Remember when our money used to just be green?  These days our $5 bills are covered in purple, our 10s are covered in red, our 20s are in blue, and no one really has 50s anymore so I don't remember what color they use.

 

And now, our $100 bills are about to be covered in GOLD.

 

The Federal Reserve just released the first images of the brand new $100 bills, which will go into circulation this October.

 

They've still got BEN FRANKLIN on the front.  But now there's a light gold quill and a shiny gold inkwell next to him.  The bottom-right "100" on the front is also embossed in gold.

 

And on the back, the bill looks TOTALLY different.  A gold-colored "100" runs along the entire right side.  The bill also has a blue, 3-D security strip across the front.

 

The changes aren't JUST to make the bills look more ostentatious . . . they're also supposed to help cut down on counterfeiting.  The $100 bill is one of the most counterfeited bills in the world.

 

This is only the fourth design for the $100 bill . . . but three of those redesigns have happened in the past 20 years as counterfeiters have gotten more technologically advanced.  (CNN Money)
