The Fed, along with the Treasury Department on Wednesday unveiled the new design for the $100 note, the highest denomination of all U.S. notes, which incorporates two new security features to combat counterfeiting while at the same time retaining the traditional look of the U.S. currency.
The new bill’s security features include a blue 3-D Security Ribbon on the front of the note and the “Bell in the Inkwell” image that changes color from copper to green when the note is tilted.
WSJ: “As with previous U.S. currency redesigns, this note incorporates the best technology available to ensure we’re staying ahead of counterfeiters,” Treasury Secretary Geithner said at the unveiling.
