    The new one is not worth as much as the old one. Our currency has been falling in value since 1913 and the creation of the FED.

    When they we first printed, the old one-hundred dollar bills definitely had more buying power than the ones being printed today.

    For any bill it is to be turned over in the economy 9 times for purchasing power. Though paper fiat currency has no value, with the exception of the cost of printing it which is approximently $.03. The purchasing power has also been devalueded by 97% since 1913 through fractional reserve lending practices. Since its printing cost is 3 cents and it value is of $3 purchasing power it would have its original value had it not turned over in the economy 9 times. Therefore divide that by 9 and you get about 33 cents once it has been used up. It would be nice if our currency was backed by gold and redeemable upon the value of 32 troy-oz per $20 Gold Certificates. At that point gold and dollars would have equal footing once again.

    No difference other than the new one is worth less than half of the old one, and neither reside in my wallet.

    The new hundred dollar bill is totally unique in the history of the U.S. Treasury for a variety of reasons. The most noticeable of these is that half of it features shiny gold coloring. This gold and a variety of other differences in this unique bill have suggested to some that there might be a hidden symbolism in the hundred dollar bill. If it is true, this could have tremendous impacts on your investments going forward.

    There several new security features that include a blueish three dimensional security ribbon and a golden bell inside of a gold colored inkwell. Besides this, it also features a color shifting number 100, a golden 100, raised printing, micro printing, and a portrait watermark. These are all interesting and practical design and security features, yet they do not at once explain what hidden symbolism may be a part of this last of redesigned hundred dollar bills.

    The United States possesses a unique history of placing hidden meanings inside of bills. This is important to remember as you go through the various unusual differences in this new one hundred dollar bill. It helps you to see where the conspiracy theorists are coming from with the new bill, particularly in light of the economic crisis that has recently shaken the nation and world. The symbolism in the new hundred dollar bill centers around all of the gold coloring and ink found on it. Not only is there plenty of gold coloring found in the bell and inkwell, as well as on one of the number hundreds, but the bill turns still more gold when you shift it in the light. Besides this, there are still other dramatic differences between this bill and all of the other bills that the Bureau of Engraving and Printing has made. Some are suggesting that all of this gold recalls the days of the gold standard that the U.S. participated in for so long, until only forty years ago in fact.

    Consider the most obvious difference between this new hundred dollar bill and the various other colored bills that have been printed in recent years. You can not miss the enormous blue stripe, called a security thread, that runs down the middle of the bill. Red, white, and blue contain certain special meanings within the American flag.

    The white stands for innocence and purity. The red stands for valor and hardiness. The blue color signifies perseverance, vigilance, and justice. This blue stripe divides the hundred dollar bill into roughly two halves. When you look at the two halves and think about them carefully, you notice that they are entirely different from one another.

    The Two Sides of the One Hundred Dollar Bill
    Keep in mind that there are two groups in the U.S. where money backing is considered. One, which currently has the upper hand, believes that paper money, also known as fiat money, is the best path for the nation. The other group holds to an intrinsic money that is actually backed up by gold. Look at the two sides of the hundred dollar bill with this in mind.

    The Left Side of the One Hundred Dollar Bill
    To the left of the blue stripe are features that agree with the fiat money group. The left side does not have any gold on it, for example, only the standard green found in U.S. paper bills. It contains the typical elements that you would expect to see in a bill, including the Fed’s official seal, Federal Reserve Note, and also the just moved signature of the Treasury Secretary, formerly on the right side of the bill.

    This is consistent with a Fiat money theory, since Tim Geithner is a firm believer in paper money. The centerpiece of the left side is Ben Franklin, who is placed just to the left of this blue stripe. You probably do not know this about Benjamin Franklin, but he proved to be a huge supporter of Fiat money in his time.

    Franklin did not like the Imperial bankers of the British Empire who wished to make the colonists operate on a Gold or Silver standard. He knew that the overseas trade imbalance would deplete the colonies’ gold and silver so there would not be sufficient money for the colonies to engage in their own trade with each other. So it is no accident that Franklin is on the left side of the blue stripe, representing paper money.

    The Right Side of the One Hundred Dollar Bill
    To the right of the blue stripe representing justice, vigilance, and perseverance you find all of the gold on the front and back of the bill. Here you see a golden Liberty Bell, a golden Ink Well, gold 100, a gold Feather pen, background gold writing, a gold Watermark, and a golden colored July 4, 1776.

    On the back of the right side, you see an enormous golden 100 also. There can be no mistaking all of the gold on the right side of the security thread. Clearly it has to stand for something. Here are some possible interpretations that have been suggested for all of the elements on the gold side of the new bill.

    The ink well in gold represents Congress’ power to make laws that could take down the paper money system that would only need a pen stroke. The liberty bell all in gold inside of the ink well stands for the power of Congress to restore the liberty to the citizens that the banking system has taken from them.

    The statement “This note is legal tender for all debts, public and private” used to be on the left side of the bill, but it has now been moved to the gold standard side. Besides this, the 100 on the front bottom shifts from green color to gold color. Finally, the words written just atop the gold 100 on the far right are significant. They say “the People to alter or abolish it, and to institute new.” This statement taken from the Declaration of Independence falls in with the argument of abolishing the current money system in favor of a return to the gold standard.

    There are people who believe that the United States has been preparing for quite some time to return to the Gold Standard, since its abandonment has depreciated the dollar by over seventy percent. These people point to all of the symbolism in the new one hundred dollar bill and say that the time for the return to the Gold Standard has at last come.

    They point to the unexpected delay in the release of the bill from February 10, 2011 as further evidence that the financial crisis has only encouraged the government to return to it, and that they will announce this when the hundred dollar bill actually comes out.

    Looking for? So you already have the answer in your head that you like. Great. But it doesn't make other answers wrong. They are all correct from what I can see. The worth is questionable. Saying the old one is worth more is objective to who you present it to.
