What does one trillion dollars look like?


LAST UPDATED: March 24, 2020 by Ryan M

With all of the talk about trade deficits, debt, corporate bailouts, etc., I wanted to visualize what one trillion dollars looked like. Thankfully, PageTutor.com already did this. If you are interested in learning some HTML, head over to their site. Anyways, these are the images from their post.

This is a $100 bill:

This is $10,000 made up of $100 bills:

10 thousand dollars in 100 dollar bills


This is $1,000,000 (one million dollars) made up of $100 bills:

1 million dollars in 100 dollar bills


This is $100,000,000 (one hundred million dollars) made up of $100 bills:

100 million dollars in 100 dollar bills


This is one billion dollars ($1,000,000,000) made up of $100 bills:


….and this is one trillion ($1,000,000,000,000) dollars made up of $100 dollar bills:

1 trillion dollars in 100 dollar bills


I bet that didn’t come close to what you expected compared to the one billion dollar image, did it? Amazing.


  1. And just think, the FED gave 3 banks 4.5 Trillion dollars due to a liquidity crisis in the 4th quarter of 2019, 4 months before the covid pandemic was “official”. So what was the liquidity crisis that the 3 largest banks in the country had you ask??? No clue, the FED has refused to give an explanation and has even gone further refusing the name the banks, despite the regulations stating they must do so. They also don’t have to report it for 2 years!!! So ask yourselves this, why would Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, and CitiGroup need 4.5 Trillion dollars from the government with 0 explanation? How much of your money did they gamble away for them to need so much money?
