I think the idea is worth exploring and I was wondering who would be best suited for the position. Of all the names I've seen tossed out Sally Ride, Susan B. Anthony, and Rosa Parks seemed the most deserving. If I was forced to pick I think Susan B. Anthony is best suited because of her broad and enduring impact on American history and because she better fits chronologically with our current choices.

    I put up the options I'd read tossed around the most with one or two of my own choosing but feel free to add in your own. I also recognize that this would force the displacement of someone else from our currency and if I had to pick I don't think I'd be too sorry to see Jackson go.

    While the women on the list do a have a distinguished past in their respective fields or topics, they aren't on the same level as Jefferson, Washington, Lincoln, Franklin, etc.

    When America has a great female leader, we can consider putting her on our currency. Washington formed this nation with his own blood, sweat and tears. I can think of no one more deserving for the $1.

    Printing some face you like on a dollar bill isn't going to make you and I agree on anything.

    Priyanka Chopra...the women dancing on last years Thursday Night Football intro's.

    And I know she's not American...I don't care...

    Billboard Events Large


    If it has to be an American...Lt. Uhura (Zoe Saldana or Nichelle Nichols...probably the latter would be more appropriate)

    I think Harriet Tubman went through the most challenges while continuing to show amazing bravery. Sacagawea had the broadest impact on the country. Betsy Ross seems to be the best fit based on contributing to the founding of the country in something that continues to this day although Jackson, Lincoln and Grant and they weren't founders.

    Martin Luther King is really the only person I honestly feel should be on US currency and is not, maybe creating a new $15 bill.

    I have to disagree with that.Harriet Tubman escaped slavery, went back and forth between the north and south to free slaves and acted as a union spy.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    " I do not think a woman should be on a dollar" .
    Strongly disagree, and I have a low opinion of those who are anti-change ! All five of them ..
    Eleanor Roosevelt was my choice, but there are many out there , not listed .
    Its past "high time" that a woman was so honored.
    With inflation as great as it is, the $50 bill may become the most used ..maybe Mrs Roosevelt on the $50.
