The New $10 Bill

The Treasury announced that it will redesign the $10 bill by 2020 and it will have a portrait of a woman on it.

The next generation of currency will revolve around the theme of democracy. The first note, the new $10, will feature a notable woman. In keeping with that theme, it’s important that you make your voice heard. Use #TheNew10 to tell us your ideas, symbols, designs or any other feedback that can inform the Secretary as he considers options for the $10 redesign.

Who would you put?

11 barks and woofs on “The New $10 Bill

  1. Frances Perkins, the first woman to serve in the cabinet of a U.S. President’s Administration. Also, “Baby” in Dirty Dancing was named after her, so contrary to Jill’s assertion, this is the obvious choice.

  2. Would that they would leave my hero, Hamilton, on the Ten and replace Jackson on the Twenty. The latter was every bit as bad a president as George W Bush. I do like the Abigail Adams suggestion, but Eleanor is the best choice. Then there’s Dolly Madison!

  3. Since women are paid $.78 for every $1 that men receive, does that mean the new $10 will be worth only $7.80? Just askin’….

  4. If you read the facts of her life, the only person on the list must be Araminta Harriet Ross Tubman Davis. She lived a titanic 93 years and was the symbol of the end of American slavery and a true heroine of the 19th Century. The current racial problems only make her the one woman who should be “honored” with a very visible daily reminder that we are not finished with this American tragedy.
