1990 $20 Bill, I-A

Have any $20 bill and want to know its value? Leave a comment

This one of the first $20 notes printed in Fort Worth, Texas. In May of 1985 a study is commissioned by The Bureau of Engraving and Printing to have a western facility opened to better serve the western U.S. and serve as a back up. By 1986 Fort Worth is chosen and by December 1990 they started printing notes.



These 1990 notes were also the first to feature polymer security strips and micro-printing. At this point the Bureau of Engraving and Printing was prepared to modernize our money. U.S. money lacked many common security features but upgrading the money meant upgrading the printers. To do this a back up is needed because printing money is non-stop.

Here's the stats for this bill...
Type/Federal Bank: $20 Note - Fort Worth / Minneapolis
Year: 1990
Printings: 70,400,000
Printed: June 1994
Run: 8th of 11 from I51200001A - I57600000A
Value: $20.00 in VF 

Some may notice an extra serial number close to the date in purple.


This was not part of the original design instead it is a bank stamp. These notes were once bundled and shipped from one bank to another. To keep track they were strapped together and the straps had a unique identification number stamped on it. Often the thin straps were partially missed and the bank information was marked on the top bill. This does not add value and in most cases would lower the value.

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.

$1 1988-A. G52386752P
$1 1963-B. g99826908H
$1 2001. C00000907*

Also I was wondering if there was a particular book u could suggest for referencing star notes and newer fed reserve notes? Thanks for the help

May I add that the values were for circulated condition or less than very-fine.

Condition will change value so be careful when selling if they are near perfect.

no, if they were worth more I prob would but I think I will add them to the keep pile for now and see if they appreciate after a couple years. I got them all in change from a bank

1950 series $10 bill with the letter D under the date and the serial # is G29576131H

Common 115,480,000 were printed in 1965.

It's about $15.00.

Thank you for that information. My son noticed on the back of it that it looks like one of the flags is upside down was that common?

That is an illusion.

The designer wanted to make it look like wavy flags but the shadows were too deep and some people got confused and thought they were upside down.

They were never upside down and for later notes the design was changed and the shadow was reduced.

I believe I have one of the 1990 $20.00 bills. I noticed it because the 20's are the front are a lot smaller. I have been hanging onto it. The number is A07091173A. Please let me know its value.

Just $20.00, it is still new and common.
