Created as a result of the Banking Act of 1933, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) attempted to renew confidence in Depression-era banks by insuring money deposited in these banks, up to $5,000 per account. By 1984, that figure has risen to $100,000 per account. U.S. #2071 commemorates the F.D.I.C.’s 50th anniversary.
