# Your Spare \$2 Bill Could be Worth Close to \$ 5,000. Here’ s What to Look For.

The saying “a penny saved is a penny earned” isn’t always true. While a penny is still worth a penny and adds up with other pennies to help you save money over time, sometimes money is worth way more than it appears at first glance. A great example of that is the \$2 bill.

The cash in our wallet does not usually include any \$2 bills. We mainly carry currency in the amounts of \$20, \$10, \$5, and \$1. Yet, the \$2 bill does exist. In fact, we have a few of them; however, we don’t spend them.

These \$2 bills are often seen as rare and as collectors items. You may have a \$2 bill and consider it to be something to save and not to spend. That’s great, but would you consider selling it?

It turns out that some \$2 bills are actually worth a lot of money. We’re not talking about doubling or tripling in value either. We’re talking about an unassuming \$2 bill being worth up to \$5000. Recently, at some auctions, newer \$2 bills, such as one from 2003, sold for \$2,400. Older \$2 bills can be worth even more. If you happen to have an 1890 \$2 bill that was never in circulation, you’re looking at a value of \$4,500.

Before you go check to see if you have any \$2 bills, you need to know what to look for to find out how much your \$2 bills are worth. If you happen to find one with the date 1890, look for a red seal. If this \$2 bill with the red seal is uncirculated, the value is \$4,500. If the \$2 bill was in circulation, the value ranges between \$300 and \$2500.

If your 1890 \$2 bill doesn’t have a red seal, does it have a brown seal or a blue seal? If it has either of these seals, you won’t get \$1000s, but these bills are still worth 100s of dollars.

Even if you don’t have an 1890 \$2 bill, you could have a \$2 bill that is valuable. Watch the video below to learn more about what to look for and how to find out how valuable your \$2 bill actually is.

While the \$2 bill is not a common dollar bill, it is also not considered rare. In 2017, it was estimated that there were approximately 1.2 billion \$2 bills in circulation in the United States.

Do you have a \$2 bill? Does it surprise you that \$2 bills can be worth \$1000s?
