A redesigned Benjamin will be coming to banks near you Oct. 8. It's a little more colorful and has improved security features.

The Federal Reserve will begin issuing a new version of the $100 bill this fall, the first update since 1996.

The redesigned bill includes a vertical blue stripe with an embedded image. When you tilt or twist the bill, you’ll see tiny numerals and Liberty Bell designs that seem to move across the striped surface. This requires each bill to contain thousands of tiny lenses, says The Associated Press.

There’s also a big yellow inkwell pot, which from certain angles reveals another hidden Liberty Bell.

Both security features are easier for the average person to spot, and harder to counterfeit than previous ones.

The new bills were supposed to arrive two years ago, but production issues held things up. The blue security ribbon is not precisely the same thickness as the rest of the bill, which was causing unwanted creases.

The bill will be arriving Oct. 8, and of course the old version will still be accepted everywhere. You can play with a digital version of the new design (and those of other recently changed bills) at NewMoney.gov. The $1 bill won’t be getting a makeover, the AP says.

You can hear more about the new features in the video below, in addition to watching a whole lot of new money being printed.
