Yeah I thought they were going to tell us but I can't find anything telling the color. If they must change the green back then I hope one of the colors they choose is purple.

Public Won't See New $20 Bill Until May

People will have to wait a little longer to see Andrew Jackson's new look on the redesigned $20 bill.

The updated bill, which carries an image of the seventh president, will be shown to the public for the first in May rather than at the end of March as planned.

With the United States on the brink of war in Iraq, heightened security in the United States and other concerns led to the postponement even though the new bill is ready.

"Treasury and Federal Reserve officials on Tuesday formally unveiled the design for a revamped and more colorful $20 bill, as the United States attempts to stay ahead of ever more sophisticated counterfeiters."

"The most significant new feature in the currency redesign will be the introduction of new subtle background colors to the predominantly green and off-white bills. The presentation of some buildings and portraits will also be changed."

"For the $20 bill, the new design includes a faint blue eagle in the background and a metallic green eagle and shield to the right of the portrait of Andrew Jackson on the front of the note."

Good for them. Obviously this won't STOP counterfeiters but if it'll make it more of a pain for them to do their thing, I'm all for it. Having millions in funny money floating around does nothing to help the value of our currency, and only screws the consumer in the long run.

I wonder if they will change the material that the notes are made of.

Our notes are made of a sort of plastic polymer, they don't age and don't break.

I am told that if you put them in the micrwave they shrink

However the plastic nature of the notes means that every note you get feels newish and clean, and there are no torn notes. Its a good step forward.

In terms of security...our notes are smothered in holographic images...clear panels....a multitude of colours etc.....I rarely here of counterfeit operations in australia... It's a positive move for the yanks.. Long time coming I reckon.

At the very least you guys will know your giving over a 20 and not a tunner or something like that! heh

Australian currency is printed on a thin, flexible polymer (i.e. plastic). The polymer notes are fairly new - The Australian Mint is currently in the process of replacing all paper money with polymer.







You guys have some cool looking money! How flexible is it?

Here's ours


yeah thats true QS, we are so wired for electronic money here that I never get more than $20 out at a time for pocket money.

All my purchases are done via eftpos transactions in the shop and eftpos is so demanded that shops have to get it to keep customers.

I only go to a bank about 1 or twice a year, I manage my accounts over the phone with an automated program, and can check it on the net as well.

Each month I get a bank statement showing exactly the shops I went to and purchased goods - we have fun playing "OK who spent $40 in the #$#@ cafe again!"

If you were paranoid it would be frightening.
