Large format silver certificates debuted in 1878 and continued on through the 1923 Series. In 1928, all large-size notes were replaced by the familiar small format that is still used today. The $2 denomination was not printed until 1886 following the Act of August 4th. Three different designs were used in 1886, 1891, and 1896 before George Washington made his $2 silver certificate debut in 1899. This was also the final series of $2 Silver Certificates.
