Are you selling?

I am thinking it might be cool to build a collection of historical hyperinflation currency notes.  Good conversation point and of course it will allow me to claim that I am a millionaire/billionaire/trillionaire tongue

No, but I'd buy if I could find any at a reasonable price (given they weren't that rare). They seem to be collector's items now.

Looks like the 100 trillion dollar note is going for around $20AUD on ebay in several auctions at the moment.

I'm surprised they even gave them 6 months validity, considering the pace of inflation at that time.  They would have lost most of that value in days, let alone months.

The $100 trillion ZWR notes were the next currency to those $10 billion ZWN notes, which were exchanged at $1 ZWR = $10 billion ZWN.

So the $100 trillion ZWR notes were equivalent to about $1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 ZWN.

The irony is that the $100 trillion notes are worth more for the novelty than they were as currency.  And they appear to have gone up in value.. as I recall picking up a set of 20/50/100 trillion notes for around $15 back some 6 or so years ago.
