Public release of $2 bill at face value continues: time is running out for public to get them
(SYNDICATED)–Hoards of people are jamming National Hotline phones to get $2 bills for face value.
Some collectors are trying to snatch up all they can.
The crisp, uncirculated $2 bills are being banded in packs of five and sent directly to their homes.
If parents and grandparents living in 1928 would have kept a pack of five uncirculated $2 bills they could be worth $2,250.00 today. That’s why people want them so badly.
“Our private vault reserves will soon be gone. Those who want to get them should call now,” said John Thomas White, Executive Director of the United States Monetary Exchange.
Originally issued in 1928, the Two Dollar Bill has largely been locked away in dark U.S. Federal Reserve vaults, rarely distributed by banks and almost never seen in circulation.
That’s why it is extremely rare to actually find one of these historic Two Dollar Bills in your pocket change these days.
“When our stockpile is gone collectors will have to sort through money from the bank to get them,” he said.
“The $100, $50, $20, $10 and $5 dollar bills have all recently undergone major new design changes. Now, it’s feared that new legislation may be introduced to discontinue the historic designs of these Two Dollar bills. That’s why we have authorized the release of a limited number of the uncirculated $2 Bills from our vault reserve to the general public,” White said.
The $2 Bills are highly sought after and extremely popular to give as gifts for friends and family. They are the perfect gift for any occasion,” he said.
Many younger people have never even seen one of these historically significant $2 bills that feature President Thomas Jefferson on the front. A historic engraving of the signing of the Declaration of Independence is on the back.
These $2 bills are closely controlled by the Treasury Department’s Bureau of Engraving and Printing, makers of the nations paper currency.
The $2 bill makes up less than 1% of the $670 billion in genuine U.S. currency that circulates worldwide, according to the U.S. Department of Treasury under Secretary John W. Snow.
Dealers must submit requests in writing for 10 or more banded packs of 5 bills. But, the general public getting less than 10 packs can call the National Direct Hotline now at 1-800-242-8038 and ask for Dept. DB816. Limits will be strictly enforced, White said.
