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?
