    You're right, it is from Zimbabwe, but bigger than the 1 trillion dollar note...

    Haha, I wouldn't mind having one of those... Would never again be poor. Or let's say, feel poor, given it's worth like nothing :/

    Yes, Zimbabwe was full of trillionaires, yet most people were very poor.

    Hungary has the highest value banknote but they quite sensibly decided not to write it out in full, too many zeros would scare off the population.

    Yugoslavia was pretty impressive until Zimbabwe came along

    I have both these notes (not the ones pictured)

    I also have some current community currency notes from Brazil, 0.5 cents, technically they are not national currencies but they are issued by banks (or so they call themselves) so might just be able to slip in...

    Very interesting. How many zeros should there be on the note from Hungary?

    Any banknote used as currency qualifies. :)

    Didn't Morrocco or Spain issue bank notes the size of postage stamps?

    21 zeros.

    100,000,000,000,000,000,000

    They printed up another one with 22 zeros but never released it.
