Novelty-sized cash

Real bank notes, real big

We have novelty-sized cheques, so why not very big bank notes?

These would be limited edition releases by the local mint, with the usual mark-up associated with special editions such as those used to celebrate sporting events.

Turn up to your local charity auction, and start waving around some seriously big bids. Poster-sized notes that make a great photo opportunity at a 21st birthday or other special occasion.

NB: not suitable for surreptitious bribes.

       There was an artist in England decades ago who did huge detailed paintings of banknotes. He would offer them in lieu of payment at shops (they were worth a lot more than face value). He got into some legal trouble.
