Paper currency weighs 1 gram regardless of the denomination. One pound contains 454 bills, so a stack of \$100 bills that weighs 1 pound has a value of \$45,400. Dividing \$1 million by 45,400 results in a weight of 22.02 pounds. One could easily fit \$1 million in cash into a rolling suitcase for travel, though electronic bank transfers are generally used instead of cash for transactions involving large sums of money.
