$20 Bill May Not Be the Only Currency Change Coming, Reports Say
The $20 bill is getting a fresh new makeover, with civil rights pioneer Harriet Tubman to replace America’s 7th President, Andrew Jackson.
Tubman, an African-American abolitionist who escaped slavery and helped rescue others, will be the first woman to grace modern U.S. paper currency.
Meanwhile, Alexander Hamilton will remain on the $10 bill – a development that could be credited to the emergence of hit Broadway musical “Hamilton,” Leland Vittert reported.
And another change could be coming. The Wall Street Journal reported that the Treasury has been interested in suspending production of the penny, citing the fact that the cost of making 1 penny is actually 1.7 cents.
The Real Story asked viewers what they thought – and 59 percent responded that we should keep the penny, while 41 percent voted to remove it.
