Who first came up with the idea of printing additional graphics on U.S currency in order to create a collectible commemorative? Today’s example uses the U.S $2 bill to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the attacks on September 11, 2001, and features images of the twin towers of the World Trade Center as well as the new Freedom Tower which will be stand in their place. The WTC $2 bill joins the ranks of other customized currency collectibles, including National Parks $2 Bills and Elvis $2 Bill. And even if your decorated legal tender never becomes a valuable collector’s item, at least it’s always worth $2. You can buy the WTC $2 Bill here.
Who would you like to see featured on a $2 bill? I vote for Billy Mays.
