Andrew Jackson has graced this bill since 1928.

In 1943, after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, a special emergency series of bills was printed, with brown serial numbers and “HAWAII” overprinted on both the front and the back. These notes were designed to circulate on the islands, and be deemed invalid in the event of a Japanese invasion.
