New $10 bill set to make colorful debut Thursday

The redesigned $10 bill debuts Thursday in cash registers and ATMs across the country.

The 10-spot is the latest U.S. bill to undergo a colorful makeover, joining the $20 and $50 bills. It will have red, orange and yellow highlights to go along with the traditional green ink. The Statue of Liberty's torch and the phrase "we the people" will appear in red and small number 10s will be printed in yellow.

The portrait of Alexander Hamilton, the first Treasury secretary, has been redesigned. The bill includes the anticounterfeiting features of color-shifting ink, a security thread and a faint watermark of Hamilton's face to the right of his portrait.

Government officials plan a ceremonial transaction Thursday morning at the National Archives in Washington, D.C. One of the new bills will be spent at the National Archives Shop. You'll have a very good chance of getting one at the bank or in your change while shopping; 800-million are going into circulation.
