US banknotes are set to mark two historic precedents in coming months, as Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen swore in Lynn Roberge Malerba as treasurer on Monday.

Yellen’s signature on Federal Reserve notes will be the first in US history by a female Treasury secretary. And Malerba’s will become the first by a Native American treasurer.
