U.S. Fed Unveil New $100 Bill

100-Bill

While the Federal Reserve’s new $100 bills will be a counterfeiter’s nightmare, the redesigned C-notes sound like a stoner’s delight. Yes, they’ll still feature Ben Franklin. The note features a series of amped-up security measures aimed at combating counterfeiters, including a blue, 3-D security ribbon on the front of the bill that moves when the note is tilted back and forth and side to side. The inkwell and bell on the front of the bill and the number 100 on the right-hand corner also change from copper to green when the note is tilted. This is the fourth time the $100 bill has been redesigned, according to a Fed spokeswoman. It has been revamped three times in the last 20 years alone, as the Fed had to react more often to improved counterfeiting technology. The bill is set to debut on Oct. 8th
