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.

The US is always behind the rest of the world in currency techology. They generally let others test things out before moving to them.

This bill has all the same security features Canadian bills had 10 years ago and now we're moving on to polymer bills. I expect the UK is already talking about switching. The rest of Europe will probably follow shortly. The US will have them in about 10 years I assume.
