Zimbabwe unveils 100 trillion dollar banknote
Remember that Zimbabwe redemoninated in mid 2008 and took 10 zeroes off the bills, and it hardly seems worth mentioning but they took 3 zeroes off in 2006. That makes this new bill 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 which may or may not be 1 nonillion dollars. It's a lot of zeroes, I may have missed a few one way or another.

Zimbabwe diary: No more trillionaires
Just last week, bus fares changed three times!
We started the week paying Z$50bn, then it was Z$70bn, then Z$100bn.
It stopped there - the Reserve Bank failed to change the daily withdrawal limit , keeping it at Z$100bn - just enough for one fare!
