Abe Lincoln in Color

A new $5 bill starts circulating next year -- adding touches of purple and gray. Part of the Treasury Department's efforts to make counterfieting harder -- the fin will have security upgrades that bills from the sawbuck to c-note have already gotten.

These include two watermarks featuing the numberal "5" and the security tape will be moved to a part of the bill different from where the $100 bill's tape runs. (USAToday)
