Can someone try to get me one of these? I think they are worth $5 or so and expire. This one belongs to Adam Curry and he gloats about it.




  1. poindexter says:

    I have had one of these for a while now. It makes for a great bookmark. I got mine in a set of about 5 Zimbabwean bills from 10 – 100 trillion. Purchased the set on eBay for $20.

  2. igeek says:

    Well the current rate that may soon be bested by the US dollar.

  3. SparkyOne says:

    For 100 trillion I would have expected the art work to be a bit better.

  4. OmegaMan says:

    Thanks John! Got mine for $2 free shipping on ebay. Maybe I can no pay that Nigerian Prince to leverage open that oil account and gain me even more money! Bwwhahahahaha

  5. Skippy says:

    Is that the Rock Band videogame font?

  6. Improbus says:

    I keep seeing Doctor Evil saying: “One Hundred Trillion Dollars!”

  7. Angel H. Wong says:

    I didn’t knew Zimbabwe had George W. Bush’s portrait on their One Hundred Trillion Dollars.

  8. Zybch says:

    I got a couple of these recently, and also their 1c note to bookend the failed currency.
    I’d send you one John, but by the time it takes to cross the globe I’m sure you’d already have got one from someone else.

  9. B.Dog says:

    They’re $2.95 /w free shipping right now on ebay.

    Are those rocks their parliament building?

  10. Cap'nKangaroo says:

    Are those rocks or a pile of dog pooh?

  11. steve says:

    bought a bunch on ebay for 20 dollars uncirculated mint condition 10-20-50-100 trillion awesome to have fun for jokes especially in todays economic climate love them try ebay john

  12. c_starfish3 says:

    i got one from e-bay. it was like $10 including the shipping from South Africa.

  13. Smart Ass says:

    Does anyone know if this is available on eBay?

  14. deowll says:

    Wait a few years. At the rate we are going you may well be able to get one in US currency and still not have enough money to buy a cup of coffee.

    Did you know that every American now owes over $300,000? Your share of what the US government has borrowed and it’s growing fast.

    #10 No, their good fortune god.

  16. LibertyLover says:

    #8, You’re being too kind. There is more than one rock in the picture.

  17. Mr Diesel says:

    If this Congress and President keep spending like an aircraft carrier full of drunken sailors you won’t be able to buy a cup of coffee with a wheelbarrow full of US notes in this denomination.

    Hope and Change (for a 100 trillion note)

    Thanks Obomba

  18. Rich says:

    Well, he USED to have a pocketful of them, but he used them up…one by one.

  19. If that’s only $5, I’d expect a 5×10^14, a 1×10^15 and even possibly a 2×10^15 note. The last would be equivalent to a C note here.

    I don’t imagine I’ll be going through Zimbabwe again anytime soon. It was a lot more stable when I went through, with a stop at Vic Falls, on my way to Botswana in 1998.

  20. Winston says:

    “I didn’t knew Zimbabwe had George W. Bush’s portrait on their One Hundred Trillion Dollars.”

    Dumb as a pile of rocks. That’s great!

  21. wirelessg says:

    Zimbabweopoly money?

  22. Johnny Platypus says:

    These were also offered for sale at a recent (Sept) Long Beach, California coin show. The dealer had multiple bundles of 100 notes offered wholesale to other dealers for $125 per bundle. The notes, unlike earlier Zimbabwe “dollars,” have no expiration date on them. They came out in the last half of ’08 with a local exchange value of approx. US$80, or so I have been told. The value went to zero within weeks. Now they are shipped over here for what they’ll bring as novelties. Consider them as historic reminders of the vast devastation and suffering caused by government-organized theft of wealth from its populace.

  23. pedro says:

    #22 And a show on what an ignorant populace can do to itself.

  24. Russ says:

    You can get the set of 4 notes: 10 trillion – 100 trillion from here for $38:

  25. Martin says:

    I think the reason the bill shows a pile of rocks is because it reflects the fact that their economy has hit “rock bottom”.

  26. Jägermeister says:

    Perhaps Arnold should buy one and bail out California?

  27. ZARk says:

    aren’t those the OLD notes ?
    the ones for 2008

    think this year they said 1 Trillion $ = 1 $
