- Blue, three-dimensional security ribbon – As you tilt the bill back and forth, the bells in the blue ribbon will change to 100s. The images will also move back and forth if you tilt the bill side to side and vice versa.
- Bell in the inkwell – The new bill also includes a color-shifting bell inside the copper-colored inkwell; as you tilt the bill, the bell changes from copper to green.
- Portrait watermark – There is a new Benjamin on the $100 bill. In addition to the primary image of Benjamin Franklin, an additional Benjamin Franklin watermark can be found in the blank space to the right of his portrait.
- Raised printing – Benjamin Franklin now comes with added texture. As you move your finger up and down his right shoulder (your left), you will feel a rough texture.
