You can set this via the first-block-reward blockchain parameter, and its maximum value is 1000000000000000000 (10^18 or one quintillion). This limits the value in raw (integer) currency units – the actual display value would depend on the native-currency-multiple setting.

so this value of amount of coins doesn't include the decimal, so i can create up to 1000000000000000000.00000000 coins? and is the 8 digets after the decimal set in stone or can that be changed as well ??
No, it's the opposite - this is the largest number of raw units, where a raw unit is the smallest available amount to transact. You can control the size of the smallest unit using the native-currency-multiple setting, e.g. 1000000 means that the smallest unit is one millionth of a coin.
