Federal Reserve Board issues redesigned $100 note

The Federal Reserve Board 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.

A statement posted on newmoney.org quoted the Federal Reserve Board Governor, Jerome Powell, as saying, “The new design incorporates security features that make it easier to authenticate, but harder to replicate.

“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, United States Department of the Treasury, US Bureau of Engraving and Printing, and US 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 US government policy that all designs of US currency remain legal tender, regardless of when they were issued.
