Federal Reserve To Release New $100 Bill Tomorrow

The new $100 note is the latest denomination of U.S. currency to be redesigned. Over a decade of research and development went into its new security features and it begins circulating on October 8, 2013! This note, which incorporates new security features such as a blue, 3-D security ribbon, will be easier for the public to authenticate but more difficult for counterfeiters to replicate. These bills were also pretty tough to make as the Federal Reserve had a creasing issue when making these $100 bills and had to delay production and destroy $3 billion worth of the new bills.  Yes, we destroyed 30 million $100 bills due to printing issues earlier this year!

The Federal Reserve didn’t release any high resolution currency images due to counterfeiting concerns, but we have a gallery of 250 pixels by 150 pixels images above for you to check out.


Here is a video that has Sonja Danburg, program manager for U.S. Currency Education at the Federal Reserve Board, discussing how to use the new security features to authenticate the redesigned $100 bill.

    Claims to be way more secure against counterfeiting.

    Doesn’t release high res images because they’re worried about counterfeiting.

    Make like the rest of the world and use plastic polymer notes/3d holographic windows in notes already.
