BEP intaglio prints recall WWI

The Bureau of Engraving and Printing has introduced the latest addition to the Intaglio Print Subscription Program, the World War I 100th Anniversary 2018 Intaglio Print Collection.

The Treasury Department issued Liberty Loans and Victory Bonds produced by the BEP to assist with financing the Great War. This collection highlights allegorical and historical figures featured on these bonds, engraved American iconography, and currency issued during the war.

The 100th anniversary of WWI is marked on new Bureau of Engraving and Printing intaglio prints.

The collection consists of three intaglio prints: “Entry,” “Homefront,” and “Victory.” The first card, “Entry,” was slated to go on sale Jan. 23.

The second card, “Homefront,” will go on sale Mar. 8.

The third card, “Victory,” will go on sale Aug. 14, in conjunction with BEP’s participation in the American Numismatic Association’s World’s Fair of Money Convention in Philadelphia.

To participate in BEP’s 2018 Intaglio Print Subscription Program and to ensure receipt of each intaglio print, subscriptions must be received by Feb. 8. The entire three-card collection is $51. Individual cards are $20 through the BEP gift shops and $22.50 through mail order/Internet.
