I never realized the Treasury Department had theme music

I’m sure Dr. Long will have more to say on the new $100 bill shortly, but in the meantime I wanted to share this delightful video from the Treasury Department:

It’s wonderful, isn’t it? The music is so stirring, and it’s fun to watch the bill spin and swoop all over the place (though it did put me in mind of those warnings not to fold, spindle, or mutilate).

The list of features included in the new bill is impressive:

  • Blue 3-D Security Ribbon
  • The Bell in the Inkwell
  • Portrait Watermark
  • Security Thread
  • Color-shifting 100
  • Quill Pen (not sure that’s a security feature, but it’s pretty)

It seems the only thing the Treasury Department can’t put on the currency is a woman.
