A print run of 8,000 (3x more than last year) and they sell out the first month! That's a testament to the expanded reach of the Mint's distribution list. Bet that makes the BEP very happy.

It will be interesting to see whether the BEP decides to do an additional printing. They probably have dollar signs in their eyes.

Update: It's possible this may just be a glitch in the ordering system. Apparently some SCCS members who have ordered from the site were having issues with the pricing. We'll see if it gets fixed or if it really is a sell-out.

I just got off the phone with the marketing director at the BEP and he confirmed that the 2019 intaglio print subscriptions are indeed sold out and they will not be doing any reprints. He said they could probably have sold 10-12,000, but 8,000 was their best estimate at the time. He attributed the sales spike to the Mint's ordering platform and the collaborative product marketing they are doing. Hopefully this will give the souvenir card hobby a bit of a boost in visibility.

He also provided some other info on the 2020 intaglio print program, which I will post in a separate thread.

Thanks for update. First of three cards arrived about 10 days ago. Hope the 2020’s feature engraved currency ?

I would love it if they did, but can you think of any WWII-themed currency that they could use? Actually, a better place to respond would be on my follow-up thread.

The Hawaii and North Africa notes relate to WWII.
