New $100 Bill Released by U.S. Treasury
in its continual effort to thwart counterfeiters, the United States Treasury has revamped the $100 bill. The Treasury introduced a new se- curity feature on the bill entitled Motion, which embeds over half a million microlenses that shift a wa- termarked image - in this case, the portrait of Benjamin Franklin - on the bill when it’s moved from side to side or up and down.
Ben Franklin’s portrait will be joined by a small image of the lib- erty Bell, which, in addition to the “100” on the bill, will also color shift. The Treasury expects to imple- ment a security thread and a 3-D se- curity ribbon that will be woven into the bill, rather than just printed on it.
Federal chairman of the Reserve Ben Bernanke commented on the bill’s facelift: “This note incorporates the best technology available to en- sure we’re staying ahead of counter-
feiters.” The $100 bill has long been a favorite of foreign counterfeiters.
although the bill was originally expected to debut in 2008, the time-
frame was elongated to allow for ad- ditional security enhancements. The new bill is expected to be released on February 11, 2011.
