The U.S. Treasury secretary on Wednesday took a tour of the Bureau of Engraving and Printing to see production of the new $1 bills with his signature. His wife, Louise Linton, joined the visit, along with Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and adviser, and several Treasury officials. The new bills are scheduled to go into circulation next month.

Mnuchin, 54, is a former Goldman Sachs Group Inc. partner who went on to start a hedge fund that is now defunct. He later purchased a failing mortgage lender in California and started financing movies, earning producer credits for films including “Mad Max: Fury Road” and “Suicide Squad.” He even made a cameo appearance in “Rules Don’t Apply,” a Warren Beatty film released last year.
