Meet the New $100 Note

leave a comment »

Federal Reserve Announces Day of Issue of Redesigned $100 NoteThe Federal Reserve Board on Wednesday announced that the redesigned $100 note will begin circulating on October 8, 2013. This note, which incorporates new security features such as a blue, 3-D security ribbon, will be easier for the public to authenticate but more difficult for counterfeiters to replicate.

The new design for the $100 note was unveiled in 2010, but its introduction was postponed following an unexpected production delay. To ensure a smooth transition to the redesigned note when it begins circulating in October, the U.S. Currency Education Program is reaching out to businesses and consumers around the world to raise awareness about the new design and inform them about how to use its security features. More information about the new design $100 note, as well as training and educational materials, can be found at www.newmoney.gov.

Federation Credit

In these ever tougher economic times, we hear lots of talk about how there are no real jobs, how its hard to make real money, whether we can expect a rise in real incomes and so on. Well, here’s a look at money that doesn’t even pretend to be real.

In the Star Trek universe, Federation credits are mentioned a few times as a unit of currency, but never actually seen. Sometimes it’s inferred that money itself is no longer used in the bright future overseen by the United Federation of Planets. On other occasions, some goods and services are said to cost a certain number of credits, while some alien planets seem to have their own monetary systems. Here’s an artist impression of what Federation currency might look like.
