Not only was Alexander Hamilton the country's first Secretary of the Treasury, he also helped establish the U.S. Mint—and his face is still on the $10 bill. His list of titles included military commander, economist, congressman, banker, lawyer and political philosopher. After resigning from Congress, he returned to New York to continue his legal work, and in 1784 founded the Bank of New York.
