The New $100 Bill: Colorful and Counterfeit-Proof

The US Department of the Treasury unveiled the new $100 bill today. This most colorful of bills features updated details, including a 3-D security ribbon and a holographic bell in the inkwell, that will make it harder to counterfeit. The Treasury Dept. has created a fun interactive video that lets you explore the new $100 bill in detail. The $100 bill was last updated in 1996.

I shudder to think what the Treasury spent creating this pretty new bill, but then again, it sure beats the new penny they unveiled a couple of years back.
