The Associated Press reports that US currency is getting yet another makeover, as the Bureau of Engraving and Printing will start adding color to paper money.

The $20 bill will be the first to get color, probably by next fall, to be followed by the $50, and the $100.

While the basic design of the bills and the portraits adorning them will not change, things could be shifted around a little bit in addition to the new colors.

US currency was last redesigned in 1998. The current move has been in the works for five years, costing $53 million, and has been undertaken to foil counterfeiters.
