The highest value means its absolute value which is approximately US$6800 but not its denomination value. Singapore first introduced its $10,000 banknote as the highest denomination of its Orchid series which was issued on 29 January 1973. The note has a dimension of 203 x 133 mm. It is one of the highest value currency in Asia.
On its subsequent banknotes, the second (Bird) and third (Ship) series, this $10,000 banknote was continued to be introduced in 1980 and 1989. The fourth series of $10,000 banknote was introduced on 9 September 1999. It was designed in gold color with the front features the portrait of Yusof Bin Ishak.

£100,000,000 Euro Note
The Bank of England has non-circulating notes used for internal accounting with a face value of £100,000,000 or $160 Billion Dollars. These high denomination Euro currency notes are said to have been introduced by the Rothschild EuroZone banking cartel to enable suitcase money-laundering, black market liquidity, dark pool financing and élite drug-running operations to keep the major EuroZone banks afloat after the global credit crunch of September 2008.
The particular images above are commemorative versions of the actual notes in circulation. The words "Not legal tender" show on the obverse. And the words "This certificate is backed and secured only by confidence in the European dream" show on the reverse. At the end of June / beginning of July 2012, the European Central Bank tried to cash a €150 billion tranche of this non-commemorative "legal tender" fiat currency for bailout purposes related to Spain. It failed.
Treasury currency bunkers all over Asia are stuffed full of pallets of shrink-wrapped packages of these high denomination Euro notes. The realisation is dawning in the East, as well as in the West, that these Euros are worthless. They are backed by nothing that is due-diligence tangible in the real-world European economy. They were tendered with fraudulent intent by a rogue faction within the EuroZone banking establishment to sucker Asian creditors.
