I just found out that Jovita Carranza  is now SBA, meaning that at the moment, we don't have a Treasurer. 

Who will the next Treasurer be ? 

If Mnuchin stays on , the next series will be 2017B. 

2017 and 2017A could both be short series.

Assuming Trump wins re-election (don’t start it, y’all!) would not the next series still be 2021? Would seem like it would be 2017B only if the appointment occurred before the end of this year.

A new Treasurer is considered a minor change and gets the addition of a letter to the series. 

A new Secretary of the Treasury is considered a major change and gets a new series year. 

Mnuchin would have to be replaced to get series 2021.

I’m not convinced this is entirely accurate. Q.David Bowers has written his opinion regarding this as, “ Beginning in 1974, the series year changed with the appointment of a new secretary of the Treasury. Commencing with the series of 1990, a new series year has begun each time there is a change in either of the two printed signatures.” Adding to this are the numerous anomalies found with the 2006, 2006A, 2009 and 2009A $100 note.

“ ... Commencing with the series of 1990, a new series year has begun each time there is a change in either of the two printed signatures.”


The 2006A, 2009A, and 2017A stuff is admittedly a mess, but that quote just isn't accurate.  Series 2003A and 2004A exist because of a new Treasurer's signature paired with an existing Secretary's.  There has never been a new series year used when only the Treasurer's signature changed.

Over the near-century of small-size currency issues, the series-dating rules have been changed several times without warning, and they might well change again.  (Shortly before Series 2003A and 2004A went into production, there was much speculation about whether the "A" would really be used for the first time in fifteen years.)  So we can't be absolutely confident that notes signed by a new Treasurer and Mnuchin would be called Series 2017B.  But all precedent says they should be.

I guess the only real certainty is that outcome of the election is the likely determining factor? Is it possible for the President to install a new Treasurer and notes go out before the end of this year?

As a result of a reform during the previous administration, the Treasurer's post no longer requires Senate confirmation.  So, yes, in principle the President could appoint a new Treasurer today and have her (or even him!) in office tomorrow.  But it's probably not a very high priority.  The Treasurer's office has several times been vacant for long periods without causing any problems.
