German Fifty Million Marks

German fifty million (50,000,000) Mark hyperinflation note.

Due to excessive money printing by the Weimar Republic to finance war reparations and government spending, a period of hyperinflation occurred in 1923 Germany. Loose monetary policy and loss of public confidence in the currency led to the flooding of Marks on the market, resulting in a vicious cycle of escalating prices.
