The Harriet Tubman stamp is now on display as a part of the Smithsonian’s The Value of Money exhibition at the National Museum of American History in Washington, DC. The Smithsonian joins the International Slavery Museum in putting the Harriet Tubman stamp on display to the public.
From The Value of Money exhibit:
In 2016, the Obama administration launched plans to replace President Andrew Jackson on the twenty dollar bill with abolitionist Harriet Tubman for the next release of the bill in the 2020s. In 2019, the Trump administration delayed this change. In response, individuals have begun to replace Jackson’s portrait with Tubman’s on circulating notes using a 3-D printed stamp created by Dano Wall.
