when i bought it, it was worth around £20, as 5 billion zimbabwe dollars would buy you a loaf of bread.

I think they've since re-denominated it, so it's not worth much at all really but it's still the highest denomination ever produced, so there's a bit of history there.

That was about twenty quid when they were issued in January, by now they're worth more as a novelty item than as currency.

They should just use exponential notation.

If you read the WIkipedia article inflation is now 10 to the power of 107 percent (1 with 107 noughts after it) annually, that's 98%per day :O
