Photo Of The Day: Ten Billion Dollar Bill

A ten billion dollar bill? Must be another one of those crazy Gadling April Fool’s Day posts, right? Except it’s real. Today’s photo comes to us from a store in Stellenbosch, South Africa, where I recently came across this framed ten billion dollar bill from Zimbabwe. Back in 2009, as the Zimbabwean economy was in free-fall, the country started printing 50, 20 and 10 Trillion dollar notes in an effort to keep up with rampant hyperinflation.

Taken any great photos (hilarious or otherwise) during your recent travels? Why not share them with us by adding them to our Gadling group on Flickr? We might just pick one of yours as our Photo of the Day.
