The New $100 Bill



The newly redesigned US $100 bill is more colorful than any US currency you've seen. There a lot of new security features to impede counterfeiting, including a blue ribbon embedded in the front with a watermark, a color-shifting bell, raised printing, tiny printed words in tiny spots, and more. Note: actual bills will not have a "specimen" watermark as this picture has. Take a tour of the differences at NewMoney, a government website devoted to US currency. Link -via J-Walk Blog

Our money keeps getting uglier and uglier. This is the ugliest yet. It's time for a complete redesign. I suggest looking at Canadian currency for inspiration.

US currency comes storming into the 20th century.

Thing I do not understand is why are all bills the same colour and the same size?

Blind people use size to denote bill value , visually impaired use colour and size.

Here in Australia the notes are bright colours different sizes and plastic.

All of these features help when you are blind drunk.
