Cash Will Always Be King

Independence has its price. John Trumbull, who has been called "The Painter of the Revolution" is the Artist behind the engraving of those who were present at the signing of the Declaration of Independence. This famous image, seen here, appears on one side of the American Two Dollar Bill. Though the American experience is now to use credit cards for almost every purchase, to have and to hold a small part of history, that many may never see nor even know of its existence, is, when in one's wallet, a denomination garnering the highest respect for those who helped shape and build this great country.
