US Currency is seen in this January 30, 2001 image. The Federal Reserve will unveil a redesigned $100 bill Tuesday.

The new $100 dollar bill goes into circulation Tuesday. Benjamin Franklin will still preside prominently on the note, but there are many changes. The bill will feel different. It will feature “raised printing,” which will give the bill a distinct texture.

There will be a dashed blue strip to the left of Franklin’s face. It is part of enhancing security features to prevent fraud. There is a “100” label in the lower right corner of the bill. The color of the label alternates between cooper and green when the bill is tilted.

What do you think of the new $100 dollar bill? If you could change the currency, what changes would you make?
