The latest issue in the Bureau of Engraving and Printing Lucky Money
Collection, celebrating the Year of the Dog 2018, will go on sale Nov.
15 at 8:00 a.m. Eastern Time.
Thanks to its international appeal, the Lucky Money Collection is
one of the BEP’s most successful products, often selling out quickly.
The “Dog” is one of the 12 annually rotating zodiac signs by which a
Chinese year is named. The Year of the Dog will begin on Feb. 16, 2018.
The Lucky Money Note is an Uncirculated Series 2013 $1 Federal
Reserve note with a serial number beginning with “8888.” The number 8
represents prosperity and wealth because it sounds like the Chinese
word for “becoming rich.”
Brockage or contact mark? Mike Diamond explains.
Also in our Nov. 20 issue, a reader found a fascinating Barber
dime that’s over a century old; John Wexler profiled what makes it different.
The BEP adds that the Year of the Dog 2018 represents good fortune
and prosperity, signifying success in the New Year and also that it
symbolizes character traits such as loyalty and honesty.
Single notes cost $5.95. Once purchase limit restrictions are lifted
on Nov. 22, orders for 50 to 999 notes will be priced at $4.50 each,
and for 1,000 or more notes will be priced at $3.95 each. A total of
108,888 notes will be available for sale.
