Poor Jackson got the honor of being featured on the US zero note. I kind of want to put Trump's face there.

Jackson's face is fitting -- He fought against corruption, and he particularly hated central banking and other banker interests.

And he defied a ruling by the Supreme Court to initiate the Trail of Tears, killing ~16000 Native Americans during their forced relocation. The new valuation suits him well indeed.

And that was horribly wrong, but I'm not sure it fully discounts the current context about monetary corruption.
