There's always a risk when creating excess credit or money. Zimbabwe illustrated this example quite well by issuing bills of the highest denomination trying to make their way out of the reckless spending of the previous government and the agriculture sector's collapse. As a result of issuing these bills, Zimbabwe faced the worst inflation ever. Even worse, issuing million and billion dollar bills resulted in a significant hyperinflation. Ultimately, the government abandoned the high denominated bills with hopes of stabilizing the economy.
The 5 billion dollar bill is a highly admired note. It’s a large sized bill that is fun to hold and impressive to show off.
