Select $2 bills could be worth thousands of dollars, according to U.S. Currency Auctions.

The auction site reports that some versions of the $2 bill are valued at nearly $5,000, depending on factors such as how and where they were printed.

In general, the site states that uncirculated $2 bills with red seals can sell for $300 to $2,500, while those with brown or blue seals may be able to gather hundreds.

Meanwhile, uncirculated $2 bills specifically from 1890 with a brown or red seal can sell for up to $4,500.

Newer bills from 2003 forward, however, don't see an increase in value, per U.S. Currency Auctions.

The $2 bill, which has been in circulation since 1862, has featured six different designs over the years, according to the U.S. Department of Treasury.

The front of the $2 bill currently features the face of Thomas Jefferson, while the back shows the Declaration of Independence being signed.

According to USA Today, the U.S. Treasury once wanted to popularize the bill in the early 20th century, but it did not work out and the government stopped issuing new $2 bills as a result.

They were later reintroduced in 1976, however, as the United States approached its bicentennial, the Department of Treasury said.

Last year, $2 bills in circulation amounted to $1.5 billion, a tiny amount of the $54.1 billion currency circulated over the year, the Federal Reserve reported, per USA Today.
