The redesigned $100 bill will sport several new security features designed to thwart counterfeiters, including a blue 3-D security ribbon, according to the Federal Reserve. The security ribbon is designed to be easy for laypeople to verify but extremely hard for counterfeiters to reproduce.
"We made numerous process changes to address the creasing issue and we are back in full production," Dawn Haley, a spokeswoman for the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, told the Associated Press.
Other new security features on the redesigned $100 bill include a holographic image of a disappearing Liberty Bell inside an inkwell. Like the blue security strip, the disappearing image is designed to make the $100 bill much harder to counterfeit and easier for consumers to recognize as legitimate.
