New "high tech" $100 on the way!

The new $100 bill: Same old face, with some high-tech tweaks meant to thwart counterfeiters.

After a three-year hiatus due to production delays, Americans will finally be getting the new $100 bill in their ATMs and bank accounts on October 8, the Federal Reserve said Wednesday.

The new bill will have several features the Fed says will make life difficult for counterfeiters, but should help retailers identify fakes.

They lie! I've tilted my screen every which way, and none of those things change colour like they're supposed to. :grumpy:

There are ATMs that dispense Franklins? I've never gotten one myself. Maybe it's because I never withdraw more than $200.

Does Ben Franklin look a bit more impatient? Annoyed? Disappointed, even?
