There is a new $100 bill in town. The bill was supposed to be in banks in 2011. The new bill has several features designed making it more difficult for counterfeiters to replicate. Feature include a blue, 3-D security ribbon, as well as color-shifting ink that changes from copper to green when the note is tilted. That ink can be found on a large “100″ on the back of the bill, on one of the “100′s” on the front, and on a new image of an ink well that’s also on the front. The image of Benjamin Franklin will be the same as on the current bill, but it will no longer be surrounded by an dark oval.
The $100 bill is the second most common bill in circulation behind only the $1 bill.
