will begin circulating on Oct. 8, the Federal Reserve is offering training for those responsible for screening the bill's new security features to determine the authenticity of the currency.

The new $100 notes have two new security features incorporated in the design; a three-dimensional security ribbon and a bell-in-the-inkwell graphic.
The Fed says its training materials also include an overview of previously redesigned denominations and are accompanied by a training script "for easy reference."
