US $100 bill goes high-tech


The U.S. greenback continues to be a popular currency for travelers. To help protect everyone from counterfeit money, the US $100 bill has had a major high-tech makeover.

Two New Security Features:

A Blue 3-D Security Ribbon on the Front
Tilt the note back and forth and focus on the blue ribbon – the bells change to 100s as they move.

Tilt the note back and forth, the bells and 100s move side to side. Tilt side to side, they move up and down.
The ribbon is woven into the paper, not printed.

Bell in the Inkwell
Look for an image of a color-shifting bell, inside a copper-colored inkwell.

Tilt it to see the bell change from copper to green, an effect which makes the bell seem to appear and disappear within the inkwell.
