Federal Reserve Announces Day of Issue of Redesigned $100 Note

The Federal Reserve Board on Wednesday announced that the redesigned $100 note will begin circulating on October 8, 2013. This note, which incorporates new security features such as a blue, 3-D security ribbon, will be easier for the public to authenticate but more difficult for counterfeiters to replicate.

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. More information about the new design $100 note, as well as training and educational materials, can be found at www.newmoney.gov.

US money is still dreadfully utilitarian and boring.
I think it's high time to do a complete redesign of US currency (except the $1 and $2.  I kinda like those because they're classic.)

Wow, finally after a 3 year delay. It took them 9 years to issue the full redesign from 2004!

Federal Reserve Board Issues Redesigned $100 Note

The Federal Reserve on Tuesday began supplying financial institutions with a redesigned $100 note that incorporates new security features to deter counterfeiters and help businesses and consumers tell whether a note is genuine.

Distance, demand, and the policies of individual financial institutions will influence how quickly the redesigned notes reach businesses and consumers around the world.

“The new design incorporates security features that make it easier to authenticate, but harder to replicate,” said Federal Reserve Board Governor Jerome H. Powell. “As the new note transitions into daily transactions, the user-friendly security features will allow the public to more easily verify its authenticity.”

The Federal Reserve, U.S. Department of the Treasury, U.S. Bureau of Engraving and Printing, and the U.S. Secret Service partner to redesign Federal Reserve notes to stay ahead of counterfeiting threats.

The redesigned $100 note includes two new security features: a blue 3-D security ribbon with images of bells and 100s, and a color-changing bell in an inkwell. The new features, and additional features retained from the previous design, such as a watermark, offer the public a simple way to visually authenticate the redesigned $100 note.

Consumers worldwide are advised that it is not necessary to trade in older-design $100 notes for new ones. It is U.S. government policy that all designs of U.S. currency remain legal tender, regardless of when they were issued.

For more information about the new design $100 note, as well as training and educational materials, visit www.newmoney.gov.

eBay is going crazy over these right now. At first I thought it was foreign collectors driving up the bids, but no,  This seller is getting $300 for one of them and he only ships to the US.  :o

Just picked up the new $100 US bill from a local bank.

Very different in terms of the feel, colour and of course the security feature.

It is dated 2009.

The tellers seem to think that they will only be getting the new $100 notes.

Wonder what paper money would say if it could talk?

Local bank in Canada? Wow, that is surprising. I was expecting that it would be quite a while before these made it to banks on this side of the border.

I've heard reports of additional new notes at a bank in Brantford.  I'll check with my bank when I get there today.

Banks in downtown Toronto have them too. Nice looking note, the Motion thread is revealed like no other note with the same feature.

I think they pretty much just destroyed all of the initially printed notes, which had the "J" prefix with Series 2009. The "K" notes were the 2006A old ones they had to print to meet demand, and now all we're seeing are "L" prefix notes.

Apparently the paper is separating from the security thread though (though I haven't been able to do so on mine):

Funnily enough lots of American banks still don't have them, even in big cities such as San Francisco or Los Angeles.

Picked up a new $100 US bill from a bank in a small town in upper NY state south of Cornwall. Teller was ho-hum about it. I would be surprised if this is still a novelty.

FYI...

I believe a saw a documentary on US Notes and they mentioned that over 80% (or it was a high number) of US $100 notes are used/shipped outside the USA.

ie:  They mostly dump the $100 notes to currency exchanges/banks outside of the US.   

So I am not surprised to see we have them already.

Everytime I get a large sum of US $$ from the bank here I can never get small denominations.  They always have piles of $50's and $100's though.

Bought some American money for a trip to Raleigh, and look what the teller handed me.  Finally!!!

The effect on the holographic strip is subtle and different that the holographic strip on the Journey notes.

I also got some LD-A notes from my local bank yesterday.  They had some more earlier in the week as well, I'm told.
