Back to Hyperinflation Banknotes

Belarus went through a period of hyperinflation shortly after it broke away from the Soviet Union in 1991. In 1992, the highest denomination was 500 Rublei, but by 1999, it reached 5,000,000 Rublei. In the 2000 currency reform, 1 new Ruble was exchanged for 1,000 old Rublei.
The current highest denomination is 100,000 Rublei, which is equivalent to 100,000,000 pre-2000 Rublei.
