This Bloomberg News article seems to indicate that the planned design change putting Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill is still in the works (at least for now). -Editor
The U.S. government agency that prints currency notes hasn’t been instructed to take Harriet Tubman's picture off the $20 note redesign project and is proceeding with the Obama administration's
Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said last month he would review the Obama-era initiative, adding that it's not a high priority amid a heavy policy agenda that includes the first major tax
overhaul in three decades. The department's Bureau of Engraving and Printing said it has not received any orders to slow or halt the redesign.
The bureau "is still following current guidance," spokeswoman Lydia Washington said in an emailed reply to questions. "The redesign of the next currency series is still in the early stages and the
Secretary of the Treasury approves all final currency designs."
