Security Features of the New New $20 Bill:

  • The bill is now colored: It is green on the outer half, and a bland yellow in the center. On the left front, there's a blue image of the eagle holding three arrows and a branch with eight leaves on it.
  • In the bottom corner, there is the number "20" in gold/copper ink. When the bill is held at an angle, this ink turns green.
  • There's a symbol that contains the eagle and a patriotic looking shield in green ink. This ink doesn't change colors.
  • On the right of the bill, a watermark of President Jackson can be seen in bright light.
  • The actual picture of Jackson is now off center in the bill, and has no frame surrounding it. In addition, the picture extends onto the bottom border of the bill. At the bottom, there's the phrase "Jackson".
  • All over the bill, there are small little lines that are hexagons, wrapped around and interlocking with eachother. It is kind of hard to explain here.
  • On the right of the bill, behind the treasury seal, there is the phrase "TWENTY USA" and below that, "USA TWENTY".
  • On the back, there are little "20"s surrounding the picture of the White House. They are gold.
  • The numbers "20" on the back of the bill are printed with thin lines, to give the illusion of being fully green.
