New $100 Bill Has 3D Security and Color-Changing Liberty Bell

April 22, 2010

(ChattahBox)—A new $100 bill was unveiled during a ceremony on Wednesday, featuring anti-counterfeiting technology and a nifty new image of the Liberty Bill, which puts on a color show when tilted. The new “Benjamins” were introduced by U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke, and are adorned with Geithner’s signature.

The bills contain a “3-D Security Ribbon” to deter counterfeiters. And an image of the Liberty Bell changes from shades of copper to green.

According to Bloomberg, the new $100 bill, also retains features from older bills:

“The reverse side of the bill includes a new vignette of Independence Hall in Philadelphia. As with previous U.S. currency redesigns, this note incorporates the best technology available to ensure we’re staying ahead of counterfeiters,” said Geithner, whose signature appears on the bills. The bills also retain from the previous version a portrait watermark of Franklin, who signed the Declaration of Independence, as well as a security thread and a “color- shifting” numeral 100, officials announced at the unveiling ceremony at the Treasury in Washington.”

The new $100 bills will go into circulation on Feb. 10, 2011, but older bills can still be used as valid currency.

The Treasury put together a video showcasing all of the bill’s new features.
