I know for certain that the new 20 came out after 9/11 (by a few years).
very shocked at the amount of similarity's there are
Other currencies with similar features followed -- a new $50 bill in 1997, a new $20 bill in 1998, and new $5 and $10 notes in 2000.
The new $20 bill will go into circulation in the fall -- most likely in October, according to Thomas Ferguson, director of the Bureau of Engraving and Printing.
# 1977: A new type of serial-number press results in a slightly different font. The old presses are gradually retired, and old-style serial numbers appear as late as 1981 for this denomination.
# 1990: Anti-counterfeiting features are added: microprinting around the portrait, and a plastic strip embedded in the paper.
# September 24, 1998: Received a completely new appearance to further deter counterfeiting; the picture of the White House was changed to the north side view. A larger, off-center portrait of Jackson was used on front, and several anti-counterfeiting features were added, including color-shifting ink, microprinting, and a watermark.
# October 9, 2003: Still another new appearance with light background shading in blue and yellow , and no oval around Andrew Jackson's portrait (background images of eagles, etc. were also added to the front); the back is the same view of the White House, but without the oval around it. Many tiny, faint "20"s are scattered on the back in yellow as a "EURion constellation" to prevent photocopying. The series date is 2004.

It says that the back is the same view of the white house as in 1998, which appears to be the driving factor in making that twin towers shape.
