But one thing has always troubled me. Just how rich is Scrooge McDuck? Well buckle up, Theorists, because after days of research, hours of math, and a few good refreshing swims in the old money bin I have finally discovered the answer!

    If the bin is just full of gold, there must be some point where the sheer weight of the top levels of gold malformed the gold below it, pushing out the air voids and becoming denser. There should some simple calculus you can do based on gold’s malleability.
    Earlier this year I went to the site of Duckburg, according to Don Rosa, and got some great shots of Killmotor hill.

      That would decrease his wealth science the coins at the bottom are old and thus rare, making them more valuable than the gold they are made of to collectors.

      @Tried6Times (GeT mE To 5K) yeah, at least in tbe netherlands there was a comic where it turned out there was a sinkhole pretty deep underground. And with "pretty deep" i mean VERY deep. One of the walls collaped and he flooded a chunk of duckberg in cash. After that point he got gyro to whip him up some walls that could withstand a LOT of abuse.

      @DisThoughts it’s true, I was really into the comics when I was younger, I’m Dutch btw, and the comics mention that a large bulk of Scrooge mcducks money pit is in the form of other currencies, like Ancient Greek and Roman coins, the person who cleans all the coins (Donald duck) goes deep into the pit to find coins like that, landing on coins that although taking up the exact same space as other coins, are much more valuable, with some going into the thousands for 1 coin, and although matpat has done an impressive and commendable effort, he fails to calculate many of such things. Btw fun fact (in the Dutch comics, the area around Scrooge mcducks money house is filled with various mines and other traps, and Scrooge can be seen defending his house with a shotgun XD a little less child friendly)

    The blueprints suggest that the ladder comes down to the bottom of the vault shaft. But in the scenes, Scrooge stands on his coins and grabs ahold of the bottom rung. This is much more consistent with the first method of only 10 feet deep, and its also on par with Forbes estimate.

    I remember one comic where Uncle Scrooge gave Donald a bag of coins that he thought were worthless but Donald found out that the coins were super rare so Donald was getting rich selling the coins to coin shops. So of all the coins in the vault, the rarity of the bottom coins might up his wealth by significant amounts too.

    As someone who's been growing up with the original Ducktales Cartoon and the comic books I've always been wondering how rich Scrooge McDuck is. So thanks for having made this video. Even tho the amount definitely isn't be the exact amount he owns, I think it still probably will be somewhere near what he owns.
    I also heard about the Ducktales reboot but I never really bothered checking it out because I didn't believe it would live up to it's predecessor. But now I think I'll check it out just to see if it's a good reboot. If it is I may even watch it fully just because of how much I loved the original Ducktales cartoon.
    Funfact: Scrooge MCDuck's German name is also Dagobert Duck.

    I went on disney wiki and it says. "In "The Menehune Mystery", Donald gives the only time Scrooge's net worth has been mathematically represented, saying that Scrooges wealth amounted to $500,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000.16 (five hundred quattuorvigintillion dollars and sixteen cents)"

      so if he apparently has that much, why does the official description for the ducktales TV show (2017) say that he's a trillionare?
      edit: also I'm pretty sure he once said that if he lost 1 billion dollars every minute, then he'd be broke in ~600 years.
      Edit 2: I was wrong, Scrooge said he runs a multi trillion dollar business

    In the episode "Escape from the ImpossiBin!", we see Scrooge put a password in to turn the trap off, and it was a 26 digit password. Later on in the episode Bradford said that the password was a sum of ALL of Scrooge's total wealth.
    So Scrooge is actually an Octillionaire.
    PS: Even though Scrooge got the password wrong, I believe he only got the NUMBERS wrong, as remembering how many digits it had would be very simple.
    Just something I'd like to throw out there

    Seems that lots of people who were rich later in life started out with jobs such as shoe shiners. Jobs that were meticulous and required time was probably the best teachers for it. Patience is a virtue and a tool few can wield. Everything requires some amount of time and it's easy to forget that in a culture of Veruca Salt's.

    As someone who has reade over 100 000 pages of Donald duck I can easily say that they mention his fortune hundreds of times and its almost always different. Happy to finally see someone trying to figure out it wealth even thought he owns a bit (lol) more than.

    MatPat is the BEST! He does so much research for these videos and puts a lot of time and effort into these videos.

      Well, not always. Don't misunderstand me, I love MatPat. But there are just some of his theories that just don't have enough research to make them believable enough.

    I like how instead of being 1 of the smartest teachers he decided to become a youtuber that counts how much gold a fictional character or sees if turning young boys into donkeys is worth a profit

    I wasn’t a kid in the 90’s, I was actually born in 2009 but I still grew up on Ducktales, Gummi Bears, and Chip & Dale. I’m glad my parents let me watch these shows since none of my friends have ever seen these shows.

    Ok, this is a fairly old theory by now, but since i didn't see someone else mention it in the comments: Since Scrooge has a dime it is to asume that the gold coins probably not made of pure gold rather than some other materials like every other currency we know today. Also in -at least- the german verion they refer to it as 'Taler' wich was an acutal currency somehere around 1900. That would mean that the weight is irrelevant due to the coins only have the value of what the coin says it have and he probably don't have only coins with the same value.
