The common perception regarding the signing of the Declaration of Independence is that the Founding Fathers who signed the document did so on July 4, 1776. While that is a popular cultural belief, most scholars believe the timeline was a bit different back in 1776. What is known for sure is the timing of the document’s authorization and the declaration of its intent.
The Second Continental Congress voted to approve acceptance of the Declaration of Independence on July 2, 1776. Two days later, on what is now America’s Independence Day, the Declaration of Independence’s adoption by the Second Continental Congress was announced to the American people. Scholars believe that the Founding Fathers later signed the Declaration itself on or around August 2, 1776.
The obverse side of the $2 Colorized Fourth of July Legal Tender Note comes with a depiction of President Thomas Jefferson, one of the signatories of the Declaration of Independence and its crafter. President Jefferson’s portrait has featured on $2 bills in this portrait since 1928 when it was adopted on the redesigned, small-sized United States Note. It has been on the modern Federal Reserve Note since 1976 when the $2 denomination was issued. This face of the bill has been enhanced with red-white-and-blue colorizations bringing in the elements of the US flag. The Statue of Liberty is also present on this side of the note.
On the reverse field of $2 Colorized Fourth of July Legal Tender Notes is a replica of John Trumbull’s 1818 oil painting. This design captures the moment the Founding Fathers gathered to read and sign the Declaration of Independence, formalizing the nation’s intent to separate from the United Kingdom to form a single nation, free and independent.
These $2 Colorized Fourth of July Legal Tender Notes are available with brilliant, enhanced colorizations on both faces of the note.
