In 2020, the U.S. Treasury Department will release a new version of the $10 bill. This new version will feature the face of a woman. According to this article on CNN’s website, the last time a woman’s face was on U.S. currency was 1896 with Martha Washington on the $1 Silver Certificate. The $10 bill has not changed since 1929, when Alexander Hamilton replaced Andrew Jackson. It is reported that Hamilton’s face will not disappear entirely, but that designers are working on the best way to include him on the note. The article also mentions that U.S. Treasury Secretary Jack Lew will be turning to the people of the country to help decide which woman should appear on the bill. He is open to suggestions from social media. The only restriction listed so far is that the person must be deceased; this is according to U.S. law. Additionally, the article states that the new note will be printed with a “tactile feature” that will make the bill distinguishable from other ones for people who are blind. Get on your favorite form of social media today to share your opinions for the new $10 bill!
