Woman’s Face to Be On New $10 Bill

Which American woman should appear on the new $10 bill?

Move over, Alexander Hamilton because the new $10 bills will feature a woman!

The US Department of Treasury announced yesterday that a female will join Hamilton on the face of the $10 bill in 2020. The change is to celebrate the 100 year anniversary of women’s suffrage. There are no leaks on who it will actually be, but the internet has been taken over by serious and also hilarious suggestions.

The move to put a female American hero also created a stir because she was originally supposed to replace Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill. It’s not a slight against women, but a calculated move to prevent counterfeit money being produced.

Alexander Hamilton was one of the founding fathers of the United States, the founder of the nation’s financial system, and Secretary of the Treasury under George Washington. We hope he enjoys his new roommate!
