New Five Dollar Bill 2008-03-14 06:27:44

News Flash: The Purple Five Is Now in Circulation!

Last month I told you how excited I was that the five dollar bill was getting a purple makeover, and I'm happy to announce that it's now in circulation! The Federal Reserve has started sending the fancy fives to banks, the banks then issue the bills to businesses, and eventually they'll make it into the hands of you and me. Of course the old fives will remain in circulation until they wear out, and the new purple accents will stand out even more when we compare them side by side. High five!

Oh, I forgot to say that my debit card is pink so it's always prettier than cash, hehe.

I'm going to go to the bank to see if I can get one. I don't ever actually USE cash, though, just my debit card.

Oooh I might just have to walk down to the bank and see if I can get one. Problem is, I'd probably never spend it. Stupid purple.

our money is starting to look like the Euro - which isn't a bad thing since Euros are so colorful. i wonder if there are going to be issues with ppl thinking that they are counterfeit though...that was a problem i think when they introduced the new bills a year or so ago.
