This morning, I spoke with Kevin Brown, marketing manager at the Bureau of Engraving and Printing. Like myself, he was working from home and said a lot of work there was being done through teleconferences, although the presses were still rolling. Right now, the focus is on limiting exposure to the virus and keeping their employees safe and healthy.

With priority being given to providing the nation with a stable money supply, there is no firm timetable for the 2020 intaglio print program. Travel remains restricted, so the BEP and the Mint will not be attending the summer FUN show and the August ANA show in Pittsburgh also looks unlikely, but they are waiting to see how and when Pennsylvania lifts quarantine restrictions. The intaglio print theme is still the 75th anniversary of WWII, with three cards forming a triptych design. The planned Women's Suffrage card sounds like a question mark. As production gets pushed further into the year, the BEP may not have the resources to do everything.

He also mentioned that the Mayflower design used for the spider press card at January's FUN show will probably be reused as part of a currency set. But for the time being everything is on hold.
