    As the title says, what is the most amount of money you have ever held in your hands, doesnt have to be yours, just the most cold hard cash!

    I used to handle money regularly when i used to work for the local airlines here in Hawaii, when the banks would transfer from one island to the next, but the most was 10 million i believe it was 6-8 bags, HEAVY BAGS!

    How much have you had in your hands?:eek:

    I used to be the vault teller at a bank headquarters. I don't know exactly how much, but it was 10's of millions.

    In my personal life, I recently got an inheritance, and the check was just north of 22k. I didn't hang onto it long though, I deposited that thing REAL quick.

    Not much. Probably $4000 or so. I don't drain my savings just so I can take a picture of the bills in my hand.

    Did you used to work for Aloha?

    Never handled a stack of cash that large


    but I've held two Panama commemorate $50 octagonal gold coins, both in MS condition... net value of over $500,000.
    Never gonna hold two things so small, but worth so much..

    ~20,000. I used to work as a CSS at a burlington coat factory and had to help count the safe a few times. Most of my own money was 6,000 when buying my truck (also gave my mom my old truck to make up for the missing 2k).

    About $15,000. I used to work at a Raising Cane's (chicken finger restaurant) and would have to count down the registers after closing.

    I work at a bank and the most you can fit in your hands is probably like 100k in 100's... So to answer your question, it would be 100k.
