US$100 Bill Gets Redesigned, Debuts In October

The US Federal Reserve Board has unveiled a redesign of $100 bills.

The new ‘Benjamin Franklin’ contains two advanced security features to make it easier to authenticate, and harder to counterfeit: a 3-D Security Ribbon, and the Bell in the Inkwell.

“Tilt the note back and forth while focusing on the blue ribbon,” a statement from the US Federal Reserve said, “You will see the bells change to 100s as they move. The ribbon is woven into the paper, not printed on it.”

“Tilt the note to see the color-shifting bell in the copper inkwell change from copper to green.”


The $100 bill will debut on 8 October later this year, but it won’t be necessary for users to trade in their old notes for the new ones.

What do you think of the new $100 note of the US?
