So Many Zeroes

Zimbabwean currency for 100 trillion dollars
Now that's a sign of inflation.

A friend showed me this bill, which was purchased on eBay for a very small amount of money. If he's lucky, it may become a collector's item, since Zimbabwe suspended its currency in April of this year after several attempts at revaluing it after hyperinflation.

Currency that honors a rock? Has this poor country not a single person whose face is worthy of this high honor?

I was assuming the rock formation was something of great cultural significance. Or maybe the currency is such a joke that it's more of a dishonor than an honor to find your face on it.
