New U.S. $5 Bill Will Make Digital Debut on Sept. 20

For the first time, a redesigned denomination of U.S. currency will be digitally unveiled when a new $5 bill design is revealed on Sept. 20. Officials from The Department of the Treasury, Federal Reserve Board, Bureau of Engraving and Printing and U.S. Secret Service will host the virtual event on its official public education Website,

The new $5 bill design, which will be issued and enter circulation in early 2008, incorporates enhanced security features, subtle background colors and images of American symbols of freedom.

Representatives from the U.S. government will unveil the new $5 bill to the public for the first time at 9:00 a.m. EST. An online "reporter only" Q&A will follow at 9:30 a.m.

In order to stay ahead of counterfeiting, the U.S. government continues to redesign our currency. Decisions about the redesign of each denomination are guided by the government's close evaluation of the range of ongoing counterfeit threats, whether from digital technology or sophisticated offset printing presses.

The $100 bill will be the next denomination to be redesigned after the $5 bill is issued in early 2008. The government has no plans to redesign the $1 and $2 bills.
