It's debatable if Alexander Hamilton's image on the $10 bill was saved by the Broadway play "Hamilton," but the hit show's star hinted in a tweet Wednesday that U.S. Treasury Secretary Jacob J. Lew told him fans won't be disappointed by the new bills, according to Variety.

Lin-Manuel Miranda, who created and stars in hit Broadway musical, met with Lew on Monday before visiting President Barack Obama at the White House.

Miranda took to Twitter Wednesday to say that he had a pro-Hamilton conversation with Lew about the $10 bill.


A Treasury Department spokeswoman told The New York Times that the Lew supported Hamilton in his meeting with Miranda, but was more general in his response.

"The secretary and Miranda talked about the enduring mark Alexander Hamilton left on our nation's history, and the secretary provided a brief tour of Hamilton's possessions and portraits on display at the treasury department," the spokeswoman told the Times.

"The Secretary thanked Miranda for the ingenious way in which he has been able to tell Hamilton's story and ignite a renewed interest in one of our nation's founding fathers. Secretary Lew also reiterated his commitment to continue to honor Alexander Hamilton on the $10 bill." 

Lew announced in June 2015 that he would replace Hamilton's image on the $10 bill with a woman's but others, including former Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, have urged Lew to reverse his decision, according to Newsday.
