Stop The Press!: US Mint Rolling Out New Anti-Counterfeit $100's Early Next Year

April 21, 2010


I honestly don't think I've ever even seen a $100 bill in real life, but maybe you have. Maybe you carry a rubberbanded roll of them around in your pocket. Hey you can admit it, I won't get jealous. Jesus, you really do? GIMME ALL YOUR MONEY OR I'LL CUT YOU!

There are a number of security features in the redesigned $100 note, including two new features, the 3-D Security Ribbon and the Bell in the Inkwell. These security features are easy for consumers and merchants to use to authenticate their currency.

The blue 3-D Security Ribbon on the front of the new $100 note contains images of bells and 100s that move and change from one to the other as you tilt the note. The Bell in the Inkwell on the front of the note is another new security feature. The bell changes color from copper to green when the note is tilted, an effect that makes it seem to appear and disappear within the copper inkwell.

There's a video unveiling of the new bill after the jump, which I used as my inspiration for drawing a new $1 billion bill with my face on it. And it has catchy slogans like, "PEW PEW PEW!" and, "IN ROBOTS WE DON'T TRUST". Plus if you hold it up to the light there's a dinosaur! It's real classy, but just risque enough to pleasure yourself to if you can't find a National Geographic. Which was my intention.

Hit it for the patriotic unveiling.

Thanks to Stephen, Melissa and horny toad, who got so much cash they gotta keep it in Hefty bags. Nice guys, but I'd bury them in the yard if I were you.
