The new purple (and green) five dollar bill was released into circulation a few weeks ago, and I was finally lucky enough to get one in my hands! I think the front of the bill could use some more purple, but other than that the new bill didn't disappoint my high expectations.
Abe's makeover has made the new five significantly more sassy than the other older, less colorful bills. In the gallery below you can see how the new five compares to several of the existing bills, including the hundred, twenty, ten and the one dollar bill. I've also pointed out some of the differences I can see among the various bills. Have you gotten a hold of a new five yet?
