1 billion trillion Pengõ (1 milliard-billion in the long scale, as shown) = 1 sextillion Pengõ. Printed in 1946 shortly before the forint replaced the pengõ as Hungary’s national currency, at a rate of 400 octillion pengõ to 1 forint.

    3. This particular bill was never circulated; the forint was introduced before they could release it. However, the 100 million trillion pengö bill was circulated, though it was worth less than the paper it was printed on.

    4. yes, Fiat money is not based on anything real. the value of Fiat money is determined by the whims of men.

      this means you can have a piece of currency valued at 400 octillion pengõ that is not worth shit.

      on the other end of the spectrum is Representative money, which “can be reliably exchanged for a fixed quantity of a commodity such as gold, silver or potentially water, oil or food”.

      vote Ron Paul 2008 even if it won’t change the system…. wasnt it vygramul who said “Just because you can vote for your favorite clown doesn’t mean it changes who owns the circus”?
