Largest Value Banknotes

Hyper-inflation does strange things for the denominations printed on banknotes. There has been some talk of the recent Zimbabwean crisis creating world record denominations on bank notes, and in all fairness 50billion and 100billion are unusually large. The record, however, as far as I am aware, is a 500billion denomination banknote from the dying days of Yugoslavia.

50billion denomination Zimbabwe

100billion denomination from Zimbabwe

500billion denomination from Yugoslavia
