Release of Harriet Tubman $20 Bill Pushed Back to 2028

Release of Harriet Tubman $20 Bill Pushed Back to 2028 Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin recently announced that the $20 bill redesign would not be unveiled in 2020 as planned.

The new bill was set to feature Harriet Tubman and coincide with the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment.

Mnuchin said the date change is due to a delay with the design process.

Steven Mnuchin, via โ€˜CNBCโ€™ The Harriet Tubman design was first announced in 2016, following a 10-month process involving public responses.

The Women on 20s campaign, a group that has advocated for Tubmanโ€™s $20 bill, believe the delay is due to previous comments made by Donald Trump.

Months before he was elected, Trump called the change โ€œpure political correctnessโ€ and proposed Tubman be portrayed on the $2 bill instead.
