The treasury department announced it yesterday that it is to replace its own first secretary Alexander Hamilton by a woman’s face on the $ 10 bill and he is to appear as a diminished image on the bill.

The currency is to be launched in 2020 on the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment of giving the women the right of voting and Americans will be weighing it in summer to see among the historian ladies to be honored.

Will it bel Etleanor Rososevel, Abolitionist Harriet Tubman, Rosa Paker the civil rights icon or Wilma Mankiller because they are among the mentioned ones.

Mr. Obama raised the idea of putting a woman on American currency during an economic speech in Kansas city last July from a  girl who wrote him a letter asking him why wasn’t a woman on the U.S currency , he said  “which  I thought it was a pretty good idea” although a group called Women  had urged President Barack Obama to replace President Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill with a woman and the organized partition sent the request for the change in White House last month.

  The $10 bill already was the next up for a redesign.

it makes it a practical vehicle for the symbolic portrait change and he also said he will be announcing a decision later in the year then they will go into production.

The decision to overshadow Mr. Hamilton, the first treasury secretary is part of a scheduled redesign of the $10 bill and the Legal Tender Act of 1862 gives the Treasury Department broad powers to design U.S currency.
