Zimbabwe painter – original bill

฿0.300

Acrylic on original Zimbabwen note, signed

Dimensions: 147 mm x 74 mm

 

 

This is an original Zimbabwean banknote, although the use of the Zimbabwean dollar as an official currency was effectively abandoned on 12 April 2009 – and now it’s only a collectible.

The “One hundred trillion dollars” bill is the note with the most zeroes of any legal tender in all recorded history. At one stage this note would not even cover a bus ticket, nor a candy bar, nor a coffee…The painter is in fact deleting some words and leaving only “one dollar”, as its real value was more or less that.

I have always found this note to be a good conversation starter, especially when you want to introduce cryptocurrencies to your audience.
