Local strip club changes the cash machines over from giving $1 bills to $2 bills.

My one aunt, who used to work in a bank, used to give me money for Christmas and my birthday, in a all $2 bills, this was back in the 80s and early 90s though.
I used to get them just like that from relatives, from way back in the 60s. It was a novelty.

Fascinating that all the Sacajawea $1 coins are down here in Ecuador. Much preferred over the paper bill. Money seems to get worn out quicker down here; all the bills are old.

I don't like those huge coins though, glad I don't see those - I think they are $1.00, could you imagine carrying $10.00 worth of $1.00 coins?
They've been in print through 2019. I don't believe the Federal Reserve is printing any in 2020.

I like the $1 silver certificates. I used to get one once in a while with my change, years ago...

Haven't seen a $2 bill in many years - not sure where you are and why you are seeing them suddenly. Again, I usually use my card for most things so don't pay in cash for much.

What does this have to do worth the tread?

I advocate doing away with $1 and $2 paper bills and replacing them with coins as many countries, including Canada, have done.

I haven't seen one in years. If I were to get one in my change, I would keep it.

I'd rather they get rid of pennies.

I've had a $2 bill folded up and tucked into my wallet for decades.


I used to have a $2 silver note tucked into my wallet but, unfortunately, that was stolen, so I had to replace it with a regular $2.
Well yeah because you would always have $2.
