    Interesting wrinkle to this is that the popularity of the Hamilton Musical probably kept him on the $10 and pushed Jackson off the $20

    Treasury Secretary Jack Lew on Wednesday will announce a decision to keep Alexander Hamilton on the front of the $10 bill and put leaders of the movement to give women the right to vote on the back of the bill, sources tell POLITICO.

    Treasury will also announce that it plans to replace former President Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill with Harriet Tubman, the sources said. There will also be changes to the $5 bill to depict civil rights era leaders.

    Story Continued Below


    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 Lew 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.

    Lew told POLITICO last July that Treasury was exploring ways to respond to critics. “There are a number of options of how we can resolve this,” Lew said. “We’re not taking Alexander Hamilton off our currency.”

    That and the fact that replacing Jackson, who was a piece of shit, was the common plea when the conversation first started.

    Im sure this will cause much rage in the south. Fortunately most folks down there rarely deal with anything larger than a $5 bill.

    rock and a hard place imo. stupid to take Jackson off the $20 bill for no real reason but I also have no issue with the desire to diversify who we honor on our currency. We aren't making any new denominations any time soon, so this will have to do

    he gets his own holiday. Not saying that makes him ineligible for the 20, but having Harriet on the 20 and MLK with his holiday diversifies celebrating black culture

    Yeah I was telling a coworker that it probably has something to do with them just spending a ton of money putting the new design in circulation. No idea if that is accurate, but it kinda makes sense.
