Harriet Tubman will be the new face on the $20 bill, replacing former President Andrew Jackson, according to reports.

According to Politico, Treasury Secretary Jack Lew is set to announce on Wednesday that Alexander Hamilton will remain on the front of the $10 bill and that women’s suffrage leaders will be on the back of the bill.

The $5 bill, which currently features President Abraham Lincoln will be modified with the addition of civil rights era leaders.

In the summer of 2015, the Treasury Department announced it was considering replacing Hamilton on the $10, but there was backlash from Hamilton supporters. Hamilton was instrumental in creating the Treasury Department. Fans of Hamilton instead started petitions calling on the Treasury Department to remove President Jackson instead. Jackson has faced criticism for his role in the Trail of Tears which removed some Native Americans from their land.
