Hamilton Saved on the $10!

Today, Treasury Secretary Jack Lew made a much anticipated announcement about the future of the $10 and $20 bills.  He stated: “The front of the new $10 will continue to feature Alexander Hamilton, our nation’s first Treasury Secretary and the architect of our economic system.”  The back of the bill will now “honor the story and the heroes of the women’s suffrage movement against the backdrop of the Treasury building.” Harriet Tubman will replace Andrew Jackson as the new face of the $20 bill.

The full text of Secretary Lew’s open letter is available via Medium.
