April 20, 2016

An important symbolic change for US currency. Politico reports that the heroine of the Underground Railroad, Harriet Tubman, will be the new face of the twenty dollar bill.

We'll have to wait for the redesign, as changes in currency must pass many anti-counterfeit tests before being printed. It may be as late as 2030 before the new bills are in wide circulation.

The twenty dollar bill is the most used currency, and also the most counterfeited currency in the United States. The hundred dollar bill is most counterfeited overseas.
