Who is on the 20 Dollar Bill?
First issued in 1914, the bill first had President Grover Clevelands face on it and was later replaced by Andrew Jackson in 1929. The bill was also decreased in size. The reverse side of the bill shows the White House and has remained largely unchanged. Increased security features were added in 1990, 1998, and 2003. Abolitionist and political activist Harriet Tubman was chosen to replace Jackson in 2020, but this has been postponed until 2028 due to security concerns. Tubman will be the first African American to appear on US currency.
Who is on the 50 Dollar Bill?
Ulysses S. Grant appeared on the face of the $50 bill in 1914. Grant played a pivotal role in helping the United States recover from the Civil War and served two terms as president. Initially, the reverse side of the bill was a picture of Panama, a battleship, and a merchant. This was later replaced by an of the US Capitol. The bill has seen security upgrades in 1990, 1997, and 2004. This included the addition of microprinted words and red and blue colors on either side of the bill. A watermark of the American flag has also been added to the right of Grant
Founding Father Benjamin Franklin has had his face featured on the $100 bill since it was originally issued in 1914. The note underwent a significant redesign in 2009, where Franklin’s portrait was placed next to the Declaration of Independence, an inkwell and a quill pen. New anti-counterfeiting technologies such as black-light technology and holographic watermarks were also introduced. The reverse side of the bill features Independence Hall in Philadelphia. It is the first time that a building outside of Washington DC has been shown on any denomination.
$10,000 Series 1928, 1934, 1934A & 1934B Green Seal
Like the previous $10,000 bill, these bills produced in 1928 and 1934 also bear the likeness of Salmon P. Chase on the front. However, the back of the bill simply says, “The United States of America – Ten Thousand Dollars – 10,000.”
Though it might be nice to have a bill of this high denomination, the Bureau of Engraving & Printing, a division of the U.S. Department of the Treasury, states, “The $100,000 Gold Certificate was used only for official transactions between Federal Reserve Banks and was not circulated among the general public. This note cannot be legally held by currency note collectors.” The front has a portrait of Woodrow Wilson, the 28th President of the United States.
