[Best Syndication News] There will be a new $100 bill released by the Federal Reserve starting on February 10, 2011. The new hundred dollar bill money design will have two new security features that aim to stop counterfeiters.

The new US currency design for the $100 denomination was a collaborative effort between the US Treasury Department, the Board of Governors, the US Secret Service, and the Federal Reserve System.

The older $100 bills still in circulation will still be accepted as legal tender and those that have the older bills will not have to turn them in to exchange for the newer currency.

The new security features include a 3-D Security Ribbon on the front which contains images of bells that move and change when the money is rotated. There is also a bill in the inkwell on the front of the $100 bill that will change from copper to green when the money is turned at a different angle. The bell almost seems to disappear and reappear when doing this.

The $100 bill redesign has been worked on for over a decade. The Us Treasury will educate people of the changes over the next year because the changes of the bill is considerably different that the previous one.
