“These I Bonds will give Americans a way to save and be protected from inflation,” said Treasury Secretary Rubin, who joined Vice President Gore in announcing the new bonds and presenting each individual representing those honored a portrait as it appears on the Series I Inflation-Indexed Savings Bonds.

“The design of this new security gave us a rare opportunity to recognize these distinguished individuals whose talent and dedication helped our nation make great strides in knowledge, the arts, civil rights, and world peace,” Rubin

added.

The Series I

Inflation-Indexed

Savings Bonds (I Bonds) offer Americans protection from inflation, insuring investors a real rate of return over and above inflation. The

earnings rate an investor makes on inflation-protected bonds is the combination of two rates: 1) a fixed rate of return announced by the Treasury Department that remains the same for the life of the bond; and 2) a rate of inflation that is adjusted every six months by the Bureau of Labor Statistics to reflect changes in the Consumer Price Index for all Urban Consumers (CPI-U).
