Alexander Hamilton is getting a facelift. The U.S. Treasury has begun printing newly designed $10 bills, with the visage of the founding father (1757-1804) appearing larger than it does on current currency. The new 10-spot joins the freshly minted golden dollar coin and the recently redesigned $100, $50 and $20 bills, and is scheduled to enter circulation this summer. Yeah, but just try using it in a vending machine.
