A day without looking at me Money Bin is like a day without sunshine!
Scrooge McDuck[src]

The Money Bin is a large storage building where Scrooge McDuck houses his three cubic acres of cash. Scrooge has a great affection for his money, and his favorite hobby is to dive and swim around in the money in his bin. The building and the surrounding lot are full of booby traps, burglar alarms and other contraptions to fight off Scrooge's countless uninvited guests, like panhandlers, beggars, door-to-door salesmen and, most importantly, crooks who try to break into the Bin (most often the Beagle Boys). It was originally featured in the Uncle Scrooge comic book stories created by Carl Barks. It has also been featured in many of Scrooge's animated appearances, such as Scrooge McDuck and Money, Sport Goofy in Soccermania, and DuckTales.



The heavily guarded entrance to Scrooge's money Bin in Carl Barks' The Big Bin on Killmotor Hill.

As shown in Don Rosa's 1994 comic The Invader of Fort Duckburg, the Money Bin was built shortly after Scrooge moved to Duckburg. In the DuckTales episode "Once Upon a Dime", Scrooge reveals that he built the bin because he had entered the diamond market and could no longer sleep at night because all the money he was storing under his mattress raised his bed too close to the ceiling, necessitating a more suitable storage facility for his money. Scrooge's favorite pastime is to dive off a springboard into his money and swim through it.

The traditional location of the Money Bin is on top of Killmotor Hill. The money bin sits atop Futterman's Fault, a fault line which would prove catastrophic in the event of an earthquake. In the 2017 reboot series, the bin was moved to a secluded island location off the coast of Duckburg. It also features a boardroom where Scrooge meets with his executives and two basements floors. The first known as the McDuck Archive and the second is Gyro Gearloose's underwater lab.[1]

Other design elements[]

  • In "The Trouble with Dimes" (1951) by Carl Barks, the Petty Cash Vault is a separate room with millions of coins, accessible from Scrooge's office.
  • In "Statuesque Spendthrifts" (1952) by Carl Barks, the Petty Cash Safe is a room above the main storage that holds three cubic acres of money. There is a mechanism to lift the floor of the Petty Cash Safe, revealing the money below.



  • Flintheart Glomgold, too, has a Money Bin, located in South Africa. Flintheart's Money Bin is similar to Scrooge's, but it has a pound symbol (£) instead of a dollar sign. It, along with Glomgold himself, first appeared in the 1956 comic book story "The Second-Richest Duck" by Carl Barks.
  • The reason Scrooge stores all his money in the Money Bin is because he doesn't trust banks.
  • In the DuckTales reboot, it is mentioned that Scrooge spends $15,000,000 a year for protection against magic on the security of the bin, as apparently, he has acquired a long list of vengeance curses (most likely from several treasures he's raided), much to the confusion of his board.
  • In DuckTales the Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp, when Dijon wished for Scrooge's fortune. A Giant "D" was on the bin resembling a dollar sign.
