The latest issue of Coin World showed the new design for the $100 FRN (above, compared to the current, below). About a dozen shots of the printing and details, too. I commented to the young miss that they’re giving counterfeiters ten months notice to get their act together. Cue adolescent eye roll.
When I was a kid, I liked my forays into Canada and the colors of their paper money: $1 green, $2 rose, $5 blue, $10 purple. In the seventies, they started printing bills with rainbow spots and swirls and stuff. Bad news is the old white guys who replaced the queen on some bills. (I’m still in favor of returning the goddess of liberty to American money.) Athena is another possibility, like on the $50 commemorative, left.
Anybody see any 2010 cents or quarters yet? What do you think of the shield or Hot Springs, Arkansas?
