New Money!

It looks like the 5 dollar bill has had a little cosmetic surgery. The new 5 features an enlarged "5" printed in high-contrast purple ink in the lower right corner of the back of the bill. To the naked eye, the most notable difference is color — splashes of light purple at the center of the bill that blend into gray near the edges.

The new bill goes into circulation today. Abraham Lincoln, the nation's 16th president, is still on the front and the Lincoln Memorial remains on the back.

Don’t Panic! You can still use the “old” $5. I wonder how much it cost to give the $5 it’s makeover…since the value of the U.S.dollar has dropped and all. I’m just sayin’…
