The “Benjamin” Evolution – The Redesign of the $100 BillOctober 25th, 2013
The revamped version of the 100-dollar bill made its first appearance on October 8, 2013, and is the latest, redesigned denomination of U.S. currency. Believe it or not, a decade of research and development went into the new note’s advanced, security features.
To pay homage to this modern take on an original classic, we’ve highlighted some of Benjamin’s most recent modifications, as bulleted below!
* 3-D Security Ribbon
* Bell in the Inkwell
* Portrait Watermark
* Security Thread
* Marked Symbols of Freedom
* Portrait/Vignette Design
* Color Scheme

Such safety features offer a simple, subtle way to verify the note’s authenticity, and reduce your risk of falling victim to counterfeit currency schemes.
