It was just a few years ago that we got the first look at the shiny, new $100 bill. Now, after production setbacks, BFrank is ready for his closeup. The new $100 bills are set to hit banks in early October, more than two years after the original February 2011 distribution date.
It seems like just yesterday that greenbacks were pulled out of circulation in favor of big faced, colorful bills designed to make counterfeiting more difficult. If youâ€™re lucky enough to still be seeing Benjamins on a regular basis, you may notice a bit more bling on your buck. Obviously someone at the Federal Reserve got the message about bright colors, patterns and prints having a positive effect on the economy.
