So long, Alexander Hamilton; a woman to be main feature on $10 bill

2 posts in this topic

WASHINGTON, June 17 (UPI) -- A woman will be featured on U.S. paper currency for the first time in more than a century, U.S. Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew announced Wednesday.

Starting in 2020 -- the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment giving women the right to vote -- a historic female figure will grace the $10 bill.

 

Lew announced Alexander Hamilton, the founder of the nation's financial system and first Treasury secretary, will be joined on the bill by a woman who is seen as a "champion for our inclusive democracy," a news release from the department said. The subject of the newly redesigned $10 has yet to be announced.
