U.S. Government to Unveil New $100 Note

A newly designed $100 note will be unveiled on Wednesday, April 21 during a ceremony at the Department of the Treasury's Cash Room.

The $100 note is the highest value denomination of U.S. currency in general circulation, and it circulates broadly around the world.

Present at the unveiling will be:

Secretary of the Treasury Timothy Geithner

Chairman of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System Ben Bernanke

Treasurer of the United States Rosie Rios

Director of the United States Secret Service Mark Sullivan

The Treasury has not released any further details, other than that it will contain further anti-counterfeiting measures. Obviously, concern exists that the private sector has been competing with Treasury printing operations.
