Brazil now has a $200 bill. The latest Brazilian money, the Real, was introduced in 1994. So far, the largest bill was $100. In 26 years, an inflation of about 2.7% per year would have caused the currency to lose half of its value. The actual annual inflation rate has been at least twice that. So, in practical terms, a $200 bill makes sense... but I still don't like it.
Reminds me of the 100 trillion bill from Zimbabwe :p
