1 Milliard B-Pengo
Hungary also printed a 1 Milliard B-Pengo (Amerian 1 Sextillion Pengo)*, 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 Pengo, note in 1946. Overtaken by inflation, it was never in circulation.

* The European number system differs from the American system for denominations above one million:
European 1 milliard = American 1 billion (1,000,000,000)
European 1 billion = American 1 trillion (1,000,000,000,000)
