The Treasury Department announced Wednesday a woman will be on the $10 bill, replacing the United State's first treasurer, Alexander Hamilton.
The Treasury Department is asking for America's input on who the woman should be on the $10 bill by using the hashtag #TheNew10 on social media.
Some of the contenders include Eleanor Roosevelt, Susan B. Anthony, Harriet Tubman, and Rosa Parks.
Credit for the monetary shift belongs to a 9-year-old girl who wrote to President Obama, asking why women were not on currency.
Treasury Secretary Jack Lew will make the final decision on what woman will be on the $10 bill.
By law, it cannot be someone still alive.
The new bills will start entering circulation in 2020.
