Have a five dollar note and want to know its value? Leave a comment
This is the note that breaks all the rules about series year. The first colorized $5 bill has the series year 2006 but so does the last non-colorized $5 bill. Usually the letter A would have been added or start a completely new series year instead they just changed the serial prefix. Older 2006 $5 bill are H-blocks while newer ones are I-blocks.
The biggest change from non-colorized version, besides the colored background, was the giant purple 5 on the reverse. All the corner 5's were made lighter but the one on the reverse was made huge for ease of use. To me it makes it look like the funny money from a foreign country but that is the way our money is headed.
Still why these design changes did not merit a new series letter probably had to do with laws and politics more than system in place. It is easier to print a quick small run of H-block then ask permission to change the series year. Certain things about currency confuses me too so if you have a definitive answer let me know in the comments section.
Coins are much simpler.
