$5 Bill Gets A Makeover

Due to the high frequency in which $5 bills were being bleached to counterfeit $100... the $5 bill has been given a makeover! The new bill will feature splashes of grey and purple. The new note will start printing next week in Fort Worth, Texas. They are expecting to put $1.5 billion in circulation.

The next bill to get a makeover will be the $100. It will feature the most advanced safeguard yet, a new security thread composed of 650,000 tiny lenses that will magnify micro-printing on the bills to give the effect of having the images move in the opposite direction than the bill is being moved.
