Who are the only faces that appear on the US currency that were not US presidents?
On current bills:
Hamilton - $10
Franklin - $100
On bills no longer in use:
$10,000 - Salmon P. Chase
Alexander Hamilton and Ben Franklin of course.
Salmon P. Chase was on the $10,000 bill when there were larger denomination bills printed. A bit of history shows he did just about everything in American Politics. He was U.S. Senator, a Governor, Secretary of the Treasury and Chief Justice of the Supreme Court.
