The New $20 Bill

Harriet Tubman, the leading abolitionist and suffragist, will replace former President Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill. The new design is expected to be made public in 2020, just in time for the centennial of women’s suffrage and the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, which guaranteed all American women the right to vote. Alexander Hamilton will remain on the $10 bill, thanks to Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda and the legions of Hamilton fans. Instead, images of women are expected to grace the back of the new $10 bill. More women and civil rights leaders are also expected to be part of the new currency designs, which may not reach circulation for another decade. The Treasury Department is expected to make an announcement this afternoon.
