The Money Bin is a building in Duckburg.


The Money Bin is a large cubic building sitting on top of Killmotor Hill, just where Fort Duckburg once stood, dominating the city. It is where Scrooge McDuck keeps most of his cash, treasures, memorabilia, and other parts of the building are used for offices and also for Scrooge's own living quarters. As near as Grandpa Beagle recalled, the Bin was built in 1902 by Scrooge according to blueprints by local architect Frank Lloyd Drake; it was destroyed countless times over the years, but, with a few exceptions, always built back according to the same old 1902 blueprints, to save on costs. A legend states, however, that Scrooge McDuck designed the Bin's defence system all by himself, so that none but he would know its every nook and cranny.

Behind the scenesEdit

The Money Bin was first seen in 1951's The Big Bin on Killmotor Hill, though other similar buildings of Scrooge's not located on the hill had been seen as early as 1950's The Pixilated Parrot.

Ironically, the Bin in The Big Bin on Killmotor Hill is not one of the 1902 model's copies, but a temporary attempt at improving it; it was broken at the end of the story and presumably rebuilt according to the old blueprints.

The Beagle Boys Vs. the Money Bin (2001) stated that the Bin's blueprints had been the work of Frank Lloyd Drake. This was seemingly contradicted in 2019 by an article in the French Mickey Parade Géant #369, which, in answer to a reader's question of who had designed the Money Bin, answered that a legend stated it was Scrooge himself, so that he and only he would know about all of its secret defenses and booby-traps. It can be presumed, to reconcile both accounts, that the legend was somewhat imprecise, and Drake did design the building as such while Scrooge designed the defenses alone.
