# What Trillion Dollars Looks like?

by on April 9, 2010

## 100 Dollars

Here is what 100 dollars looks like. Probably everyone has seen one of these. Some of you have even been lucky enough to own one or two

The 100 dollar bill is the largest denomination currently in circulation.

100 dollars:

## 10 000 Dollars

If you take one hundred 100 dollar bills and put them together you will get the standard hundred dollar stack. You’ve probably seen it in the movies a thousand times. This stack of 100 dollars is less than 1/2 inches thick (1.2cm) and easily fits in your pocket. 10 000 dollars is a sum that most Americans find to be a very large sum. For the average American this is his income of 3 or 4 months.

10 000 dollars:

## 1 Million Dollars

The following is what 1 million dollars looks like. It is a hundred packets of the \$10 000 above. It doesn’t look like that much. You can easily fit it in a bag and walk around on the street without anyone noticing. It takes the average American 25 years to make that kind of money – and that is when he would never spend a dime of it. The truth is that most Americans have made 1 million dollars when they have worked for 25 years but they have also spent the same amount.

1 million dollars:

## 100 Million Dollars

While 1 million dollars didn’t look like much, it is a totally different thing with \$100 million. It would take 2500 years for the average American to make that kind of money (unless you steal it :cool:).

As you see below, 100 million dollars fits perfectly on a standard pallet used for transporting cargo.

100 million dollars:

## 1 Billion Dollars

You can probably fit \$100 million in a van but to transport 1 billion dollars you definitely need a bigger truck. It will take the average bloke 25 000 years to make that kind of money.

Now this is what I’m talking about!

1 billion dollars:

## 1 Trillion Dollars

This is the sum we have been hearing lately a lot in the news. It seems that  billion is the new million and  trillion is the new billion. A trillion dollars is also about as much as the bailout of the large banks cost to the government.

A trillion dollars is written with 12 zeros.
Here it is: \$1 000 000 000 000

Oh and it would take the average American 25 million years to make that much money

1 Trillion Dollars Stacked

These are still \$100 dollar bills. Notice that the pallets are double stacked. If you’d be in the middle of all this money you’d probably get lost and it would take at least 30 minutes to get out

Guess I’d better step up my game at work if I want to make a \$100,000,000 by the time I die or they can just expand our lifetime…

100 million is a nice some – you can keep it in your home and it doesn’t take up too much space…
If you have room for a washing machine you’ll have room for 100 million dollars

Nice… I’m from Sri Lanka. If I had 1 million USD, it would be equivalent to 125 million rupees in my country. I could live comfortably for the rest of my life. If I had 100 million USD, I would be one of the richest people in Sri Lanka. Makes me wish I had the ability to teleport like in that film ‘Jumper’. I would teleport and steal money from South American Drug Lords if I could… nothing unethical about that..
