WOW. If my household goes into debt, instead of cutting back and working harder, wish I could just print up some money.

Do you know the Bank of England has million pound notes? I cannot remember if its ten or twenty of them, used for internal accounting, so there is nothing new about high denomination notes ( apart from the Weimar inflation notes)
The million pound note was issued in connection with the Marshall Aid Plan after World War II and was intended for internal use as ‘records of movement,’ for a period of six weeks only. It is believed that nine examples were produced and only two, Numbers Seven and Eight, survived.
The two notes were given as mementoes to the respective U.S. and U.K. Treasury Secretaries. The Number Seven was first sold in 1977 and is listed in the Guinness Book of Records as being the highest denomination note in private hands.

lol , I dont think the value of money has to match the material its made from. It would be hard to find a substance worth 1 trillion that could be made into a coin. I think Anti matter comes in at 62.5 trillion a gram though

Now I know why they are all looking for alien life from outer space. They are looking for someone else to borrow money from. I wonder what the exchange rate is for 'space bucks'

This would be impossible, unless the Treasury has 35,112,359 lbs of Platinum sitting around in its vaults.
