The Federal Reserve will begin circulating a redesigned $100 bill this fall.
October 8 is the expected release date for the redesigned note, which was originally planned for February ... 2011. Production issues tabled that for a long time.
Unwanted creases during printing shelved the bill for over two years, but the U.S. Mint says that issue has been resolved, so the revamped $100 is a go.
The new $100 bill incorporates a host of colors and added security features, such as a blue, 3-D security ribbon and a disappearing Liberty Bell in an inkwell.
The features are designed to thwart counterfeiters, who will eventually figure out ways to beat them like always. Oh well.
At least it looks pretty freaking cool.
