Where is the savings bond serial number?

Savings bonds are debt securities issued by the United States Department of the Treasury to help finance the national debt. They are often used as a long-term investment, and they can be cashed in at any time. The bonds are issued in denominations of $50, $75, $100, $200, $500, $1,000, $5,000, and $10,000. Each bond has a unique serial number that is used to track the bond’s owner and value. The serial number can be found on the front of the bond certificate. For example, if you have a $100 savings bond with the serial number E012345678, the E indicates that it was issued in 1980 or later. The first two digits (01) indicate the month when it was issued, and the last six digits (234567) indicate the order in which it was issued. The higher the number, the later it was issued. You can use the serial number to check the value of your savings bond at any time.
