On April 13, 1976 the $2 bill was re-introduced in honor of the nation’s Bicentennial. Here are some interesting facts about that rather unusual bill:
- $2 bills make up only 1% of all U.S. bills currently in circulation
- Some folks believe that $2 bills are unlucky and to counteract bad fortune they’ll tear a corner off the bill. That’s why you see so many $2 bills missing a corner (or two)
- The first $2 bill was printed in 1862. And, like most other bills of the time, it was quite large, measuring about 7.42″x 3.13″
- Over 2.8 million $2 bills are entered on the currency tracking site Where’s George?
