Lin-Manuel Miranda, who created the Broadway show "Hamilton" and plays America's first treasury secretary onstage, said he met with Treasury Secretary Jacob J. Lew this week and was assured a redesigned $10 bill won't leave fans of the founding father feeling devalued, NBC News reported.
Lew said last year that he wanted to add a woman's image to the $10 note, which currently features Alexander Hamilton's likeness.
"The secretary thanked Miranda for the ingenious way in which he has been able to tell Hamilton’s story and ignite a renewed interest in one of our nation's founding fathers," a Treasury spokesperson said. "Secretary Lew also reiterated his commitment to continue to honor Alexander Hamilton on the 10 dollar bill.”
The feds haven't said how Hamilton might be commemorated on cash after the revamp. The new design is expected to roll out in 2020.
