note the prior year, which had the high­est num­ber of notes ever printed — 108,888 — and sold out within a week of be­ing re­leased.

The Lucky Money notes have his­tor­i­cally sold well, the spokesper­son said. The se­ries made its de­but in 2000, and the BEP has al­ready cy­cled through all 12 an­i­mals of the Chi­nese zo­diac.

The de­signs of fold­ers that hold the notes are done in­ter­nally, ac­cord­ing to the spokesper­son, though the BEP turns to the Asian com­mu­nity to help de­velop the vi­su­als. The Lucky Money line, she said, is pro­duced “in honor of the Lu­nar New Year for the Asian com­mu­nity.”

The Year of the Horse 2014 note — which was listed as “tem­po­rar­ily out of stock” on the BEP web­site on Thurs­day — was priced at $5.95 each, though bulk or­ders of 50 to 999 notes cost $4.50 each and or­ders of 1,000 or more notes cost $3.95 each.

House­hold pur­chases are lim­ited to 500 units in the first week of re­lease, but will be lifted on Dec 11, ac­cord­ing to the web­site.

Or­ders of the Year of the Horse notes can be placed through the BEP’s web­site (www.mon­ey­fac­to­ry­s­tore.gov) or or­dered over phone (800456-3408) and fax (202-8741788), and will be shipped start­ing Dec 11.
