New $100 bill

We knew it was coming, in fact we've known about if for some years - and now it's finally here, the new $100 bill with added security features - and colour! The more colourful notes were first introduced in the US some years ago and now you'll see all notes with a little more on them than just green (a boon to the partially sighted and us tourists alike believe me), it was inevitable that the $100 would follow suit and the added security features discussed here were inevitable considering the amount of money involved.

It's funny to think that in the UK we really don't like £50 notes yet the Americans are quite happy to use a note worth far more than £50 everyday!
