By the time he gets to the shop he'll have a nice down payment for it. Inflation is out of this world right now. Not quite Wiemer Germany levels, but crazy none the less.

I'm wondering about how many special numbers are out there? ??? ??? :-\
Maybe a nice solid is waiting you.  But the drawback is in the time you sort all these notes out, the value will have nicely dropped... :-[ :-[ :-\

Yes, off topic for sure. I think this should be in the "US Currency" thread under specimen notes.

Did you notice SPECIMEN $20 note (the last note in the row) ???.

Of course it's possible that a lot of the bundles of those Zimbabwean notes have scrap paper as fillers or - lol - counterfeits! :P  I suppose the merchant would want to count it all before giving the poor guy his bread.  Meaning the guy would get a VERY stale loaf of bread.

Guess this guy has his weekly pay delivered to him by a dump truck or something.  On the bright side he will never run out of toilet paper...

UPDATE: out of curiosity I went to www.xe.com to get the exchange rate for Canadian dollars to Zimbabwean dollars.

100 bucks Canadian makes you a multi-millionnaire in Zimbabwe:

100.00 CAD = 2,931,332.54 ZWD

You've gotta love that .54 at the end  ;D
