Redesigned U.S. $10 bill to feature woman historical figure and new tactility
- The currency redesign will be the first to include a female figure on a major U.S. bill denomination.
- The Treasury Secretary has called on the public to offer its opinions on who should grace the bill using the hashtag #TheNew10, with the only stipulations being that the figure not be alive and should represent American democracy.
- The redesigned bill will debut in 2020 and will also be the first to include tactile features so as to be distinguishable to blind people.
“We have only made changes to the faces on our currency a few times since bills were first put into circulation, and I’m proud that the new 10 will be the first bill in more than a century to feature the portrait of a woman.”
