Project for a new $10 bill featuring an American woman started


A special Treasury Department Web site will be dedicated to give to all Americans the possibility to vote and also the hashtag #thenew10 can be used on the social media. The name of the woman will be selected later this year. Treasury Secretary Jack Lew  will ultimately make the final decision. “This decision to put a woman on the $10 reflects our aspirations for the future, as much as it is a reflection of the past.” he told to the media. In fact, decision to have a woman on the new bill it’s a symbol, considering that the launch of the new bill will correspond to the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, which gave American women the right to vote. The $10 bill was selected for a redesign because it currently includes fewer security features than other bills and is used often enough that the average bill remains in circulation for about a decade.
