Zimbabwe Dollar – Worth Less Than Monopoly Money!
这个Zimbabwe Dollaris a bizarre monetary beast – I went to津巴布韦in 2002,when $USD1 was ‘only' worth $Z600 (on the black market) and I had somehow managed to score a $Z1 coin in change,如下所示：
In 2008,津巴布韦政府发行了一张价值500000000（5000亿）津巴布韦元的纸币，which was worth 亚博app官方下载about $USD1 – reflecting the hyper inflation of 230 million % – thanks to Mr Bob Mugabe (check out the hyperlink and parody site,很搞笑）。
It would have been more cost effective to blow my nose or wipe my arse with Zimbabwe currency (imagine going to the toilet with 500 billionZimbabwe Dollars）而不是把它投资在手帕或卫生纸上。
Zimbabwe Dollar Mathematics!
The Zimbabwe $1 coin shown above would therefore be worth approximately $USD0.000000000002 in 2008!Which means that the metal in the Zimbabwe Dollar coin would be worth more than the face value!因此，Zimbabwe Dollaris the world's most ridiculous,毫无价值和无用的货币。
It's like watching inflation happen in real time!
More Zimbabwe Dollar Stuff!
If you want to reminisce where the Zimbabwe Dollar was in single digits – you can buy a Zimbabwe 1983 vintage 2 Dollar note! That must have seen like another era for the locals!
Other things to do in Zimbabwe after marvelling at the worthlessness of the Zimbabwe Dollar – well,most people now go toZambia.

Anyway,the Zimbabwe Dollar was abandoned in 2009 for the US dollar. Calculators of the world are now much safer from the hyperinflation effects!
