Evolution of the $100 Dollar Bill
Author: Daniel Guidotti
October 8, 2013 marked the release of Ben Franklin's modified updates to include advanced, security features intended to thwart counterfeiting.
Such revamped features of the new $100 note include a blue security ribbon, consisting of hundreds of thousands of microlenses used to determine the note's authenticity. Additionally, the new $100 bill features a copper-colored inkwell. Inside the inkwell is a Liberty Bell, which changes from copper to green (depending on your perspective).
Furthermore, the new $100 also features raised printing, microprinting, and a complete, cosmetic redesign that effectively couples aesthetics with high-security assurance.
