I can see their program going into next year.

Seth Riesling

Kaiser, Hopefully the BEP will continue to offer their special products after a long pandemic break. Special or “fancy” serial numbers on banknotes are fantastic collectibles IMHO & uncut sheets too. BTW, I can’t believe your brother sold your stamp collection right from under you! I hope he felt guilty about it at least. My younger brother (by 9 years) sold a great Star Wars collectible I bought on our NSA base small Stars & Stripes book store which my mother managed for 2 years. It was a publication, issue #1 Star Trek poster “magazine” that had articles on one… Read more »


yeah but at least most of the collectible stuff USPS sells is at face value, unlike all of the mint and BEP products – plus if you get ‘forever’ stamps, then at least you even get some inflation protection on your investment. assuming you still can mail things in the future, that is.

Kaiser Wilhelm


Quite right in that regard, and that is what makes stamps a good buy as such, i.e. at least up front. However, and there is almost always some sort of big however, unlike the the way it works when it comes to coins, stamps themselves do not have any intrinsic value, so if you want to sell them you’ll still only get face value.


I love the ‘forever’ stamps. I bought $500-$600 worth of .41c ‘forever’ stamps from Costco and I still have several pack left. Since I do most of my transactions on-line, I don’t use many per year. Love the discount I get when I do use the USPS!


COVID-19? Really? Sounds like a lame excuse to me. I haven’t seen a single piece of currency ($1 to $100) dated later than 2017A. Still Trump era notes. BEP is lagging. Maybe some Trump holdovers there. Waiting until 2025 to issue new notes.
