Harriet Tubman to Replace Jackson on the $20 Bill
Last June, public input was courted by the US Department of Treasury to determine who would replace Alexander Hamilton on the $10 bill. After some prestigious and historical names like Rosa Parks, Sally Ride, and Susan B. Anthony were suggested, the Treasury department landed on Abolitionist leader Harriet Tubman for the honor. But women's groups and Hamilton fans weren't happy with booting the original Treasury secretary from one of the least circulated bills, so they decided to feature her on the redesigned $20 bill, replacing 7th President, and noted paper currency opposer, Andrew Jackson. Jackson will be moving to the back of the $20 bill. The Department of Treasury issued this press release concerning the change.
This is all part of a complete redesign of US currency to make them more difficult to counterfeit, and to make them more easily discernible for blind people. The $10 bill will be the first to be redesigned, and will be unveiled in 2020. No date set for the unveiling of the new $20.
I think they need to get Neil Armstrong on a bill, probably the the $50.
