The new signature on all U.S. currency will be Steven Mnuchin's — and it won't be as illegible as his usual autograph, the Treasury Secretary said on Thursday.

Mnuchin told CNBC's "Squawk Box" that he felt compelled to polish his scribbles after a dinner where everybody signed the menu and he realized nobody could read his name.

"My kids and others have encouraged me to have a new signature, so I've been practicing it so it'll be nice and neat on the money," Mnuchin said.
