The largest banknote denomination ever printed was the pengo, a form of Hungarian currency used from 1927 to 1946, worth 1 sextillion. It was created in 1946 but was never actually issued due to the country’s hyperinflation, which occurs when there is a lot of currency but not enough gross domestic product (GDP) to sustain it. Hyperinflation causes the currency’s value to fall, so banknotes with high numerical values don’t necessarily have much real market value. One of the biggest denominations of banknotes printed during the early 21st century was the 1 trillion dollar bills from Zimbabwe in 2008, when the country had the highest inflation rate in the world, but were phased out in 2009 when the country legalized foreign currency. .
