Hang Onto That 2 Dollar Bill

Aug 17, 2007
Today, when we go to a store many of us pay for our commodity by hard currency or cash, if we don't have our credit cards with us. We are very intimate with the different money values that we see regularly. Or at least have a good idea of what they look like and there value. However, there is one type of money bill that is seen very rarely. This is the 2 dollar bill and because it is barely ever used or seen there are many stories that have developed about this bill. And to think that my kids haven't even seen a 2 dollar bill.

These urban legends or folktales have all inspired the myth that the 2 dollar bill is not what you would conceive as being real money. Boy, is that the furthest from the truth. In fact the 2 dollar bill is now starting to be seen as a collectors item. For this rationality when people see a 2 dollar bill they will either regard it as being a fake or they will decide that it is so uncommon that they need to own this bill. Hence how it has become a collectors item.

Even though you will not see the 2 dollar bill all that much, there are some of these bills still in circulation today. Due to the collection of the 2 dollar bill the public has now started to see it fade from public sight. It is only when there is a severe deficiency of this bill that the Fed Money Reserve will start printing a new batch. What an interesting concept, hey folks we are out of this type of bill we better go and print a few more off. It isn't really that simple, but the Federal Reserve does watch and regulate the money flow including 2 dollar bills.

How this works is that because there are not many people using these dollar bills there is no real need to print out a large sum of them. As this is the case the sum of 2 dollar bills that you can find are regarded as being used by by a very small population. The less times the Feds print the 2 dollar bill, the more valuable it becomes. The printing of this bill has seen a serious decrease over the last 10 to 20 years. This means a higher value for those of you that are interested in collecting this bill.

Since the 2 dollar bill is not thought of as being part of the monetary system there are few facilities or shops and other places to take the 2 dollar bill. but, I tell you now, hang onto that bill and put it into your collection. Alternatively you will find that various other items have been located in the sections where the 2 dollar bill inevitably use to go. There is another problem that you may run into when you try to use a 2 dollar bill. As so very few people have heard of a 2 dollar bill much less seen one, they may think that you are trying to play some type of game with them.

There are still others who may feel that you are spending fake money. Therefore if you do come over a 2 dollar bill you might want to hang on to it until you can switch it at the bank where they will not look at you funnily! Or better yet hang onto it and add it to your ever growing coin collection. this bill one day will no longer be printed by the feds (if it hasn't already stopped) and will grow in value.
