Ah, the $2 bill.\u00a0 Believed to be rare. A collector's item. And most definitely different from all the cash you see on a regular basis. Yet it turns out that the $2 bill is actually being encouraged to be spent. With all of the latest inflation and a price rise on pretty much everything, grand totals everywhere money is accepted are coming out at a dollar and some change most of the time. People with cash and no change are using singles if they have enough of them or are breaking larger bills like $5, $10 or $20 to pay the total.\u00a0 In a recent article by CNN Business, it's pointed out that dollar stores aren't really "dollar" stores anymore, and simple things like a hot dog at the concession stand at your child's little league game require George Washington both in cash and coins. It may not cross many people's minds, but questioning if there was such a bill to cover something a little more than a dollar but less than $5, is legit. And there is. That $2 bill your distant relative sent you every Easter.\u00a0 Heather McCabe, who operates a $2 bill blog told CNN the $2 bill is "useful" for small purchases, and she points out on her website that the $2 bill has a little bit of magic to it in the form of conversation.\u00a0 "Two things typically happen when I spend a $2 bill," McCabe writes on her website. "A stranger who receives the bill reacts with surprise and happiness, and then the stranger shares a personal story about a $2 bill. I almost never start the conversation \u2014 the stranger starts it. Many people who are into $2 bills save them, but I spend them. I get them from banks in a bundled wad and circulate them with the hope that they\u2019ll keep moving from hand to hand, not wind up forgotten in a shoe box under someone\u2019s bed." According to Thought Co., the $2 bill originally featured Alexander Hamilton when it first came out in 1862, but Hamilton was destined for greater currency and in 1869 was replaced on the $2 bill by his rival Thomas Jefferson. Hamilton, since 1929, has taken his place on the more common $10 bill.\u00a0 Fun Fact: Hamilton and Benjamin Franklin are the only two people featured on current American paper currency that never served as President of the United States.\u00a0 And if you think it all comes to and end with Franklin and the $100 bill, think again. Bills went all the way up to $100,000 at one time, but between the 1940s and 1960s, they were discontinued.\u00a0 President William McKinley, one of four presidents to be assassinated, was on the $500 bill and Grover Cleveland appeared on the $1,000 bill. Founding Father and President James Madison made his way to the $5,000 bill while Salmon P. Chase (Abraham Lincoln's Secretary of the Treasury and later Chief Justice) graced the $10,000 bill. There was a $100,000 bill too, but according to Thought Co., it was only legal to use for federal purchases \u2014 mostly by the Federal Reserve Banks. That particular bill boasted the image of Woodrow Wilson.
