It won’t have Ronald Reagan on it, but the New $100 Federal Reserve Note that will be introduced April 21 in the Cash Room of the Treasury Building in Washington, D.C. will likely grab the public’s attention by being more colorful than its predecessor note.
Officials are tight-lipped about what the new note will look like, but the list of dignitaries that will officially unveil it underscores the importance of the $100 bill to the world’s economy.
Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner will be joined by Federal Reserve Chairman Benjamin Bernanke and Treasurer of the United States Rosie Rios.
The facsimile signatures of Geithner and Rios will appear on the new $100, as they have on Series 2009 paper money.
Images of the $100 and information about the new security features used in it will be posted online at 10:30 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time at the conclusion of the half-hour ceremony at www.newmoney.gov.
