Series 2021

I would like to ask why it is taking so long for the new notes to be made and hit circulation. I mean, it has been over 2 years, and only ones and fives have been made recently. I am asking because I would like to see some of the new star notes in the packs I get from the bank.

    It took until September of 2022, almost two years after President Biden became president to appoint the Treasurer, Lynn Malebra. During that period, 2017A notes were still being printed, as they are today. The wheels of change in Washington move slowly especially if there’s something in place that’s currently working fine. So far, only $1 and $5 notes are printed with the history making signatures of two women.

    Thanks for responding, I am interested to know when other denominations will be made, especially the $2 notes.

    The BEP printed the majority of the 2017A $2 notes in August and September of 2019. They didn’t print anymore $2 notes until late 2021. They didn’t print any $2 notes in 2022 and very few this year. Depending on the monetary requests from the 12 Fed Districts, it’s anyone’s guess when they’ll start printing series 2021 $2 notes…or $10, $20, $50 and $100 notes for that matter.

    Thank you for your information. Would you mind telling me where to find this type of information for myself?

    For some of the information, I use the uspapermoney.info website. This is the page that shows what I explained above. https://www.uspapermoney.io/serials/f2017ab.html

    The information concerning the new U.S. Treasurer was covered by several news organizations and social media outlets.

    Looks like they are printing lots of them on both sides of the Country. But they still aren't working their way to the banks in large numbers yet.

    The increased use of debit and credit cards has slowed how fast paper money circulates.

    Globally, there's the very successful Better Than Cash Alliance attacking cash use. They nearly wiped out the use of cash in Canada during Covid-19. Their posters were in every business that remained open (to USE YOUR CARD- HELP PREVENT COVID, etc). Even after it was publicized that Covid was airborne (& cash had no connection) it was hard to get anyone to accept cash.

    Ironically CDN's hoarded $50 notes (I guess some of the seniors still remembered stories of hoarding before the Cuban Missile Crises or previous incidents the world was on edge). A few businesses remained friendly to cash (they were the "oddballs"). I continue to use cash even though I'm constantly given a card reader (& servers look at me like I'm closer to 100 than my real age).

    Now it is very difficult to pay with cash here since many retail outlets switched to automated/cashless tellers & the transition to digital/card payments has gained traction. Cash use has slowed to a trickle (I'm afraid). The same can be said for most of Europe.

    Here's an article about how important cash is by the Denmark Central bank (oh, BTW: we're getting rid of the 1000 Kroner in order to keep cash relevant??? Struggling to follow the logic).

    So the cashless phenomenon has finally hit the USA. Too bad.
