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.

Cash by the Pound

leave a comment »

I can remember visiting the B.E.P. in Washington D.C. when I was a teen.  My Father was a true patriot and this was one of many family vacations that had us blazing from state to state.  Destinations included Civil War Battlefields, National Parks, and of course our Nations Capital.  I remember the tour vividly and also remember being able to buy a bag of shredded cash at the gift shop.  Well things might be very different these days, but you can still get your shredded cash. The Bureau of Engraving and Printing offers 5lb bags of Shredded U.S. Currency. This bag contains approximately $10,000 worth of Shredded U.S. currency notes.  Judging from the photo below, it looks like the gift shops at the various Federal Reserve Banks are in on it as well.

leave a comment »

The April report came early and I’ve done the math and checked it twice.  The total for the Eastern Facility is $9,078,400,000, which included 3.2 million one dollar star notes, and a boat load of $100 Notes.  The total for the Western Facility is $3,276,800,000, which included ones, fives, and fifties.  The yearly total dollar amount printed by the B.E.P. comes to $46,250,079,979.  As always, keep in mind I don’t have the figures of the currency that is retired and shredded.
