U.S. Treasury Brings Historic $1 Billion Display to Phoenix

It won't cost a cent to see $100,000 bills and a multi-million dollar nickel, and get Arizona's first look in person at the new $5 bill

(Phoenix, Arizona) -- The U.S. Treasury Department will have a $1 billion display -- including examples of $100,000 bills -- at the American Numismatic Association's National Money Show™ in the Phoenix Convention Center's West Building, 100 North 3rd Street, March 7 - 9, 2008. The exhibit will be the first public appearance in Arizona of the redesigned $5 bill that goes into circulation on March 13.

But it won't cost a cent to see a billion bucks. The three-day collector's show and educational family event is free and open to the public.

The Treasury's Bureau of Engraving and Printing (BEP) will bring its eye-opening "billion dollar display" of high denomination money to Phoenix for the first time. Other fascinating exhibits at the show include the famous, multi-million dollar 1913 Liberty Head nickel that was the object of a recent nationwide search; colorful, century-old Arizona paper money; and displays by the United States Mint. . . .
