Change for a Two?
Yes, the two-dollar bill is real. It’s so rare that it’s reached mythic standards for many Americans and some people don’t even think they’re real. People so rarely pay with two dollar bills that cashiers often think they’re fake! Regardless of whether you’re American or not, chances are that you’ve almost never seen a two-dollar bill in the wild.
Two dollar bills were issued by the U.S. government most commonly between 1862 and 1966. They still make these bills today, for some reason, but they don’t produce a lot so they’re not widely in circulation. It’s a rare treat when you run across one of these bills, and some people even collect them.
