The Franklin Mint $2 Year of the Dog CU Hologram Bill w/ Display Wallet

The $2 bill is America's first and only commemorative bank note design. It was originally issued as part of the 1976 bicentennial celebration for the 200th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence. The bill is in Crisp Uncirculated condition and remains U.S. legal tender. The hologram is privately applied, since the U.S. government does not have the capacity to create enhanced notes.

Chinese New Year 2018 begins on February 16, 2018. In 2018, the 12 Chinese zodiac signs must show tolerance and empathy towards the people they meet to preserve their karmic balance, especially if they wish to avoid unnecessary conflicts. In 2018, success, in love as in work, depends primarily on the quality of the communication between people, and learning that being selfless and generous can bring the promise of a more generous harvest in return.

The Dog is the eleventh in the 12-year cycle of Chinese zodiac sign. Dog is man's good friend who can understand the human's spirit and obey its master, whether he is wealthy or not. The Chinese regard it as an auspicious animal. If a dog happens to come to a house, it symbolizes the coming of fortune. People born in the Year of the Dog are usually independent, sincere, loyal and decisive.
