The planned Harriet Tubman currency — which was slated to replace the $20 Andrew Jackson bill in time for the 2020 centennial of the 19th Amendment — can't be rolled out until 2028. Preliminary design work on the Harriet Tubman $20 bill was completed late in President Barack Obama’s administration before President Donald Trump’s administration postponed the initiative last month. As we all saw a leaked photo of the process.
Trump is a fan of Jackson, who was a slave owner, leader of U.S. forces in the Battle of New Orleans and the seventh president. After Trump took office in 2017, the Treasury Department’s website was altered to remove mention of the Obama administration’s plans to put Tubman on the front of the $20 bill and move Jackson to the back. Then on May 22, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin he was delaying an announcement of the bill’s design by eight years, well after Trump leaves office.
