A Woman Will Replace Andrew Jackson On $20 Bill


Treasury Secretary Jack Lew will announce this week that Alexander Hamilton will remain on the $10 bill and Andrew Jackson will be pushed off the $20 note in favor of a woman from American history, The Daily Mail reports.

The announcement will come around a year after an online petition called for Jackson to be replaced with a woman, and ten months after Lew announced he wanted to replace Hamilton instead. Rather than removing Hamilton from the $10 bill, the rear of the note will instead feature a mural depicting women’s suffrage, The Daily Mail adds.

Jackson will be ousted in favor of a woman representing the fight for racial equality, the source said.

The new $20 note won’t be issued until 2030 at the earliest.
