Abolitionist Harriet Tubman, barrier-breaking opera singer Marian Anderson and female suffragists won’t be the first real-life women to appear on major United States paper currency, but they will be the first in more than a century.
Pocahontas once graced the back of the national $20 bill in an image, based on a painting now in the Capitol Rotunda and on a note first issued in the 1865, that portrayed her baptism. She appears dressed in a gown and kneeling on a podium before a priest, flanked by settlers on one side and Native Americans on the other.
Martha Washington, the United States’s initial first lady, appeared on U.S. $1 silver certificates in 1886, 1891 and 1896.
