History & Description of the Zimbabwe 50 Billion Dollar Note


The 50 billion dollar banknote was first issued by the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe in January of 2009. The obverse of the note features Zimbabwe's Chiremba Balancing Rocks, a famous example of the many curious natural structures that dot the landscape of this southern African country. The note bears the signature of Gideon Gono, the former governor of The Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe, and arguably one of the central figures responsible for the country's epic financial collapse. When the 50 billion dollar banknote was first issued, it could buy several loaves of bread, but within 3 weeks of its release, its purchasing power had atrophied to the point where it couldn't even buy half a loaf of bread.

The reverse of the note features two images: On the left, a section of the wonderfully designed and perennially mysterious Great Zimbabwe ruins, and on the right, the famous 28-story New Reserve Bank building in downtown Harare. You can see the real-life images upon which these depictions are based in the photos below:

The outlandish denominations of these notes gives you a picture of just how anemic the purchasing power of the Zimbabwean currency had become due to hyperinflation. While we here at BuyZimbabweDollars.com do not claim to be able to solve the economic problems of the many countries of this world, we can offer the monetary relics of said countries when their currencies become defunct. Hence this page of 50 billion dollar banknotes, and hence this wretched and woebegotten website altogether. Curse the lot of those ne'er-do-well government officials who spawn such hyperinflationary policies!!!
