Re-Designed $100 Bill

The US Mint is releasing their new design for the $100 bill early next year. This new design is great news with new anti-counterfeit features, but bad news for me with my wallet filled with $100 bills that are so last season... Actually there $1.00 bills with zeros written on them. Don't judge...

There are a number of security features in the redesigned $100 note, including two new features, the 3-D Security Ribbon and the Bell in the Inkwell. These security features are easy for consumers and merchants to use to authenticate their currency.

The blue 3-D Security Ribbon on the front of the new $100 note contains images of bells and 100s that move and change from one to the other as you tilt the note. The Bell in the Inkwell on the front of the note is another new security feature. The bell changes color from copper to green when the note is tilted, an effect that makes it seem to appear and disappear within the copper inkwell.
