Download: President pushes for money idea after young girl’s note
Putting the faces of women on money.
President Obama brought up the idea while speaking in Kansas City on Wednesday.
According to the New York Daily News, the president said a young girl gave him a note last week asking why women don’t appear on U.S. dollars and coins.
President Obama said, “And then she gave me like a long list of possible women to put on our dollar bills and quarters and stuff, which I thought was a pretty good idea.”
The U.S. Mint created a Susan B. Anthony dollar coin in 1979; in 1999, a dollar coin featured Sacagawea.
