Zimbabwe's central bank is about to introduce a 100 trillion Zimbabwe dollar banknote, worth about $33 (22 pounds) on the black market, to try to ease desperate cash shortages. At the same time, they'll be introducing Z$10 trillion, Z$20 trillion and Z$50 trillion notes.

I can't imagine how you'd fit all those zeros (all 14 of them) onto a small piece of paper, but would really like to get my hands on one of the Z$100 trillion notes just to see. It'll also be great to hold onto for posterity.

So, if anyone has any access to these new notes, please let me know. I want one. I've asked Mum, but sadly she can't help. Got some pics of some of their current notes and their purchasing "power" instead (I love how the notes have an expiry date :-) )...

Z$750 000 note Z$10m = US$10 Z$250m note Z$100 Billion Note Z$10m Note Z$10m notes US Dollars go a long way Far too happy Z$100m for 3 eggs Shopping in Zim Cheap Bread Drinks Bill Expensive Tomatoes Toilet Paper Only

I think the last one says it all. It's about time the SADC pull finger and get rid of the fool running Zimbabwe. Pity there's no oil in Zimbo: George W Bush would have been in there in a flash.
