Everything You Need To Know About America’s New $10 and $20 Bills
Underwood Archives

On Wednesday, Jacob J. Lew, Treasury Secretary, announced that Harriet Tubman will front the new $20 bill with an image of the White House and Andrew Jackson on the back. It was initially believed that Tubman would just replace Jackson completely, removing the former president from the bill altogether, but that’s not the case. 

It was also believed that Alexander Hamilton would be replaced on the $10 bill, but Hamilton will retain his position on the front of the bill. The Treasury will add leaders from the suffrage movement including Susan B. Anthony and women’s rights activist and abolitionist Sojourner Truth.

The five will get a facelift too with images of Martin Luther King, Jr., Eleanor Roosevelt and Marian Anderson alongside Abraham Lincoln.

The final designs will be unveiled in 2020 and go into circulation in 2030 beginning with the $10 bill.
