United States of America $2 and $5. This is a commemorative folder issued on 11.12.2012 to celebrate the 150th Anniversary of the United States Bureau of Engraving and Printing (BEP - 2 locations at Washington DC and Forth Worth Texas). This is a limited edition consists of 2 notes set featuring a Series 2009 $2 note from the Federal Reserve of New York and a Series 2009 $5 note from the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago. The $2 note bears a serial number beginning with '2012' to celebrate the 150 years of the pride, craftsmanship and innovation, and the $5 serial number begins with "1862" to symbolise the origin of the BEP. For each set the last 4 serial numbers on the notes are matching. Only 10,000 sets are printed and each set is sold for US$49.95. Despite such a low limited issue, I can't say they are selling like hot cakes as it has no restriction as to how many sets a customer can buy. In fact, you can buy 10 sets or more at a discounted price of $44.95 each. Perhaps this is because only customers in the USA, US Virgins Island, US Minor Outlying Islands and Canada can buy them. With a USA population of 315+ million (excluding Canada), 10,000 sets is indeed a very low issue.
