Federal Reserve to redesign the $100 bill

The Federal Reserve Board on Wednesday announced that the redesigned $100 note will begin circulating on Oct. 8, 2013.


The new bills, which will incorporate new security features such as a blue, 3-D security ribbons, will be easier for the public to authenticate but more difficult for counterfeiters to replicate, the Fed said.

The new design for the $100 note was unveiled in 2010, but its introduction was postponed following an unexpected production delay. To ensure a smooth transition to the redesigned note when it begins circulating in October, the U.S. Currency Education Program is reaching out to businesses and consumers around the world to raise awareness about the new design and inform them about how to use its security features.
