New US$100 Bill with Advanced Security Features to Prevent Counterfeit

April 28, 2010 | Cool Stuff | Videos | No Comments

Uncle Sam has released images of the upcoming new $100 bill (see pictures above).  The new bill will be released on February 10, 2011 and is the most widely circulated.  The old $100 bill will still be good, but will eventually retire by the new one.  

The new $100 bill shows phrases from the Declaration of Independence and the quill the Founding Fathers used to sign. The rear has a new enlarged vignette of Independence Hall showing the back instead of the front of the building.

New security features have been added to the new $100 bill to prevent counterfeiting which includes:

  • The Blue 3-D Security Ribbon on the front of the new $100 bill contains images of bells and 100s that move and change from one to the other as you tilt the note.
  • The Bell in the Inkwell changes color from copper to green when the note is tilted, an effect that makes it seem to appear and disappear within the copper inkwell.
  • Portrait watermark of Benjamin Franklin
  • Security thread
  • Color-shifting numeral 100
