THE BACK STORY
In response to the decision by Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin to delay replacing Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill with Harriet Tubman, many people have turned to using a stamp to imprint a portrait of Harriet Tubman over Andrew Jackson on their bills in an act of ‘civil disobedience’. Find out how we got here.
ABOUT THE STAMP
Originally designed by NYC artist Dano Wall in 2017, the Harriet Tubman Stamp has become the new “face” for artistic activism. In response to the recent postponement of Tubman replacing Jackson on the $20, popularity for this stamp has increased. The original image for this stamp comes from a carte-de-visite portrait of Harriet Tubman taken by Benjamin Powelson in Auburn, NY in 1868, currently the earliest known photograph of her.
Wall has set a goal of 5,000 or more stamps to be sold and used to stamp as many $20 bills in circulation as possible. We are joining in with our years of experience creating stamps for money; projects including WheresGeorge.com.
Our stamp is made with high quality photopolymer and mounted on a see-thru acrylic mount to ensure a precise impression on every bill.
Each acrylic stamp comes with a special Palette ink pad that is filled with hybrid ink that will dry quickly and permanently on the bills.
