$100 Bill Wraps Up Federal Reserve Currency Redesign

 

The new, more colorful $100 bill design is set to enter circulation in the United States this fall. Production issues have delayed its introduction by more than two years, but the redesigned bill is finally set to enter circulation on October 8, 2013. The original launch of the new $100 bill was supposed to happen in February of 2011, but it took more time than anticipated to correct the production problems that left unacceptable creases in the new bills.

The bills’ newly designed anti-counterfeiting measures include a 3D security ribbon, along with what people may find the most jarring: an orange quill and inkwell, with a disappearing image of the Liberty Bell inside the inkwell. This design is different enough that the government has launched an education program targeting American consumers; anyone can view the design online at newmoney.gov to familiarize themselves with the new currency design. This education program is part of the redesign’s plan to make counterfeit bills easier for the American public to recognize.

“We made numerous process changes to address the creasing issue and we are back in full production,” said Dawn Haley, a spokeswoman for the Bureau of Engraving and Printing.

The $100 bill is the U.S. Treasury’s final planned redesign; the $5, $10, $20 and $50 bills have all been redesigned and entered circulation with the enhanced security features. The Federal Reserve says it has no plans to redesign the $1 bill at this time.
