Ideals in Allegory DEMOCRACY Intaglio Print

(First day of sale: December 1, 2015 – 8:00 A.M. Eastern Time) — The Bureau of Engraving and Printing is pleased to introduce a new intaglio print, “Ideals in Allegory – Democracy,” which is dedicated to female allegorical figures that represent a government of the people, by the people, and for the people. This print features an exquisite compilation of unique engraved vignettes focusing on the age-old art of intaglio printing.

Secretary of the Treasury Jack Lew announced earlier this year that the next generation of currency will feature the theme of democracy and for the first time in more than a century, our paper currency will feature the portrait of a woman. This is a historic moment – changes have only been made to the faces on our currency a few times since Federal Reserve notes were first put into circulation in 1914.

The “Ideals in Allegory – Democracy” print is $22.50. Bulk pricing is available for this print.

This print measures 8 1/2” x 11”
