The two Jefferson’s dollars are very rare, again introduced in 1976 and gradually withdrawn.
Andy Warhol signs and stamps them on July 4th 1976, day of the bicentennial anniversary of the Declaration of independence - 4 July 1776.
The value of the postage stamp was 13 cents, as many as the American states during the union.
The back of the two dollars represents a painting by Trumbull dated early nineteenth century about the American declaration of independence.
Some samples are published on the catalog 'Andy Warhol Vetrine' by Achille Bonito Oliva - Silvana Editoriale
