The New Face Of U.S. Currency





  • Harriet Tubman, the 19th-century African-American civil rights activist, will replace Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill.
  • Women will also be placed on the $10 bill as well as replacing the back drawing of the Treasury building with a mural style depiction of the suffrage movement.
  • However, Hamilton will stay in production on the $10 bill as well.

Treasury Secretary Jack Lew will announce that 19th-century African-American civil rights activist Harriet Tubman will replace Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill, a Treasury official said Wednesday.

The announcement will come after Secretary Lew suggested over the weekend that potential modifications were on the way.

CNN reported Monday that Lew had decided to keep Alexander Hamilton on the $10 bill, and instead replace the seventh president’s portrait on the $20 bill with a woman who represents the struggle for racial equality.

Treasury officials declined to comment on the CNN report at the time.

Tubman was an abolitionist, humanitarian and Union spy during the American Civil War. Following Lew’s announcement, she will become the first woman on U.S. paper currency in 100 years.

Other women will also be honored on the $10 bill, the currency next up to for redesign, with a mural-style depiction of the suffrage movement that will replace the current drawing of the Treasury building.

Lew is also expected to confirm Wednesday that Hamilton is here to stay, a decision many have attributed to the grand success of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Broadway hit, “Hamilton,” which recently won a Pulitzer prize.

Lew announced last summer that the government was going to incorporate a woman on the $10 bill, which would mark the first appearance of a female portrait on U.S. paper currency in 100 years.

Treasury received more than 1.5 million responses to Lew’s request for suggestions on the currency redesign. That prompted him to delay an announcement, which he had originally said would be made by the end of 2015.

In a poll conducted last year by the online group, Women on 20s, Tubman, one of the leaders of the Underground Railroad, was the top choice.

Lew’s initial announcement last year set off a firestorm of protests from supporters of Hamilton. They argued that the founding father had molded the nation’s financial architecture and should not be removed from his rightful place on the currency.

Hamilton fans got a boost from the interest generated by the hit Broadway musical. Earlier this year, Lew was personally lobbied by Miranda, the show’s author, and star, during a meeting at Treasury. After their discussion, Miranda tweeted that Lew had assured him “you’re going to be very happy” with the decision.

If a majority of the people selected Harriet Tubman, I’m okay with it, disregarding the financial aspect of it. Otherwise, we should be focusing on more important matters. Our country is in big trouble, both financially and socially, not to mention morally.

    This is just one more excuse for the Treasury Dept to put more currency in circulation. It accomplishes two things: it appeases a segment of primarily Democratic voters & it further weakens the value of the dollar as they have no plans to remove the current bills, just flood the market with more dollars which leads to more inflation. When the financial bubble bursts at least there will be plenty of fuel for fires to cook on & keep warm in the winter. That will be all they will be good for.

    As someone stated earlier, Jackson opposed the Central banking system. He defined them as nothing but a bunch of Crooks. At the present state of our debt/economy he was correct. He actually pushed them out of the country.
    The world bankers at the time hired a assassin to kill Jackson but both Guns misfired. And they openly admitted to making the arrangement.
    So they finally complete their assassination. Jefferson was also opposed to the Central Banking System.

If for no other reason it is a lesson in history for those that are interested.

    Too many things are being changed in this country as it is if something should be left alone not that I disagree based off of race or the fact that the new face of the $20 bill would be female that has nothing to do with it the fact alone that some things shouldn’t be changed because it would cause too many other problems outside of the us as well as inside of the u.s. I believe that it would show everybody around the world that we have the tendency to change something just because we want to change it and that’s not right that shows weakness in the part of the US government and that is my opinion

    If WE the people cannot keep the bills we already have. I would rather “vote” on a few choices on what appears on the new bills. Why do we have to have a picture of an individual? Instead of issuing a bill with someones face on the “bill”; and who the majority of the Nation has never heard of & most of our school children have never been taught about the individuals contribution to our Nation, if any. At least the pictures on our current bills have past Presidents on them. Place a picture of the “Treasury” Buildings &/or maybe past “White House” buildings on these new bills. After all, at least the Treasury buildings are where the paper money comes from. I am so fed up with our government & political leaders assuming everyone thinks we want an individual face on our paper money.

    I always disagree about removing a person from a position of honor or changing the name of a venue (like Atlanta’s Hartsfield Airport) for the purpose of honoring another person. FIND ANOTHER WAY/PLACE TO HONOR HARRET TUBMAN. Make a stamp or build a huge statue at her home state capitol. But do not remove Andrew Jackson from his place on the $20 bill. It is wrong to remove one person and replace with another.

    Jackson, although a man of his times and of many faults, caused a watershed event in our history because of his heroism in war of 1812. His opposition to the central bankers was prophetic and heroic, nearly being assassinated because of that. Besides women on money hasn’t worked well.

    Any Republican who carries a gun is preferential to a democrat every day of the week and twice on Sunday.

    The change on the $ 20 bill shows complete and total disrespect to one of our US Presidents, Andrew Jackson !

    Additionally, the picture of her does not seem to compliment her image and she looks as though she is Mad at the World.

    On the back side, not a bad idea.
    Or better yet make a new Twenty Five Dollar Bill, with her on the front side.

    There has been no ground-swell of requests; consequently, there exists no rational reason to change our currency. Doing so now sets a precedent that will lead to more often changes, albeit at the whim of the Secretary of the Treasury. We send representatives to Congress to decide these things for us, not political appointees. While I disagree, I will defend unto death your right to voice your opinion — but not to impose it upon me.

    I believe changing the faces on the paper money is a complete waste of time and money. The government should be ashamed wasting the money it will take to follow through on such an asinine project when that money could go toward housing the homeless or feeding the hungry. This is nothing more than rampant political correctness and sadly it is killing our county!
