Yahoo! News reports that the new $100 bill is the last of the U.S. currency to receive a makeover in a process that began in 2003. It's taken designers 10 years to iron out all the kinks in the $100 bill, but they believe it's now ready to go.
The new bill will feature a whole host of new security features including a bright blue, three-dimensional security ribbon that features hundreds of thousands of micro-lenses that will reflect images in the “opposite direction from the way the bill is being tilted.”
It's important to note that the $900 billion worth of $100 bills that are currently in circulation will remain in circulation until they are worn-out. So, you could see the old bills well into the next decade.
Reports indicate that some banks will have the new $100 bills in hand on Tuesday, depending on how far they are from the Federal Reserve, and that some of those bills could be worth thousands of dollars; depending on their serial numbers.
