The BEP unveiled the redesigned $100 note on April 21, 2010. The new design includes advanced technology to combat counterfeiting while retaining the traditional look of US currency. Two new advanced security features are:
3D Security Ribbon
The blue ribbon on the front of the note contains bells and 100s that move side to side or up and down when the note is tilted.
Color-Shifting Bell in an Inkwell
This new image on the front of the note features a color-shifting bell inside a copper-colored inkwell that changes from copper to green.
Other features added or redesigned include:
- Portrait watermark
- Security thread
- Color shifting 100
- Raised printing
- Large gold 100
The new note will be issued on February 20, 2011. To learn more, visit the BEP's website, www.newmoney.gov
