A Change Gon Come Harriet Tubman New 20 Dollar Bill

A Change Gon Come Harriet Tubman New 20 Dollar Bill.

It's been a long time coming.

Flashbacking to the popular song by the Great Sam Cooke, the lyrics seem to fit this change coming to the 20 dollar bill.

This has been a back and forth issue for some time, placing a woman on the face of U.S. currency.

Other depictions of women and civil rights leaders will also be part of new currency designs.
Also in the works, are other pictures of women who will grace the fronts and backs of the new currency rollout.

Treasury Secretary Jacob J. Lew, had been the object of criticism from women's groups, due to his failure to keep his promises involving a 10 month timeline to put a woman on the face of the 10 dollar bill. The 10 dollar bill is the next bill up for change due to an anti-counterfeiting makeover.

The wide spread changes to money coming may alleviate some pressures from the women's groups.

The new designs are targeted for public release in the next 4 years, this will be around the time of the 100 anniversary of women's suffrage.

Too bad the power of money doesn't change with the look, the things you can do with money will still be the same.

The Bureau of Engraving and Printing is responsible for the timely dispersion of the new bills.
