250th Anniversary of the Boston Tea Party Colorized $2 Bill
A special release honoring American Independence!
In 2023 our country celebrates the 250th Anniversary of the Boston Tea Party, one of the most pivotal events in the birth of our nation. In the years preceding American independence, England needed money to finance its occupying force of soldiers in the American colonies, and decided to get it by taxing the colonists without consent or representation. Patriots rose in opposition – among them Paul Revere, John Hancock, and Samuel Adams. On December 16, 1773, they boarded British ships, and dumped 92,000 pounds of heavily taxed British tea into Boston Harbor. The seeds of a revolution had been planted.
Now, National Collector’s Mint is releasing its 250th Anniversary Boston Tea Party Full Color $2 Bill. Front and center on each bill is a magnificent color rendering of the Boston Tea Party. The 250th Anniversary designation appears on the left, and the cause of the revolutionary act is on the right: No Taxation Without Representation. Even the chant “Dump the tea, in the sea!” said to be called out by the Sons of Liberty, is featured with the double date of 1773-2023. Each legal tender two-dollar bill is taken from wrapped Federal Reserve sealed packs, then enhanced by us using a state-of-the-art
colorization process. Order yours now!
