Woman to Replace Hamilton on $10 Bill


ten dollar billThe U.S. Treasury announced on Wednesday that beginning in 2020, a woman’s face will replace Alexander Hamilton on the $10 bill.

Treasury Secretary Jack Lew said he’s looking for public input on which female historical figure should become the first to appear on U.S. paper currency for the first time in 119 years.

Hamilton will remain either on the bill’s reverse side or in a separate series while the 1.9 billion $10 bills in circulation are likely to last another 10 years.

No woman has appeared on a new currency since Martha Washington on a $1 silver note until 1896. Pocahontas was the first female, appearing on the $20 note beginning in 1865. Read more at USA Today.

  1. They are replacing the wrong figure. Hamilton was the visionary whose ideas led to America becoming the great industrial nation it later became. He also was one of the earliest public figures to call for the abolition of slavery.

    They should have bounced Andrew Jackson from the $20 bill. Jackson’s opposition to any form of central bank led to huge amounts of economic misery, he was an unapologetic slaveowner, and he fomented a campaign of outright genocide against American Indians.

  3. They are waiting until 2020 in anticipation of Hillary’s win in 2016, so that they can put her likeness on the bill.


    Why is the entire world going down? For the past thousands of years there was always avoda zara in the world-from the molech to the baal to the asheira tree etc…-todays avoda zara is MONEY, we are a servant to money, we serve money, we let money talk & rule us. Thus we leave Hashem no choice but to take it away from us Rachmana L’tzlan. But if a person can use his money the right way & remember that it all comes from Hashem & it was just loaned to him, then he is the perfect person to continue holding Hashem’s money.

    May we all start to remember that everything belongs to Hashem ALONE & may we turn straight to Hashem for help when we need it
