The e series savings bond mature to full value after 19 years. That may have changed however I do not believe so. Instead of buying my kids a lot of toys for Christmas and their birthdays I had the releatives purchase savings bonds throughout the years. Our oldest son has about $6000 dollars worth and the others have a good amout as well. This will be helpful down the line for them and I did not have to clean up and throw away a lot of cheap toys that my kids did not need.
When you buy a savings bond they are 1/2 price until they mature. So when the $75 bond was purchased it only cost the purchaser $37.50 You can take your savings bond to your bank and ask them how much it is worth now.
