Of course, it costs $50,000 from this seller on buy.com:

Hurry so you don't miss out on this deal. :-) .


#3

perhaps the $ is Zimbabwean dollar, which is plagued by hyperinflation, so a few additional zeros don't matter ;-)


#4

Nah, it's the Razorback hog dollar.

#5

I think I'll order two :-)


#6

What is the smallest denomination cruzeiro ?


#7

In the original cruzeiro (from 1942 to 1967), it was the 10-cent coin. But the cruzeiro had at least two other versions before being extinct in 1993(I had to look up at Wikipedia -- Brazilian cruzeiro). Later I remember there were 5-cruzeiro coins, but they were worth close to nothing. From '82 to '94 when the Real eventually replaced the cruzado, I collected about 40 bills like the ones in the pictures. They made into my collection when their value dropped to about the price of a bus ticket, except the last one, the bill on top, which was equivalent to US$ 18.18 when it was retired from circulation. I got this one from the bank in the nick of time. I should have taken a few more: now they sell for US$ 100 or more :-)

Pun intended?

#9

No. BTW, have you ever noticed that when people say "no pun intended" they usually mean the other way around? :-)


#10

Pity! Cruzado cruzeiro would have been a good one.

Amazing what people do for a good pun:
