It´s official. A woman will be joining Alexander Hamilton on the $10 bill, U.S. Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew announced Wednesday.
It is still unclear who will be featured on the bill, but her image will appear on millions of U.S. currency notes beginning in 2020. "I´m proud that the new 10 will be the first bill in more than a century to feature the portrait of a woman," Lew explained.
Lew said it was "personally important" for him that Hamilton still be included on the bill. He will either be incorporated in the new design or several versions will be produced.
