  1. I have always liked the $2 bills. I try to buy them whenever I find them and keep them for a rainy day. But i do like the half dollars also and wish they would be more widely used. Also I think they should bring back a $500 bill.

  2. Great video!! I love the Two’s! I’ve made some people happy to spend the twos. Yesterday, I paid some snacks with twos and a lady wanted to buy the $8.00 of twos.. I still carry $50.00 worth of crisp new twos! A bank in Waxahachie had $200 in twos!! I don’t like or spend half dollars is, no local vending machines accept them! Even in my area, I can’t use twos on vending machines either. 🥺😳😥😭😢☹️ That’s ok! I’m spending two’s as fast as I can get more! Shabbat Shalom y’all!! I still have the vintage 2013 two’s! Wish there was an APP to find two dollar bills! But that would take the fun out of it! 🤣🤪👍🖖❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

  3. I like both the $2 bills and the half dollar coins. I try to spend them whenever I can as an ambassador of both denominations, but I'm rarely going out nowadays thanks to school. I won't give up though.

  4. I love both of these! I've been collecting them both when I can. Thanks for another great video. 🙂
