2001 $50 Bill, CG-A

Have a fifty dollar note and want to know its value? Leave a comment

This was the last of non-colorized series of fifties. It is ten years old but holds no extra value. Made the classic way with intaglio printing and special watermark linen. For me money is money meaning it doe not matter what shape or color as long as I can use it then it is fine.


Starbucks is currently hooking up with Square to become a cashless coffee joint. I have both of those apps on my phone but what they are proposing is different. As you into or close to a Starbucks your phone can let you know and pre-order you favorite, or you can select your own concoction. By the time you get to the counter everything is ready and you pick it up and walk out or eat in. The phone and the register will talk and settle up the bill using your pre-selected account. The only confirmation needed may be a barista who matches your face in your account profile to the person who picks it up.

Yup, the chance for confusion will be tripled as a husband picks up his wife's order or many other reasons where a profile pic is not matching. Still you can show a phone receipt to verify but this is a trial period to work out any bugs.

That all is nice but it makes using the above bill less and less common. These bills will long outlast your phone because of that and will likely never gain much value.  Still you cannot stop progress especially without your morning cup of coffee.

Here's the stats for this bill...
Type/Federal Bank: $50 Note / Philadelphia
Year: 2001
Printings: 35,200,000
Printed: December 2002
Run: 6th of 11 from CG16000001A - CG19200000A
Value: $50.00 in Very-Fine

Do you have currency and want to know its value? Leave a comment/question and I will do my best to find out the price and history for you.

Depends on serial number but on average in mint about $30.00 each.

Hi, I was curious to know more about a 1977 $50 dollar bill I came across (the condition is far from mint, so I guess I'm more curious than hopeful). The border is pretty far off on the front and slightly off on the back. It's serial number is B11624148 A. Thanks for any help you can offer.

No extra value.
The faulty alignment error is too minor and does not add value, plus 1997 is still fairly modern.

Thank you Man,
The year actually 1977 though. On the front of the bill, the first line starts about 1/10 of a mm from the edge of the bill (though the bill is a bit worn) and the bottom line starts about 4/10mm from the edge. The back is roughly 4/10mm and 7/10mm respectively. Does that clarify/change anything? Thank you so much again.

It does not change the value.

Only if the Off-Center is so severe that you see a bit of another bill does it add value.

Or if the part of the design is cutoff.
