Goodbye Andrew, Hello Harriet
April 21, 2016 4:32pm CST
We will be saying goodbye to Andrew Jackson on the United States of America's $20 dollar bill and hello to the new face of Harriet Tubman. So if you want to collect some Jacksons you can put aside some unused bills as keepseakes. I doubt that the value of these will go up in time but then they just might and collectors of stamps and coins might want to invest a few hundred dollars in saving some uncirculated twenties with good old Andrew on them. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/wonk/wp/2016/04/20/u-s-to-keep-hamilton-on-front-of-10-bill-put-portrait-of-harriet-tubman-on-20-bill/
Andrew Jackson will move to the back of the $20 to make room for the abolitionist.

It has been a long time since the face of any bill has been changed in this manner. I guess we will want to collect the old bills as keep sakes. I probably will end up spending my Andrew Jacksons because I can't seem to save anything these days. lol

Personally, I don't think they should have changed the bill. The people on the bills are from US history and should be respected, removing them isn't respectful. If they want to add new people to money, they should make new denominations to put them on.
