The Harriet Tubman $20 USD Bill Design Has Leaked

Weeks after the United States Treasury's announcement to postpone the release of the $20 USD bill featuring American abolitionist Harriet Tubman, the initial design for the currency has leaked, as obtained by The New York Times.

The image, which was shared by a former member of the Treasury Department, features Tubman wearing a dark collared jacket and a white scarf and has reportedly been completed since 2016. In Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin's announcement last month, however, "counterfeiting issues” have purportedly led the government to consider a new design for the impending money. Scroll below to view it now in a post shared on social media.

The discussion of whether to change the look of Tubman's $20 USD bill will not happen until 2026, according to Mnuchin, pushing its printing until 2028. President Andrew Jackson is the face of the current edition.
