What is the largest bank note in England?


A - A one hundred million note.

This note is nicknamed a titan and is used internally at the Bank of England. They have 40 of them.

The Bank of England also has 1 million pound notes, called giants there are 4000 of these

So there are 4bn worth of giants and titans at the Bank of England.

They apparently look much like the old white fivers

I had a quick shufti around the web, and I reckon for the notes, the smallest banknote in the world was probably the 1994 Yugoslavian dinar after their hyperinflation.

On January 4, 1994, one 1 German Deutchmark was worth 6 trillion New Yugoslavian Dinars. The government had already made a "new" dinar, worth a million old dinars, but in January 2004 they created a new, new dinar which was worth a billion old new dinars.

By the end of that month the government introduced the "super" Dinar equal to 10 million of the new new Dinars.

More here, and other hyperinflation stuff available if useful.
