USA issues special Year of the Horse notes

The US Bureau of Engraving and Printing (BEP) has once again released a special folder containing a one dollar banknote. To celebrate the Year of the Horse and honor the Chinese Lunar New Year, the BEP has printed crisp uncirculated $1 notes with serial numbers beginning with "8888", which pronounced in Chinese sounds like the word for "prosper" and is considered by many to be especially lucky. The product is further limited to 88,888 units. Year of the Horse Lucky Money $1 notes are priced at $5.95 each and are placed in a red folder. If you want one yourself, you can visit the shop here.
