The U.S. Treasury Plan To Update The Images On U.S. Currency


Last week U.S. Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew announced that an image of former slave and abolitionist Harriet Tubman will replace Andrew Jackson's picture on the front of the $20 bill, with a smaller image of President Jackson appearing on the reverse side.

Lew also announced plans to add images of women to the backs of the $5 and $10 bills. Joining us to discuss the historically symbolic makeover, how our currency is designed, and to look at the life of Harriet Tubman, is Chris DeSimio, a financial advisor with Wells Fargo Advisors in Cincinnati.
