Your technicolor tax dollars at work

Uncle Sam is whipping out his paintbrush, adding more color to the nation's currency in an attempt to foil high-tech counterfeiters. But there's also another benefit, according to the Associated Press:
There will be the addition of subtle background colors on both sides of the note to go with the traditional green and black. Each denomination has its own color to make finding the right bill in your wallet easier. For the $20, the additional colors were blue, peach and a different shade of green while the $50 bill featured the added colors of blue and red.
Thank you, government! If it weren't for you splashing ridiculous colors all over my money, how would I possibly know what denomination I'm carrying?
