Question: Who was the first person to appear on the $1 bill?

Answer: The nation’s first president wasn’t always the one on the one. The first $1 bill featured Salmon P. Chase, a politician, former Treasury Secretary, and Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. Oddly enough, Chase liked the portrait so much that he had it printed on his business cards. He joked that his photo was selected because the bill needed a handsome man.
