The Z$100 trillion note was the largest ever printed in Zimbabwe. It came at a time when hyperinflation had soared so high that it reached Z$300 trillion to the US dollar on the black market in February 2009. Shortly afterwards the Zimbabwean currency was abandoned and replaced with US dollars. The Z$100 trillion has become a collector’s item.

In 2015 the Zimbabwean Minister of Finance announced that they would make the Chinese yuan their main reserve currency and legal tender after China cancelled US$40 million in debts. However this has not materialised. Currently there are nine currencies that are legal tender in Zimbabwe but 90% of transactions are in US dollars.
