Printing delays dragged the circulation date til Fall 2013

A new $100 bill -- which will offer advanced security features -- will finally begin circulating this October.

The new bill will have enhanced security feautures, such as A three-dimensional, blue security ribbon. The idea is to make the bill easier to authenticate, but more difficult for counterfeiters to recreate.


The $100 bill was originally introduced in 2010, but circulation was delayed due to a malfunction in the printing process. 

The bill will officially start circulating on October 8, 2013.

Time to get rid of cash.

$100 bills seem to be mostly used by druggies and tax avoiders. Withdraw all bills over $10 and after a few years declare all those bills worthless to gather in the cash economy skivers.

Considering that the $20 is (at least here in Canada) the most popular denomination by a massively overwhelming margin, withdrawing everything over $10 seems silly.
