    U.S. to Release New $10 Bills on March 2
    WASHINGTON - The trees won't be the only thing sprouting new colors come springtime. Americans' wallets will have more red, yellow and orange as the first of 800 million redesigned $10 bills start showing up in cash registers and ATM machines on March 2.

    Government officials said Thursday that they had selected the March date to start distributing the more colorful $10 bills, which will have shades of the new colors added to the traditional green.

    The makeover of the $10 follows colorization of the $20 bill in 2003 and the $50 bill last year.

    The new $10 will still feature Alexander Hamilton, the nation's first Treasury secretary, on one side, and the Treasury building on the other side.

    But those two images will be joined by the Statue of Liberty's torch and the phrase "We the People" in red along with small yellow 10s and a subtle orange background. All the changes are designed to thwart counterfeiters.
