New 50-dollar bill this fall

Another greenback is getting a little more color. Authorities will announce on Wednesday a new 50-dollar bill with touches of red, blue and yellow. It'll start showing up in banks and wallets this fall. The 50 will still feature Ulysses S. Grant on the front and the US Capitol on the back. The new look is meant to make the currency harder for counterfeiters to knock off. The head of the Bureau of Engraving and Printing says 140 million new 50's will be produced by September 28th. The 20-dollar bill -- the most counterfeited note in the US -- was the first to get color treatment. It features splashes of peach, blue and yellow, and came out last fall.
