Default Coming soon: The new face of the $10 bill

One might think, I got funny money if they were not informed about the soon to be changes to the $5.00, $10.00 & $20.00 bills.

Coming soon: The new face of the $10 bill


Newsweek Taylor Wofford, 23 hrs ago.

It’s almost here.

The new face of the $10 bill will be revealed soon. On Wednesday, Treasury Secretary Jack Lew told reporters he is close to reaching a decision on who will be the first woman featured prominently on U.S. currency.

The decision was supposed to have been made by the end of 2015. But after announcing the proposed change and asking for public input in June, Lew said his department has been overwhelmed by a flood of responses. "We've gotten millions of responses. We're getting close," Lew told PBS's Charlie Rose on Tuesday.

Alexander Hamilton has been the face of the $10 bill since 1929. The redesign of the $10 bill will be the first in a series of redesigns intended to help stop counterfeiting. A popular petition to remove Andrew Jackson from the $20 was not a motivating factor, Lew said at the time of the initial announcement. "We have to value security in our currency. So we're going to have to do this in the order that bills need to be modernized to be safe from counterfeiting," Lew said Tuesday.

As part of the program, the $5 and $20 bills will also see changes, Lew added.

The popular Broadway musical Hamilton has brought the Founding Father to the forefront of American popular culture and sparked protests at the decision to remove the immigrant from the British West Indies from the face of the bill. But, Lew said, Hamilton will not be removed from the bill entirely; he will still appear on its obverse side. "Alexander Hamilton is one of my heroes. He's not leaving our money," Lew said.

Lin Manuel-Miranda, the creator of the musical, told his Twitter followers that Lew personally assured him he would be "very happy" with the redesign.

Since no living person can appear on U.S. currency, popular female candidates to replace Hamilton are Mary Washington, Susan B. Anthony and Harriet Tubman.

What part of "no living person" did you not understand?

You should read Mlurp's full posts as they are enlightening and always factual.

Evidently some people can't recognize a joke...

Given Salty's inability to normal reason and facts, one never knows when she is joking. However, given her well known affection, for the Bush family, there is hardly a doubt as to her motives and intentions about Barbara Bush.

You are welcome to show me evidence to the contrary. Or perhaps just go pee in another sandbox.

Meanwhile my comment is factual and stands.

I voted for Linda Lovelace. She's dead so she's eligible.

For the record, even when people on the right hate Obama it's still possible to recognize somebody on the right making a joke involving Obama.
Do you understand that?

Regardless, I get it.
You don't like saltwn and will continue to attack her at any opportunity.
