The United States ten-dollar bill (USD 10) is a denomination of U.S. currency. The obverse of the bill features the portrait of Alexander Hamilton, who served as the first U.S. Secretary of the Treasury. The reverse features the U.S. Treasury Building. All USD 10 bills issued today are Federal Reserve Notes. As of December 2018, the average life of a USD 10 bill in circulation is 5.3 years before it is replaced due to wear.USD 10 bills are delivered by Federal Reserve Banks in yellow straps.
The source of the portrait on the USD 10 bill is John Trumbull’s 1805 painting of Hamilton that belongs to the portrait collection of New York City Hall.
The USD 10 bill is unique in that it is the only denomination in circulation in which the portrait faces to the left. It also features one of two non-presidents on currently issued U.S. bills, the other being Benjamin Franklin on the $100 bill.
Hamilton is also the only person not born in the continental United States or British America (he was from the West Indies) currently depicted on U.S. paper currency; three others have been depicted in the past: Albert Gallatin, Switzerland ($500 1862/63 Legal Tender), George Meade, Spain ($1,000 1890/91 Treasury Note), and Robert Morris, England ($1,000 1862/63 Legal Tender; $10 1878/80 Silver Certificate).
In 2015, the Treasury Secretary announced that the obverse portrait of Hamilton would be replaced by the portrait of an as-yet-undecided woman, starting in 2020.

1929, under the Series of 1928, all U.S. currency was changed to its current size. All variations of the USD 10 bill would carry the same portrait of Alexander Hamilton, same border design on the obverse, and the same reverse with a vignette of the U.S. Treasury building.
The USD 10 bill was issued as a Federal Reserve Note with a green seal and serial numbers and as a gold certificate with a golden seal and serial numbers.
The car parked outside of the Treasury Department building is based on a number of different cars manufactured at the time and was the creation of the Bureau designer who developed the artwork that served as a model for the engraving, because government agencies were prohibited from endorsing any specific manufacturer or product, according to a bureau of engraving and printing pamphlet.
The tiny building to the right rear of the treasury building is the American Security and Trust Company Building, which for some years advertised itself as “right on the money” USD 10
