The Bureau of Engraving and Printing’s Report of Federal Reserve
notes printed for April 2018 offers a little bit of good news for
collectors of modern paper currency, and prospects that the remainder
of the year should bring a lot more.
The Federal Reserve System’s print order for the 2018 fiscal year
included all denominations except the $2 note. But only the Series
2017 $1 and $20 with the facsimile signatures of U.S. Treasurer Jovita
Carranza and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, and the Series 2013
$100 note with those of Rosa Gumataotao Rios and Jacob Lew had been
printed as of April 30.
No Series 2017 $5, $10, or $50 notes were printed yet. The $5 note
is still being printed with the Series 2013 designation. The fiscal
year ends Sept. 30.
What 1848 large cent is always
fake?: One variety of 1848 Coronet cent is always
counterfeit. It sells for thousands of dollars while genuine 1848
cents can be bought for $24.
The only Series 2017 $1 notes printed at the Washington facility so
far this year are regular issues for the New York (B) and Atlanta (F)
banks, and star notes for the Atlanta bank. With the addition of new
regular Minneapolis (I) notes, and Minneapolis and St. Louis (H) star
notes, the Fort Worth, Texas, plant’s output now includes those, plus
St. Louis and San Francisco (L) regular issues, and Chicago (G)
regular and star notes.
The population of Series 2017 $20 notes is thus far limited to
Philadelphia (C), Richmond (E), and Atlanta notes, plus New York star
notes from the Washington facility, and San Francisco regular and star
notes from Fort Worth BEP plant.
The $100 denomination is only printed at the Fort Worth facility.
With the addition of April’s 25,600,000 notes for the Dallas (K)
district, the full roster for regular issues is: Boston (A), New York,
Cleveland (D), Richmond, Atlanta, St. Louis, and Dallas. The only
Series 2013 $100 star notes are for the New York and San Francisco
banks. No $100 notes have been printed for the Philadelphia, Chicago,
Minneapolis, and Kansas City banks.
