America's first National Monument is declared, the world's first nuclear-powered aircraft carrier is launched, we say goodbye to Dr. Seuss, and Nirvana hits it big with "Nevermind," all on this day.

OTD September 24 - 20 bill
5 / 46
Presidential Savings Bank

1998: The U.S. Federal Reserve releases into circulation $2 billion in new harder-to-counterfeit $20 bills. The picture of the White House on the new bills was changed to the north side view. A larger, off-center portrait of Jackson was used on front, and several anti-counterfeiting features were added, including color-shifting ink, microprinting and a watermark.
