Yo people! Think out of the box. Why should there only be one face associated with a particular bill? In Europe, the Euro coins have different faces on the same denomination. For example, you can have King Juan Carlos from Spain on a Euro, or Eleftherios Venezelos from Greece on another and so on. The back side of the coin has the number denomination and is always the same. Now, the Europeans only do this with coinage. But, there's no reason that this should be the case. Anyway, this discussion only exists because we think there's limited "real estate" on a bill. That's not the case. It's infinite. This being said, there are cost implications in that machines might need to be adjusted or re-tooled for different production runs. Still, would the cost be worth the ability to better reflect America in its diversity? Wouldn't it be worth opening up space for future leaders while preserving the past? You bet! See more
