US set to unveil new hundred dollar bill

Experts say even the most sophisticated computers will be unable to reproduce the notes.

    The United States is set to debut the newest version of the world’s most widely counterfeited currency – the one hundred dollar bill.

    Big spenders will now be able to use the new currency that is redesigned primarily to prevent counterfeiting.

    It is more than two years behind schedule, due to what officials called unexpected printing problems.

    Al Jazeera's Tom Ackerman reports.
