Front of new $5 bill
Some of the new features include a portrait of Lincoln that no longer has an oval border around it. He's been moved up and his shoulders will extend to the border. In the new bill, there will be a light purple color in the center that blends into gray at the edges. Also small yellow "05" symbols are printed on the left.
The bill also includes "symbols of freedom"--stars on both sides of Lincoln, and the Great Seal featuring the American eagle and a shield to his right.
