Back at Christmas, I was in a store in the mall and happen to be standing there when the cashier spotted a counterfeit $100 bill in the drawer. The thing looked exactly like a real $100 until the ink started to smear. Counterfeiting of the $100 is a big problem at home and around the world.

To stop counterfeiters the US mint is getting set to launch a new $100 in February of 2011 that uses some new high tech security features. The new bill will have a 3-D security ribbon with images of bells and 100s that move from one to the other as you move the note around.

The font of the bill also has a Bell in the inkwell on the front of the note that changes from copper to green when the bill is moved. The new bill also has the same security features as the older $100 bills. Those older bills will remain in circulation. It hardly seems like a new bill will stop counterfeiting if the old bills already being copied are still being used.
