Treasury’s Lew to announce Hamilton to stay on $10 bill


Treasury Secretary Jack Lew on Wednesday will announce a decision to keep Alexander Hamilton on the front of the $10 bill and put leaders of the movement to give women the right to vote on the back of the bill, sources tell POLITICO.

Treasury will also announce that it plans to replace former President Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill with Harriet Tubman, the sources said. There will also be changes to the $5 bill to depict civil rights era leaders.

The announcement will come after Lew’s decision to replace Hamilton, the first Treasury Secretary and a pop-culture icon following the Broadway musical that bears his name, with a woman on the front of the ten met with major resistance.

Lew told POLITICO last July that Treasury was exploring ways to respond to critics. “There are a number of options of how we can resolve this,” Lew said. “We’re not taking Alexander Hamilton off our currency.”


It’s increasingly less common to carry cash these days, but we’d happily stuff our pockets with five dollar bills instead of using cards if they had Bill Murray’s face on them.

Watch as Los Angeles-based artist Matt Anderson, aka Ginozko, uses white and black charcoal to transform Abraham Lincoln’s famous portrait on the five dollar bill into a particularly distinguished portrait of Bill Murray:
