The length of a dollar bill is 6.14 inches, and the width is 2.61 inches. If one million dollar bills laid end to end lengthwise, they would extend 96.6 miles. One trillion dollar bills would extend 96,906,656 miles, which is farther than the distance to the sun.

Dollar bills are produced in sheets of 32 notes each and are composed of a blend of 75 percent cotton and 25 percent linen. Each bill weighs one gram; it takes approximately 453.6 bills to equal a pound. The largest note ever produced by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing is the $100,000 gold certificate.
