A set of two $2 Federal Reserve notes will be offered by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing starting May 14, including a Series 2009 note, the first $2 note of its kind.
The 2013 $2 Double Deuce set is a limited edition of 5,000 sets. The set has a Series 2003A $2 note printed for the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City and a Series 2009 $2 note printed for the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco.
Each Series 2003A and 2009 note features matching serial numbers beginning with “2013.”
According the BEP, the Series 2009 $2 notes in the set are the first Federal Reserve notes of that series to be printed. Prior to the printing of the Series 2009 notes, the latest $2 FRNs were from the 2003A series.
The sets are packaged in a tri-fold presentation folder, with each note protected by a clear acid-free polymer sleeve.
A purchase limit of 25 sets per household will be imposed during the pre-release period of May 14 to May 27. After May 27 purchase restrictions will be waived.
The sets are priced at $34.95 each. Bulk pricing for quantities of 25 or more sets is available at $29.95.
The sets will begin to ship on May 28.
