Thomas Jefferson Pop Art warhol style - $2 bill detail.
The United States two-dollar bill ($2) is a current denomination of U.S. currency.
The third U.S. President (1801- 09), Thomas Jefferson, is featured on the obverse of the note.
Monticello was the primary plantation of Thomas Jefferson, the third President of the United States,
who began designing and building Monticello at age 26 after inheriting land from his father.
Located just outside Charlottesville, Virginia, in the Piedmont region, the plantation was originally 5,000 acres (20 km2),
with Jefferson using slaves for extensive cultivation of tobacco and mixed crops, later shifting from tobacco cultivation to wheat in response to changing markets.
Ten years went by before the $2 bill was reissued as a Federal Reserve Note with a new reverse design. $2 bills
are seldom seen in circulation as a result of banking policies with businesses which has resulted in low production numbers due to lack of demand.
This comparative scarcity in circulation, coupled with a lack of public awareness that the bill is still in circulation,
has also inspired urban legends and occasionally has created problems for people trying to use the bill to make purchases.
