Broadway Star's Dream Of Keeping Hamilton On $10 Bill Likely Coming True

Last summer, Jacob J. Lew, Secretary of the Treasury, announced changes would be coming to the $10 bill, making fans of Alexander Hamilton very nervous.

As there has been talk of putting a woman on the paper money, many expressed fear that her portrait would replace that of the founding father.

On Wednesday morning, Lin-Manuel Miranda, star of the Broadway hit "Hamilton," eased that concern, tweeting, "I talked to @USTreasury about this on Monday. Sec. Lew told me '"you're going to be very happy.'"

Miranda stopped by the Secretary's office prior to a White House visit.

Lew has noted that keeping Hamilton on the 10 doesn't necessarily mean scrapping plans to feature a woman, as the bill does have two sides.
