The third Monday in February in the U.S. is observed as a legal holiday in honor of President’s Day because it is close to the birthdays of George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. Happy Birthday George and Abe!
AND Happy Presidents’ Day!

George and Abe were memorialized on Mount Rushmore along with 2 other presidents, Theodore Roosevelt and Thomas Jefferson. Thomas Jefferson appears on one of the most unique bills in U.S. History, the $2 bill!

5 Facts You Probably Didn’t Know About $2 Bills!

  1. After years of public indifference to the $2 bill, production was discontinued in 1966, only to be restarted as part of the American Bicentennial celebration in 1976.

  2. As a general rule of thumb, if a $2 bill has a red Treasury seal and red serial numbers, it’s at least a somewhat-valuable collectible.

  3. In 2005, a Baltimore man was arrested and held in custody until Secret Service agents could verify that the 57 $2-bills he used to pay Best Buy for installing a radio-CD player were genuine.

  4. The US Bureau of Engraving and Printing continues to print $2 bills, including 230 million of them in 2006. Even so, $2 bills make up just 1% of all US bills in circulation.

  5. The next time you pay for something using a $2 bill, the odds are the cashier will have to put it under the cash drawer. That’s because most businesses prefer to use the register’s five bill-slots for ones, fives, tens, twenties and checks or coupons.

  6. In 1989, Geneva Steel in Provo, Utah paid their employee bonuses with $2 bills to highlight the importance of the steel mill to the local economy. That fact became obvious after the rare bills began appearing at merchants throughout the surrounding communities.
