Redesigned $100 bill coming this month
U.S.- The newly redesigned $100 is about to debut.
The Federal Reserve Board says the new currency will begin circulating starting Tuesday October 8.
It includes new security features.
Among them, a blue 3-D security ribbon that will make it easier for people to authenticate. And harder for counterfeiters to replicate.
This is the fourth time the $100 bill has been redesigned, according to a Fed spokeswoman. It has been revamped three times in the last 20 years alone, as the Fed had to react more often to improved counterfeiting technology.
