Why a new $100-bill? The main reason for the change of the note is to enhance security and protect from counterfeit. The note is the most often counterfeited and most widely circulated outside of U.S. Some of the new features include 3-D features (woven 3-D ribbon), micro lettering (small printed words on Benjamin Franklin’s jacket collar), color (pale blue background), and raised printing (different texture on Benjamin’s shoulder) to name a few. The size and picture remains the same.
Take a glance at the new note and be on the lookout for the new $-100 bill eight months from now.
