Research - Currency

The Bureau of Engraving and Printing has been involved with the nation's currency since 1862. Over the decades, the form and production of currency has undergone many changes. From hand operated presses creating four-item sheets of large-sized currency, the printing of currency in the BEP has evolved to high-speed presses capable of printing 50-subject sheets of small-sized Federal Reserve notes.
