Why Can’t Harriet Tubman Appear on the $20 Bill Alone?

I found it very interesting that the U.S. Treasury Secretary announced that Tubman is scheduled to replace President Andrew Jackson on the front of the note. However, Old Hickory is not going away completely; the back of the new $20 bill will include an image of the White House and one of Jackson.

Andrew Jackson has always been out of place on American currency. He was the seventh president of the United States whose primary accomplishments included helping to found the Democratic Party and fighting against centralized banking. He is also credited with the Indian Removal Act and the resulting Trail of Tears. Not exactly something that would make ones resume’ look very good.

The Treasury Secretary indicated that the figure chosen for the $20 would be one involved in the fight for racial equality. On the other hand, the back of the $10 bill will be reconstructed to include a mural of figures from the women’s suffrage movement. Due to the circulation schedule of the treasury department, the new $20 bill is expected to enter circulation in 2030.
