On the obverse of 1862 Legal Tender Notes, there is a bust of Alexander Hamilton. An influential politician and financier, Hamilton helped establish the systems of government and banking that are still relied upon to this day. Unlike modern depictions of Hamilton on paper currency, here he is shown in full profile facing right. Also included on the obverse is the Treasury seal in red ink. The remaining colors on the obverse are mostly black or green.


For the reverse of these Legal Tender Notes, youll see denomination details and obligation language. The denomination is depicted numerically both in the corners and in circles at the notes center. These circles surround lines of text expressing these notes as official legal tender. Thick decorative lines are also featured running horizontally through the note, which enhances the aesthetic beauty of the overall design.


These $2 notes featuring Hamilton are the first of their kind in the legal tender currency program. The next three $2 large format series were issued in 1869, 1875, and 1880. All three of these designs featured Thomas Jefferson. When the program switched to the smaller format in 1928, the $2 denomination was retained with Jefferson once again gracing the front. These small-format designs were issued through Series 1953 and bear much resemblance to the $2 bill that is currently in use today.
