Harriet Tubman on $20

Harriet Tubman will replace former President Andrew Jackson on the $20. Alexander Hamilton will remain on the front of the $10, but leaders of the women’s suffrage movement will be on the back.

Lew’s decision comes after he announced last summer that he was considering replacing Hamilton on the $10 bill with a woman. The announcement drew swift rebukes from fans of Hamilton, who helped create the Treasury Department and the modern American financial system. Critics immediately suggested Hamilton take Jackson off the $20 bill given the former president’s role in moving native Americans off their land. Jackson may remain on the $20 bill in some capacity, possibly on the back. So, did President Obama vote on this? Or maybe the Treasury is getting ready for President Hillary Clinton.

The new $10 bills are set to enter circulation in 2020, while we won’t see the $20 until 2030.
