History: The 1896 $2 silver certificate “educational” notes are considered the more popular and sought-after type of two dollar bill. Generally speaking all old $2 silver certificates from any date can be purchased at a reasonable price due to millions that were printed. Two dollar silvers from 1896 have a higher market price and demand due to their beautiful design and popularity among novice and experienced collectors. Collectors refer to this note as a one year type design. This means if you want this note, you must buy from the year 1896. We wrote a price guide for the one dollar educational and five dollar educational bill from 1896. They have similar designs but each depicts something very different.
