Artist creates stamp placing Harriet Tubman on $20 bills as act of ‘civil disobedience'

Posted On: May 26, 2019   |   Posted By: WGN TV

NEW YORK - A New York designer is taking an act of “civil disobedience” after Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin announced Wednesday that a redesign of the $20 bill featuring Harriet Tubman's face would not be ready in time for its planned 2020 release.
In April the treasury announced Tubman would replace Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill.
According to USA Today Mnuchin said the bill's delay could could last eight years, citing “counterfeiting issues” as the reason behind it.
This news brought attention to a previously released product, a single-color ink stamp, intended to replace Jackson's face with Tubman's.
