U.S. Currency Education Program Launches USCURRENCY.GOV as New Central Hub for Education and Training Resources
Launched on September 10, www.uscurrency.gov provides educational content and tools to allow users to explore all designs and denominations of Federal Reserve notes. It replaces www.newmoney.gov and features new resources, including a training module for cash handlers, a quick reference guide for authenticating currency at the point of sale, and animated educational videos. The site, offered in mobile and desktop versions, makes it easier for the global public to access information about U.S. currency. Uscurrency.gov is currently available in English and Spanish, with additional language options to be added in 2016.
The U.S. Currency Education Program (CEP) is an interagency program managed by the Federal Reserve Board in partnership with the U.S. Secret Service and the Bureau of Engraving and Printing. The CEP is responsible for ensuring that users of U.S. currency around the world have access to education, training, and information about the more than $1.3 trillion worth of U.S. currency in circulation.
