Detecting a Counterfeit $100


Detecting a Counterfeit $100

November 16, 2017

The New Hundred — Five years later

In 2013, the United States Federal Reserve issued a new, security-feature-laden $100 bill. Now five years later, can your team members detect a counterfeit bill if they are handed one?

This video from the US Currency Education Program is interesting, but in a busy, time-is-money environment, does your team have the time or know-how to look for these fancy security features like microprinting, color-shifting ink, and watermarks?

Dri Mark has you and your business covered. As the leaders in counterfeit detection products, we have created an all-in-one detection device that can help protect your business in less than a second!

The FlashTest unit reliably and — most importantly for businesses — quickly checks multiple facets of currency for signs of counterfeiting.

  • Ink Sensor – takes less than a second to check the ink on any denomination $5 and up for signs of counterfeiting
  • UV test – one-handed operation with powerful UV LEDs to look for a potentially counterfeit bill’s security strip
  • Watermark test – if a bill is suspected of being forged currency, the FlashTest identifies the watermark (or lack of one!) with one hand, in one second
