As mentioned earlier, the $2 bill is one of the most diverse denominations of American paper money from a historical standpoint. From the introduction of the United States Note in 1862 with a $2 denomination until 1966 when US Notes were phased out, a $2 bill was available not only in the United States Note Series, but also in other forms of currency such as the Silver Certificate, the National Bank Note, Federal Reserve Bank Note, and the 1890 Treasury Note.
President Thomas Jefferson has long-featured on the obverse of $2 bills in the United States, including on the obverse of these $2 Colorized Legal Tender Notes. In terms of this specific monetary design, President Jefferson’s bust has been on $2 bills as seen here since 1928 when the United States Note was downsized to the modern monetary format. It depicts the third President of the United States of America with colorization added to his figure and the porthole design elements immediately around him.
A replica of an oil painting from 1818 is found in the reverse design of $2 Colorized Legal Tender Notes. This design is based on John Trumbull’s 1818 oil painting depicting the signing of the Declaration of Independence. The leading figures among the Founding Fathers are present in the design, with all figures enhanced through beautiful colorization.
