A woman will appear on the $10 bill beginning in 2020, the Treasury Department said Wednesday.

Just which woman is up to you.

Legally, the decision belongs to Jack Lew, but the Treasury secretary said he’s seeking public input on which female historical figure should appear on U.S. paper currency for the first time in 119 years.

“We’re going to spend a lot of time this summer listening to people,” Lew said. A decision could come this fall.

But even then, it will take nearly five years for the new bill to see circulation. That’s because of the intricate planning for a redesign that will incorporate new anti-counterfeit measures and tactile features for the blind.
