2004-A $50 Bill, GE-A

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

Do you know why they added an A under SERIES 2004?

It was because the United States got a new Treasurer. Anna Escobedo Cabral replaced Rosario Martin and all currency that was currently printed must reflect that change. The change is minor just a signature so the design series of 2004 just needed a little altering. Instead of calling this a new series with a new year they just add a letter A. If another small change in the design or signature was needed they would have 2004-B and so on.


The rest of the bill is very much the same as the rest of colorized fifties. There is always a bit of confusion when new bills are printed yet the year on stays the same. This is the original design year of the note and not the date printed. Currently most bills have the 2009 series year but have been printed in 2011 and 2012. There is no error it is just how the money is usually printed. It keeps the design simple and cost less than having a new date stamped on the money every year.

Here's the stats for this bill...
Type/Federal Bank: $50 Note / Richmond
Year: 2004 A
Printings: 60,800,000
