Different series may represent minor or major design changes, or no design change (series listed on the same line). Only a variety of a President's portrait used on paper money is noted next to the series date.

Twenty-three U.S. Presidents have appeared on U.S. coin and paper currency (As of March 2017). By law (31 U.S.C. § 5114), "only the portrait of a deceased individual may appear on United States currency". The Secretary of the Treasury usually determines which people and which of their portraits appear on the nation's currency, however legislation passed by Congress can also determine currency design.[1] Presidents appearing on U.S. currency are (in order of service):
