Leonard Olijar: What it takes to make the new $20 bill

Leonard Olijar, director, Bureau of Engraving and Printing

Harriet Tubman died more than a century ago. Photographs of her are grainy and fuzzy. And she's not the sort of person who wold have posed for an expensive oil painting. Yet somehow her likeness has to be translated for printing on the new $20. Creating that bill falls to the Treasury Department's Bureau of Engraving and Printing. Bureau Director Leonard Olijar shares details on Federal Drive with Tom Temin.
