It’s been a few years since the bill was first announced (the treasury was having some issues with it), but now the newly designed $100 bills as shown above will be going into circulation today… With all it’s sexy security updates and all :) Which include:
- Portrait watermark
- Security thread
- Color-Shifting 100
- Raised printing
- Gold 100
So don’t any of you ballers get any funny ideas! It’s not as easy to fake these like those racketeer coins we were talking about yesterday ;) If any of you come across these in the real world now though, please let us know! It’s always fun seeing new currency in circulation… And I hear if you can find serial #1 you may be able to make some dough off it!

That’s pretty crazy… Here’s what the last two $100 bills looked like for comparison btw:
Personally I prefer the old school design a lot more, but I suppose you’ve gotta keep up with the times… If you want to learn more about these new guys, here’s the official website on ’em: http://www.newmoney.gov/
