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.

Canada is in the process of rolling out the 'plastic money'.

Personally I am not too fond of it :

1. Does not crease as readily as rag-based money. I like to fold my bills with the face side out. This is not so easy to do with poly-money.

2. Since the bills don't crease easily they also don't wrinkle so easy. You have to be really a lot more careful not to hand out two (or more) bills stuck together. You need pretty sticky fingers to separate them. Get used to 'flicking' your bills between your fingers to make sure you don't overpay (more than normal) for that starbuck's coffee.

3. Polymer bills are really, really thin. It is not as easy as rag-based money to feel that you have more than one bill in your hand. Rag based money is thicker and when more than one bill is stacked, the difference in thickness is easier to detect by feel alone -- a must for those that are sight-challenged.
