Predictions on when Series 2017 $2 will be available?

What is the Series 2013 inventory?

    The BEP just printed over 51 million $2 FRNs in November 2018. These qualify as production for fiscal year 2019. It may be a while before you see any more of these.

    FWIW, the article linked is almost two years old.

    Thanks @mbwizkid. Looking to add the 2017 32-Note sheet. BEP still has the 2013. The article was just a gauge of the initial 2017 currency releases with new Sec’s signature.

    As of Nov 18, BEP still printing series 2013 $2.


    Dec 18 and Jan 19 reports do not indicate any $2 printed.

    Federal Reserves’s print order for FY2019.

    153,600,000 notes of the $2.

    Maybe in 2020 we will see the series 2017 $2?

    Possible new location for a BEP printing facility in Greenbelt, MD to replace the DC site.

    Now ramp up them $2.


    BEP focuses on Maryland for possible site for new printing facility
    Current USDA complex may serve as location for the announced new plant

    Published : 04/15/19

    An April 1 news release from the Army Corps of Engineers, issued in conjunction with the Bureau of Engraving and Printing and the U.S. Department of Agriculture, offers a hint that the search for a site to host a new BEP printing facility in the Washington area may be over.

    The announcement confirmed a report by The Greenbelt News Review in Maryland on Feb. 22 stating that the BEP met with the Greenbelt City Council to tell them of plans to move its printing operation out of Washington. The story said that the preferred location was a 100-acre site in the USDA’s Beltsville Agricultural Research Center, where only about half of its 500 buildings are currently being used.

    I wonder if notes printed at the new facility will have a "G", similar to the "FW" Fort Worth notes.

    Collector and dealer in obsolete currency. Always buying all obsolete bank notes and scrip. Ebay listings

    That would be interesting.

    Wonder if there would be a premium for any of the last run sheets from DC if this move does occur.

    Meaningful Access Program

    Currency Identification Mobile Apps

    EyeNote® App

    Originally released in 2011, EyeNote® is a free mobile device application developed by the BEP as an aid for blind or visually impaired individuals to identify denominations of Federal Reserve notes from Series 1996 to the present. EyeNote® is built on the Apple iOS platform and is available to download for free in the Apple App Store℠.

    The app uses image recognition technology and the device’s integrated camera to recognize a Federal Reserve note and communicate the note’s denomination back to the user. Since it utilizes a continuous scan function, there is no need to hold the device still or capture a photo first; once the app scans the note, it denominates the currency.

    As of January 22, 2018, the updated EyeNote® 3.0 app is now 64-bit and works on Apple mobile devices that support iOS version 9.1 or greater. These include Apple iPhone® 5 and newer models, 5th generation iPod® Touch and later generations, and iPad®2 and newer models.

    Other EyeNote® Features:

    • Utilizes VoiceOver for vocal and gesture feedback if it is turned on for the target iOS device.
    • Privacy mode communicates results with an audible beep or pulse pattern.
    • Runs without any special filters or background material
    • Does not require a data connection – all processing on device
    • One touch, hand-held operation
    • Identifies face and back of note in any orientation
    • Camera flash is not required
    • 2 to 4 second response time
    • Supports English and Spanish languages

    EyeNote® does not authenticate a note as being either genuine or counterfeit. Please refer to the license agreement on the Apple AppStore℠ for additional information. Directions regarding installing and using the EyeNote® app can be viewed here.

    IDEAL® Currency Identifier

    The BEP, in collaboration with the Department of Education, assisted in the development of the IDEAL® Currency Identifier, a free downloadable app that operates on the Android platform. It uses text-to-speech voice and advanced image recognition technology to read a note and, in a matter of seconds, provides users with an audible response indicating the note’s denomination. IDEAL works locally on the device and needs no Internet connectivity. This application was not designed to, and does not, identify counterfeit currency.
    The launch of these apps is not in lieu-of the other accommodations the government is developing to assist blind and visually impaired individuals in denominating U.S. currency. These apps simply provide another option for the public, who are increasingly using mobile devices, to independently denominate U.S. currency.

    Statement from Bureau of Engraving and Printing Director Len Olijar

    “The Advanced Counterfeit Deterrence Steering Committee, which includes membership from the BEP, the US Secret Service and the Federal Reserve System, was chartered to make design and security recommendations to the Secretary of the Treasury. At this time, the ACD Committee and BEP remain focused on developing security features for the upcoming redesign.

    “As technology has evolved, banknote production has vastly changed over the last three decades. The next family of notes require new, overt and covert security features for the public, the banknote equipment manufacturers, and the central bank, to keep our currency safe and secure. Security features also need to work in mass production. A design can change during testing. The overwhelming success of the redesigned $100 in thwarting counterfeiting, is greatly due to the effectiveness of the blue security thread which is a public feature (and which a design was integrated around afterwards). That development alone of that security feature took approximately 10 years to finalize.

    “Moreover, BEP was never going to unveil a note design in 2020. To keep our currency safe and secure, it is unwise to give counterfeiters a look at a potential future note far in advance of a note going into circulation. Additionally, if the concept of a note that was made public by the government were to change during that lengthy amount of time, it would create confusion in the global marketplace, further aiding counterfeiters.

    “No Bureau or Department official has ‘scrapped’ anything; it is too early to develop an integrated concept or design until security features are finalized. The aesthetics or look of the note has always come after and been driven by the security features. Everything remains on the table.

    “The illustration published by the New York Times was a copy of an old Series note with the signatures of former officials, with a different image super-imposed on it. It is not a new $20 note, as incorrectly stated by the New York Times, in any way, shape or form. The facsimile contained no security features or offset printing included on currency notes. There is nothing about that illustration that even begins to meet technical requirements for the next family of notes.”
