The World's Highest Denomination Bank Note

Hungary suffered the worst inflation in modern history immediately after WWII. Before 1945, the highest denomination was 1,000 Pengo. By mid-1946, the highest denomination in circulation was 100 Million B-Pengo (100,000,000,000,000,000,000 Pengo). Banknotes were so worthless that they were actually thrown away as trash.
