The Money Bin


Scrooge McDuck


The Money Bin is located on the top of Killmotor Hill, Duckberg

First Appearance

Last Appearance

Dangerous Currency, Part 4

The building where Scrooge stores his personal money. It contains three cubic acres of cash, and Scrooge's favorite pastime is to dive through [the money] like a porpoise, and burrow through it like a gopher, and toss it up and let it hit me on the head.

Scrooge's homeEdit

Generally, the Bin is the only place where Scrooge is shown to reside in Barks' stories. A few early stories, such as Christmas of Bear Mountain (Scrooge's first appearance), and some other pre-Money Bin stories which are vague on this point, refer to the huge mansion of Scrooge McDuck, but this idea was abandoned as Scrooge's character developed in a different direction. In Egmont stories, Scrooge lives in a fancy mansion and goes to the Money Bin only as a place of recreation, an idea also used in the DuckTales TV show. According to Don Rosa's Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck part 12, Scrooge did have a mansion at the time of Bear Mountain, but sold it immediately after that story and returned to the Money Bin.

Ducktales/Darkwing Duck comics 2011Edit

In first story Arc Rightful Owners the Money Bin is seen only at the beginning at the story Many Happy Returns. After that it is briefly metioned. At the second story arc the Money Bin appears when Magica releases the Slime upon St. Canard. Also at the second part of the crossover the characters move to the Bin so as to find a plan to stop the Villains and the Slime which at that time controlled Huey Louie and Dewey Duck and Honker Muddlefoot, but they were later cured by Scrooge and the others. Simultaneously, Magica and her fellow Villains came to Duckburg and Magica with The Phantom Blot transport the Slime there. With the power of the Slime in matter of seconds she started to transform and taking control of the Money Bin.
