A new $50 bill with touches of red, blue and yellow will be showing up soon at banks, in cash registers and wallets. A new $10 bill also is in the works, the third greenback to get colorized to cut back on counterfeiting.

Government officials used one of the new $50 bills Tuesday morning to buy a $45 U.S. flag, which came in a box, at a shop in Union Station. Old $50 bills will continue to be accepted and recirculated until they wear out.

As for plans for the new $10 bill, Alexander Hamilton, the nation's first treasury secretary, is expected to stay on the front, with the Treasury Department (news - web sites) remaining on the back, Thomas Ferguson, director of the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, said in an interview.
