The Federal Reserve released a new high tech $100 today, two years after its planned release. Some of the safety measures included on the bill are a 3-D security ribbon, color-shifting ink, and an ink well that changes to reveal the Liberty Bell.

Surprisingly, the $100 is the most commonly circulated bill behind the $1 bill, with about 8.6 billion of them in circulation.

The Federal Reserve was able to continue the roll-out of the new bills despite the government shutdown because, as CNN Money puts it, “their budget is not included in the current congressional appropriations stalemate.”

Watch the video below to meet the sexy new $100 bill. How do you think it looks?
