The US Treasury Department revealed Wednesday that a more diverse group of American leaders will be featured on currency including $20, $10, and $5 bills beginning in the 2020s.

Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew announced the overhaul to be more representative of the electorate and those who have contributed to American history.

Harriet Tubman will replace Andrew Jackson on the front of the $20 bill though Jackson will remain on the back.




The New York Times reports that a portrait of Sojourner Truth, an abolitionist and suffragist, will appear on the back of some $10 bills while Alexander Hamilton will remain on the front.
