If you're handed a $5 bill that looks a little strange, don't fear! The Treasury Department has given Lincoln a facelift. The Treasury is rolling out new fives featuring state of the art anti-counterfeiting measures and purple ink. "While the redesigned $10, $20 & $50 all have colorful designs the new $5 blends from purple to gray with shining yellow stars: not to mention the giant purple 5 on the back," according to Neatorama.

Implications - Look closely at the bill. The most important thing about it is the new purple tinge that stands conspicuously in the middle of the bill and blends grey around the edges.
