One hundred trillion dollarsOk, they may be from Zimbabwe, but they make a cracking headline. I just happened to recently come across this listing on eBay UK while searching for some Chinese slimming tea (I am beginning to hear the flab talking to me while I sleep, really). Don’t ask me how I stumbled upon it while searching for weight loss products, but it did happen. It was just something that caught my eye. I had to read it 3 times before I realised that it might actually be true, and presto IT IS!

Have a look for yourself. Click the eBay link below to go to an active listing of this single official banknote from Zimbabwe.

I travelled to Zimbabwe a few times in my childhood. I remember Bulawayo and Victoria Falls and a funny currency called Kwacha from Zimbabwe’s neighbour Zambia.
