Yellen provides signature for paper currency
Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen last week provided her official signature that will be used on the 2021 series of U.S. paper currency, the department said Tuesday.
Treasury said Yellen provided her signature on March 10 during a meeting with Bureau of Engraving and Printing Director Leonard Olijar. The department plans to reveal her signature in the near future.

U.S. bills are signed by the Treasury secretary as well as the U.S. Treasurer.
New signatures may not be the only change to bills under the Biden administration. The White House said in January that it’s looking at speeding up the process of putting Harriet Tubman’s image on the $20 bill, after the Trump administration delayed the effort.
The signature of former President Trump’s Treasury secretary, Steven Mnuchin, appeared on bills starting in 2017. Mnuchin and his wife, Louise Linton, toured the Bureau of Printing and Engraving in November 2017 to see the production of the first bills with his name.
