The obverse of 1899 $2 Silver Certificate Notes comes with a portrait of President George Washington. His effigy is flanked on either side by the allegories of agriculture and mechanics, which are represented by a male and female figure. President Washington has appeared on countless forms of US paper money. He first appeared on the $1 denomination in 1869. This note marks his only appearance on a $2 denomination.


On the reverse of 1899 $2 Silver Certificates is a simple, yet ornate design field with the note series, nation of issue, and denomination marked. You will find Silver Certificate printed three times on this side, with United States of America as the notation for the nation of issue. The number 2 appears in all four corners.


Silver Certificates bear the signatures of the Register of the Treasury and the Treasurer of the United States on the obverse. This 1899 Series for the $2 Silver Certificate was the last redesign and the notes were canceled in 1928 when the small-sized notes were introduced. No $2 note appeared in that latter series. As such, the 1899 $2 Silver Certificate was printed until 1927 and features 10 different possible signature combinations.
