The new $100 bill features advanced anti-counterfeiting techniques – including misleading numbers.

In its continuing battle against counterfeiters, the U.S. Treasury is introducing a new $100 bill that not only contains advanced technology, but psychological devices as well. The new multi-colored bill, available at banks today, features Benjamin Franklin, a metal-infused anti-copying strip, a tiny RFID computer chip embedded in the paper, silk threads, unreproduceable paper, and ultra-tiny lines that foil photography. But the biggest change is in the corners of the bill – instead of featuring the number 100 as on all previous $100 bills, the new one features the number 50. “This is the ultimate counterfeiting subterfuge,” a Treasury spokesman said. “Even if a person somehow manages to copy the bill exactly, he’ll still get only $50 for it. The Treasury is considering putting misleading amounts on all U.S. currency from this point on.”
