US brings colour to new 'greenback' notes

US - The end of the greenback could be close, it is reported. The US government on Thursday announced plans to introduce other colours on dollar bills to help tourists tell the different notes apart.

"International visitors complain 'We can't tell your denominations apart,'" said the Bureau of Engraving and Printing which will release new versions of the $20, $50 and $100 bills next year.

US notes are all the same colour and size, which makes them hard to distinguish quickly - a boon for swindlers
