How our calculator works

If you've ever had $1,000,000 in a suitcase (us neither) you will know that the weight of an amount of money can differ greatly depending on the denominations used to make up this amount.

Let's take an example. The Bureau of Engraving and Printing states that all US bills weigh a single gram. This means that $1,000,000 in $100 bills weighs around 10 kilograms (22.046 pounds). However, if you wanted your million in single dollar bills, that same amount of money would weigh a metric ton (2,204.623 pounds).

Coins are a little more complicated as they weigh different amounts. The U.S. Mint tells us that those quarters in your pocket each weigh 5.7 grams, meaning that $1,000,000 in quarters weighs a colossal 22.68 metric tons, the equivalent of 22,680 kilograms, 25 US tons, or 50,000.841 pounds.
