Since I usually get singles, I was beginning to wonder if I’d ever get to see a 2009 bill. The first bills to come out as Series 2009 were the $20 bills. Next came the $1 bills. Despite occasionally getting twenties from ATMs, I have yet to see either. Now, according to The Bureau of Engraving and Printing’s production report page, there are now going to be Series 2009 $100 bills.

It looks like the Series 2009 will be of a new design. I don’t see anything on exactly what it will look like. I guess we’ll have to wait until next month to find out. I guess this means that the BEP is producing them, but will be holding off until next month before releasing them.

For now, I’ll just have to keep going through the $1 and $20 bills to be able to enter a Series 2009.
