What is the cost of a Series E/EE Savings Bond?
Series E bonds haven’t been issued since 1980. When they were issued, they were sold for 75% of face value (you paid $75 for a $100 bond).
Paper (or definitive) Series EE bonds are sold at 50% of face value (you pay $50 for a $100 bond) and come in eight face-value denominations: $50, $75, $100, $200, $500, $1,000, $5,000, and $10,000.
Electronic (or book) Series EE Savings Bonds sold online at TreasuryDirect – as well as both paper and electronic Series I Savings Bonds – are issued at full face value (you pay $100 for a $100 bond) and are available in any amount, to the penny, from $25 to $5,000.
