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
It doesn't tickle my fancy either. The bill was released in the capital cities yesterday. Haven't seen one yet.
Right, and I just found out it is the same size as the $20 bill. Kind of dumb, ruins the whole accessibility thing. I like the white-gray color, looks sleek.
