WASHINGTON (4/25/13)--The Federal Reserve Board Wednesday announced that a redesigned $100 note will begin circulating Oct. 8.

The note, which incorporates new security features such as a blue, three-dimensional security ribbon, will be easier for the public to authenticate but more difficult for counterfeiters to replicate, the Fed said.

The new design was unveiled in 2010, but its introduction was postponed following a production delay.

To ensure a smooth transition to the redesigned note when it begins circulating, the U.S. Currency Education Program is reaching out to businesses and consumers worldwide to raise awareness about the new design and inform them about how to use its security features.
