To stay ahead of currency counterfeiters, the U.S. government announces new designs to be issued. For the first time since the Series 1905 $20 Gold Certificate, the new currency will feature subtle background colors, beginning with the redesigned $20 bill in October 2003. Different colors will be used for different denominations. This will help everyone - particularly those with visual impairments - to tell denominations apart. The redesigned $20 bill features subtle background colors of green, peach and blue, as well as images of the American eagle. THE END!
