Treasury Secretary Jack Lew told CNN Money that Alexander Hamilton's face will remain on the $10 bill following the popularity of the Broadway musical "Hamilton." Lew is expected to announce this week that Andrew Jackson — one of the more unpopular presidents — will be replaced on the $20 bill with a prominent woman, according to a government source as CNN Money reported

Update: Harriet Tubman — also known as the Black Moses who fought for racial equality and freed slaves through the Underground Railroad — will replace Jackson, Politico reported.

Should Andrew Jackson be removed from the $20 bill to make room for the first woman (Tubman) on U.S. currency? Or should we just let sleeping dogs lie?

Some of the other names that floated around as replacements for Jackson included civil rights legend Rosa Parks, and other iconic women like feminist Susan B. Anthony (who will be featured in mural-style on the back of the $10 bill) and Betsy Ross, who designed the first U.S. flag.
