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.

If the US government can spend money like it's not real, what makes it so much worse if a counterfeiter does it?

IMO, it's irrelevant in the bigger picture. Large pro organizations doing counterfeiting can still make a passable polymer bill and if anything when you change the currency that is an opportunity for counterfeiters to sweep the nation with fake bills because people aren't yet familiar enough with the new currency format and just assume what they see is what it is supposed to look like.
