Coming to the $20 bill in 2020?

Will the US feature any other women on our currency?

The Treasury is also expected to introduce changes to the $5 and $10 bills to honor other women leaders. (Ben White, Politico)

Founding father Alexander Hamilton won’t be going anywhere any time soon either. Hamilton’s image will be kept on the front of the $10 bill, but now he’ll be sharing the back of the bill with leaders of the suffrage movement — Lucretia Mott, Sojourner Truth, Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Alice Paul.

The $5 bill will also be revamped. While Lincoln will remain on the front of the bill, he will share the back of the bill with prominent individuals of the civil rights movement including Marian Anderson,Eleanor Roosevelt and Martin Luther King Jr., each of whom had a historic moment at the Lincoln Memorial.

Cool changes. I wonder why not change the back of the $1 bill, too, eventually?
