The New $20 Bil - Safer. Smarter. More Secure.

The new $20 design retains three of the most important security features that were first introduced in the1990s and are easy to check: a watermark, security thread and color-shifting ink.

Hold the bill up to the light and look for the watermark, or faint image,similar to the large portrait of President Andrew Jackson. The watermarkis partof the paper itself and it can be seen from both sides of the note.
  Color-Shifting Ink
Look at the number “20” in thelower right corner on the face of thenote. When you tilt the note up anddown the color-shifting ink changescolor from copper to green.
Security Thread
Hold the bill up to the light and lookfor the security thread, or plastic strip,that is embedded in the paper andruns vertically up one side of the note.If you look closely, the words “USATWENTY” and a small flag are visiblealong the thread from both sides ofthe note. This thread glows greenwhen held under an ultraviolet light.
