The US Mint is going crazy! Have you seen the new quarters, nickels, golden dollar coins, and rainbow-colored bills?
A golden dollar coin!
Nickels with a new look have been released since April 2003, to remember the Lewis and Clark expedition. The Westward Journey Nickel series ended in January, 2006.
Have you been watching your quarters? Fifty new state quarters were issued over a 10-year time span, ending in 2008.
We have several new dollar coins. One, a golden dollar coin, shows an American Indian woman named Sacagawea, carrying her baby on her back.
You can't miss the new colorful bills. All the new bills have rainbow colors and are hard to copy.
New color for the new $10
When you visit your credit union, ask to see a new $10 bill. This and the other new bills are safer, smarter, and more secure.
Look at the different background colors on the new $10 bill. They must have had a fashion designer pick them: orange, yellow and red!
These colors make the new bill harder for dishonest people to counterfeit, or make fake money with the intent to use it.
Did you miss the large number "10" on the lower right corner on the back of each bill?
You still will easily be able to tell the difference between a new $10 and a new $20—the background colors for the $20 are peach and green.
