BEP offers two World War I collector sets
- Published: Sep 3, 2018, 4 AM
The final issue in the Bureau of Engraving and Printing’s 2018 Intaglio Print Program was released on Aug. 14 at the American Numismatic Association World’s Fair of Money in Philadelphia and is now available for collector purchase. “Victory” completes the three-piece World War I 100th Anniversary Commemorative Collection.
“Victory” celebrates the Nov. 11, 1918, armistice between the Allies and Germany that ended World War I. The featured image is the reverse of the series 1918 $1 Federal Reserve Bank note showing a bald eagle in flight holding the Stars and Stripes in its talons. The other images are also contemporary to the war — including the vignette of President Woodrow Wilson that was later used on the Series 1934 $100,000 gold certificate, a note not issued to the public.
