September 27, 2018 – The two U.S. currency titans, the Bureau of Engraving and Printing (BEP) and the United States Mint, have formed a strategic alliance to sell BEP products through the Mint’s e-commerce system beginning this fall. This collaboration will offer collectors, gift-givers, and other customers a better experience and greater variety of numismatic currency products.
Effective Monday, October 1, 2018, BEP products will only be available for online purchase through the Mint’s online store or by calling 1-800-USA-MINT (872-6468). Hearing and speech impaired customers with TTY equipment may order by calling 1-888-321-MINT (6468). BEP products will still be available at the BEP Washington, DC and Ft. Worth, Texas visitor center gift shops; some BEP products will also be available at Mint retail locations. BEP bulk sales customers should continue to place orders through the BEP at 1-800-456-3408.
Please note that BEP online customer accounts will not be transferred to the Mint. BEP customers are encouraged to set up new accounts on the Mint’s website to take advantage of the Mint’s loyalty program, to track purchases of BEP products, and to receive BEP and Mint product and promotion notifications.
As of Monday, September 17, 2018, online orders are no longer accepted through BEP’s online store, or telephone sales department in preparation for the transition; messaging to that effect will be posted. Beginning October 1 at 8:00 a.m. (ET), this website will no longer be accessible, and all BEP online and social media sales traffic will be redirected to the U.S. Mint’s website.
Questions regarding this transition or BEP product orders placed prior to September 17, 2018, may be directed to BEP’s Mail Order Sales Department by telephone at 1-800-456-3408. For additional information about BEP or currency production, follow BEP on Twitter and Facebook. For questions regarding orders placed on the Mint’s website, call 1-800-872-6468.
