Currency and Other Monetary Instrument Seizures

Return to the Public Data Portal

CBP’s border security mission includes seizing undeclared or illicit currency, which can be proceeds from alleged illicit activity or currency that funds transnational criminal organizations. "Money" means monetary instruments and includes U.S. or foreign coins currently in circulation, currency, travelers' checks in any form, money orders, and negotiable instruments or investment securities in bearer form.

Data is extracted from live CBP systems and data sources. Statistical information is subject to change due to corrections, systems changes, change in data definition, additional information, or seizures pending final review. Final statistics are available at the conclusion of each fiscal year.
