Were you aware that the $100 dollar bill is the most commonly counterfeited currency outside the United States?Most of us may not have known this as we carry very little cash in our wallets.

Today, the Federal Reserve releases the new C-note in the hope of thwarting counterfeiters. The $100 bill will still have Benjamin Franklin on the front and Philadelphia's Independence Hall on the back.

However, the changes that I liked were the disappearing Liberty Bell inside an inkwell and a blue 3-D security ribbon that wraps around the bill. I can't wait to compare the differences from the old $100 dollar bill to the new one.

So depending on the delivery time to your local bank, maybe you will be one of the first to view this bill first hand via your wallet!
