金钱有多大?

货币有多大?

With the advent of online payment systems and the rise of debit cards, physical currency may seem like a relic of a bygone era. But right now, there’s still a lot of it going around.

Let’s examine how the total amount of United States, 欧元, 日元, and total worldwide currency actually looks. Spoiler alert: it’s big.

美元

The United States dollar is the world's most traded currency, with 1.61 trillion dollars circulating in coinage and notes.1, 2

So, how big is a dollar?

Stacked together, the 39.8 billion notes currently in circulation would take up 1.8 million cubic feet of space.5, 6

That amount of currency would fill 20 Olympic-sized swimming pools...7

...and would overflow the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool in the US Capital.7

欧元

The euro is the second most popular traded currency in the world, and the most popular in 欧元pe.8

有82.3 billion €50 notes in circulation.

So, how big is the 欧元? At 16.5 square inches each, all the €50 notes could completely cover New York City...

or the city of Indianapolis...

...or blanket the entire landscape of Badlands National Park. 11-13

日元

The Japanese yen is third most traded currency in the world, and the most popular in Asia.14

那么,日元有多大呢?

有12.4 million ¥1 coins in circulation. Stacked on top of each other, that many coins could line the Las Vegas strip two times... 17, 18

可以爬上太. 珠峰两倍...18

...and that same stack of coins could run the Preakness Stakes race eight times. 18

全球总

There is a name for the total value of worldwide currency stuffed into pockets, lost in couch cushions, and stored in bank vaults. 经济学家称之为“M0”." 19

The M0 for the entire planet hovers around $5 trillion. Let's see what that looks like. 20

Turns out that $5 trillion, or M0, takes up a lot of space. But we have to do a bit of abstracting to properly visualize it.

Let's assume that $5 trillion comes to us in $100 bills.

That M0 stack of bills would weigh twice as much as the Statue of Liberty. 21

Spread out, those bills would cover the entire Grand Canyon... 22

...and laid end-to-end, that M0 measure of $100 bills would circle all of planet Earth 194 times. 23

Now that's a lot of dough.
