Denver Mini Bonds

Denver has issued mini bonds five times since 1990, with the most recent transaction in 2014 during the previous General Obligation Bond Program, Better Denver. The 2014 mini-bond sale totaled $12 million with two separate maturity dates, one in 2023 and the other in 2028. Only Colorado residents could purchase the 2014 mini bonds, sold in denominations of $500. These features allowed individual, local investors the opportunity to benefit from the Better Denver Bond Program. Demand in 2014 was so great that the mini-bonds sold out in under 20 minutes.
