** According to OldMoney (and TheOtherWiki), they still do print notes of values £1 million (giants) and £100 million (titans) - but these serve to guarantee the Scottish national banks and never enter consumer circulation.

** Germany before the Euro had 1,000DM, 2,000DM and 5,000DM bills, as well as a 5DM bill in addition to the more common 5DM coin. The Euro has neither the equivalent coin nor those bills.

* Between 1929 and 1945, the American government printed paper money in denominations going up to $10,000 bills that were actually released into circulation, and $100,000 bills used for interbank transfers (and exclusively for the twelve Federal Reserve Banks at that).

** In the episode "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS4E9MrPlow Mr. Plow]]", Homer gets rival plowman Barney Gumble to spend the day dragging his plow up a mountain with the promise of a ten thousand dollar bill. When asked which president is on it, he claims, "''All of them. They're having a party. Jimmy Carter has passed out on the couch.''". [[note]]The actual ten-thousand dollar bill features Chief Justice Salmon P. Chase, and hasn't been in cicrulation for decades.[[/note]][[TheDitz Barney]] is so impressed that he leaves immediately, abandoning his hot tub with Music/LindaRonstadt.

* Due to hyperinflation in Zimbabwe, the regime eventually printed bills as high as $Z 100 ''trillion'', seen [[http://www.coins-and-banknotes.com/images//Products/Large/207328-100%20Trillion.jpg here]]. They eventually gave up entirely, and the country now uses several foreign currencies (mostly the U.S. dollar).

* [[http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/01/07/trillion-dollar-coin-solution_n_2426333.html The trillion dollar coin idea]], a proposal to solve an impended debt ceiling crisis by minting a $1 trillion platinum coin, exploiting the fact that by law the US Mint can make platinum coins (and ''only'' platinum coins) with any face value it sees fit and without regard to the bullion value of the platinum. All other types of coins are strictly regulated by acts of Congress, but for whatever reason the Mint was given carte blanche to do as it pleases with regard to platinum. Ultimately, Congress backed down from its threat to let the debt ceiling be breached (and thereby cause the United States to go into default for the first time in history), and nothing more has been heard of the hypothetical $1 trillion coin.

* Parodied in the MAD board game, which featured a [[http://www.boardgamegeek.com/image/204608 $1,329,063 bill]]. Granted, you could only get it if you landed on a certain square and your name was Alfred E. Neuman - but maybe it's for the best, as the object of said board game is to ''lose'' all your money.
* The Star of Africa from [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Afrikan_t%C3%A4hti the Finnish board game by the same name]]. You can find plenty of jewels in the game and cash them in for money that helps in getting ahead, but the Star of Africa is the only diamond, and effectively priceless; it can't be sold as such, but taking it back to one of the starting cities wins the game.

* William Pene Dubois' ''The Twenty-One Balloons'' mostly took place in a balloon-mad society located on an island which contained a large number of rather sizable diamonds. They sold the smaller ones in limited numbers in order to fund everything without collapsing the market. Too bad the island in question was Krakatoa and it was right before the eruption... (In the introduction, he mentioned several similarities between the book and an F. Scott Fitzgerald story called "The Diamond as Big as the Ritz" and his conclusion that there were really only a very few sensible things to do with a very large diamond.)

* In the game ''VideoGame/EvilGenius'', one of the loot items you can steal is a million dollar bill (The game is set in the '60s). Since its too big to actually spend, it sits in your base, cheering up your minions.

* The Portrait of Madison in Creator/RaymondChandler's ''Literature/PhilipMarlowe'' novel ''The Long Goodbye''. Sure, it's only $5,000 -- but where are you going to spend that in [[TheFifties the 1950s]]?
