This is the new US $100 bill that took ten years to develop
The Federal Reserve will begin circulating a new US$100 bill Tuesday with some modern and colourful anti-counterfeiting features
The Federal Reserve will begin circulating a new US$100 bill Tuesday with some modern and colourful anti-counterfeiting features, after overcoming problems that postponed its debut for more than 2 1/2 years.
In addition to traditional safeguards like a paper blend that would be difficult to duplicate, the redesigned note will have two new features: a three-dimensional blue strip with images that appear to move when the note is tilted, and an image of a copper inkwell containing a holographic bell whose colour changes when tilted.

The note is the final U.S. currency denomination to undergo the “New Color of Money” face-lift that started with the US$20 note in 2003, introducing subtle hues and other security features to paper currency as part of efforts to stay ahead of counterfeiters. (Photo: Mark Wilson/Getty Images)
