The new bill has a set a new features that will make it much harder for counterfeiters to copy. One of the features includes a setting called Motion, where each bill will contain up to 650,000 microlenses embedded in the printing which will allow for the underlying image to shift when the bill is moved. Moving money? Dope!

– Portrait watermark

– Security Thread

– Color-shifting “100″
