$10 dollar redesignThe $10 dollar bill will be getting a redesign, following the recent redesign of the $20 and the $50. There’s going to be more color to the usually greenback. The new bill will have the color orange, yellow and red added to it. Later on in the future you will be carrying a workout art fit to be display in a museum if they keep adding colors to the bill. Actually I think the bill looks a little cool with its blend of red intertwine with the usual green. All this color changes to stay one step ahead of the counterfeiters, I remember when you can use a scanner and a color printer to print your own money.

…the $10 bill included the red torch on Hamilton’s left and the phrase “We the people” in red on Hamilton’s right. The background is a subtle shade of orange and there are small yellow 10s surrounding the torch.

Other security features that are included, some of which were first introduced in the 1990s during an earlier makeover, include a plastic security thread woven into the note that repeats “USA Ten” in tiny print. There is also a watermark that can be seen when the bill is held up to the light and color-shifting ink that makes the numeral “10” in the lower right-hand corner on the face of the bill change color from copper to green when the bill is tilted.

Officials promised that America’s currency will undergo makeovers every seven to 10 years to keep ahead of counterfeiters armed with the latest advances in computer technology that make digital counterfeiting easier.
