From 1878 to 1957, the United States produced Silver Certificates as a form of acceptable paper money. These certificates were printed between those dates and accepted in circulation through 1964. The Silver Certificate went through two stages of production during its history, with large-sized certificates issued early on and small-sized certificates during the 20th century.

The United States issued Silver Certificates in a variety of denominations that ranged from the familiar $10, $20, and $50 denominations we are accustomed to seeing in circulation today, to more unique denominations that included $2, $500, and $1,000 certificates. Among these Silver Certificates, the three most famous denominations were the $1, $2, and $5 (USD) certificates.
There are various reasons for the popularity of the aforementioned denominations, ranging from the frequency of release to the frequency of redesigns in those values. However, it was the Educational Series of Silver Certificates issued in 1896 that created a lasting impression for these denominations. To this day, the $1, $2, and $5 1896 Silver Certificates are considered by most to be the three most-beautiful currency designs in American history.
The obverse side of $2 Educational Legal Tender Notes depicts the allegory of Science. In this design from 1896, the personification of Science is a mature female introducing two young allegories, steam and electricity, to other mature allegories representing Commerce and Manufacture.
On the reverse field of the $2 Educational Legal Tender Notes is a painting that captures the moment the Declaration of Independence was formally signed by the Founding Fathers. This setting was captured in a brilliant painting from John Trumbull in 1818 and has been the face of the modern Federal Reserve Note $2 bill since it was introduced in 1976.
These $2 Educational Legal Tender Notes are available to you uncirculated in clean, crisp condition.
