The $2 bill is a very rare Federal Reserve Note that is worth two dollars, or 200 cents. On July 10, 1929, the $2 bill started off always as a United States Note with a red Treasury seal. It remained that way until 1965, when the red seal notes were discontinued, along with the $2 bill as a whole for almost 11 years. It was reintroduced as a Federal Reserve Note on April 13, 1976 as a Series 1976, in honor of the Declaration of Independence's 200th anniversary.

This rarely seen bill features a portrait of Thomas Jefferson on the front, and the signing of the Declaration of Independence on the back.
