Meet the new Benjamin. Starting October 8 a new $100 bill is going into circulation with a wide array of new security features.

The new note is aimed at combating counterfeiters, including a blue, 3-D security ribbon on the front of the bill that moves when the note is tilted back and forth and side to side.

The inkwell and bell on the front of the bill and the number 100 on the right-hand corner also change from copper to green when the note is tilted.

I'm more likely to trip out staring at this bill than spend it. That's on the rare occasion I get one in my possession.
