    They recently re-denominated their dollar, so 100 billion is now worth about 10. Before the re-denomination that bill was worth less than 2 USD.

    Then again, my math is horrible so I may be off.

    Yeah.. check this from xe.com

    Notice: The Zimbabwe government redenominated the ZWD on August 1, 2008 at a rate of 10,000,000,000 old ZWD to 1 new ZWD. No new currency code has been issued, but the old ZWD currency remains legal tender until December 31, 2008.

    So that is worth like $2.80.

    Because of Hyper-inflation, they recently took 10 zeros off the end of the currency. This means my Granddad can’t be paid his pension, because it would require a monthly payment of Z$0.0023
