Harriet Tubman Will Be on the New $20 Bill – Is That a Good Thing?

The Treasury Department announced last week that some changes are coming to the individuals featured on the $20 and $5 bills. Do you agree with the decision to change the currency?

The Treasury Department announced last week that the $20 bill is being redesigned to substitute a photograph of Harriet Tubman in lieu of Andrew Jackson.

Another change will also be taking place for the $5 bill; Martin Luther King, Eleanor Roosevelt and Marian Anderson will now be featured on the back of the bill, however, Abraham Lincoln will still be on the front.

Are these good changes? Should the currency have been changed at all, and if so, do you agree with the individuals ultimately chosen for featuring on the new bills?

The survey is now closed. You can see the results in this article: FedSmith.com Users Overwhelmingly Disagree with $20 Bill Redesign.

Our thanks to those of you for taking the time to participate and share your feedback.
