Let’s Explore The New One Hundred Dollar Bill



October 8th, 2013 by in Finance with 2,121 Views

The Federal Reserve announced today that the new $100 will be released today. The new bill has been totally revamped with new features to deter counterfeiters. This is the first redesign since March of 1996. The bill is released even though the government is shutdown due to the fact that the Federal Reserve is self funded.

The new $100 bill, with a number of an array of high-tech features designed to thwart counterfeiters, will finally get its coming out party on Tuesday, partial government shutdown or not. The Federal Reserve, which has not been affected by the shutdown, will have armored trucks rolling from its regional banks around the country headed to banks, savings and loans and other financial institutions with the new C-notes.

New Security Features

Two key security features of the new bill include a 3-D security ribbon with images of bells and 100s and a color-shifting bell inside a copper inkwell on the front of the note.

If you tilt the bill back and forth, you’ll see the bells change to 100s as they move, shifting in color from copper to green in an effect that makes the bell seem to appear and disappear in the inkwell.

100 Dollar Bill Facts

It costs 12.5 cents to produce one $100 bill because of the new security features (the older version cost 8.7 cents to make).  (Yahoo)

    This was really cool article-I didn’t know they were coming out with a new $100. Thanks for sharing!

    In USA a $100 note produce cost is only 12.5 cents! But in Bangladesh a Tk10 note produce cost is more that that. Anyway, looking forward to see the new $100 note.
