The Assistant Treasurer of the United States Treasury has approved a plan for systematizing designs for United States notes and coin certificates which will embody the ideas of officials of the Treasury Department, bankers, business men, and currency experts. Under the plan adopted, all classes of notes of each denomination will carry the same portrait. The one-dollar silver certificate will carry the portrait of Washington; the two-dollar silver certificate the portrait of Jefferson; the five-dollar note, whether silver certificate or greenback, will carry the portrait of Lincoln; the ten-dollar gold and silver certificates and United States notes, that of Cleveland; the twenty-dollar that of Jackson; the fifty-dollar that of Grant; the one-hundred-dollar that of Franklin; the five-hundred-dollar that of Salmon P. Chase; the one-thousand-dollar that of Alexander Hamilton.
