Does anyone here like the US 2 dollar bills? I know they don't get used as much as the others.

I still like 2 dollar bills, though, and my grandpa used to send me those when I was little.

It's a bit of a shame they're not popular, and are considered novelty legal tender.

I find them to be a bit unecessary, but I do hold in to all the ones I come across.

I had two in my whole lifetime, spent both of them on lunch. It's neat and all. but at the end of the day it's still only 2 dollars.

They are pretty underrated, I wish people use those a little more, though.

I like the ones with Bill Clinton on them. I think they are threes.

Those exist? Two dollar coins are pretty handy I find though, there's tonnes of things that cost between 1 and 2 dollars.

They have 2 dollar coins in Canada. The US 2 dollar bills look like this.

Those ones aren't legal tender, though.

strippers do.

i like how you guys are acting like they're so rare... go to a strip club. most of them dont require you to pay in $2 bills instead of $1s. (they figure they can get more money that way)

A $6 bill would be most effective. I have two $2 bills. I got them a LONG time ago.

I like them quite a lot actually. I also like the slver dollars. People always do a double take wth them because they think you handed them a quarter.

I remember being amazed by them when I was younger. I just assumed they stopped making them since I don't see any anymore. Still... I wish I had one or two to use when stuff costs like stuff in evens (excluding 10 because well.. there is a 10 dollar bill).

I have one in a box somewhere. I was always told as a kid that eventually it would be worth a ton of money. I'm still waiting for that to happen.

I have received some 2 dollar bills as gifts but I have never used one or ever received one in change after I break a large bill.

yeah I had 3 in my life, don't know what happened to them. Over here theye have 2.5 Cent coins and .5 cent coins. not used any more though some places don't accept them cause 250 fils (2.5 piasters) is less than a US nick but more than a Penny so useless now. But back then (70's) you could buy a falafel sandwitch, Juice and some candy with 2.5 cents. Also 10 JD's back in those days you can get close to a 3 pounds worth of Humus for aroud 10 piasters. Today a nickel would hardly get you a single piece of gum. conversion rate: 1 JD= .709 Dollars. What a shame

I havent seen a two dollar bill ever being used. I've seen vending machines were you need to pay two dollars for a soda but dont accept two dollar bills.

My grandma has a few two dollar bills.

Well, technically she's my great aunt and she's not very mobile, so not only would I be disturbed by people paying to see a stripper that old, I would be concerned for her health.

I seriously haven't seen a $2 bill since I was in like the 2nd grade. Given how rare they seem to be, I think $2 bills ought to be worth a lot more than $2.

They should use them more, and $1 bills less. Also, they need to abolish the penny... it's useless and exists for no reason other than taxes. They need to just re-adjust the system so everything ends in(or rounds up/down to) $x.x0 or $x.x5... if everything ends in 0 or 5, then we can make the nickel the "new penny" and get rid of the useless penny we have now. I seriously treat pennies like they're bugs or something... they're annoying as hell and not even worth carrying around in your pocket. I decline them any time I'm offered them as change.

I used 5 or 10 pennies with the others for lunch money at school a few times before.
