High rollers will now be able to use newly designed one hundred dollar bills -- which will go into circulation October 8. Currency is primarily redesigned to stay ahead of counterfeiting threats, with the last $100 note redesigned for circulation in March, 1996. Anti-counterfeiting features include a blue three-dimensional security ribbon and alternating images of bells and the number 100 that move and change as the viewing angle is tilted. A bell image inside a picture of an inkwell changes from copper to green. The old bills will still work -- but as they make their way through the banking system, they will eventually be returned to the Fed, where they will be destroyed.
