Each player receives $1,500 at the beginning of a game of Monopoly. This money is distributed so that each participant has two $500 bills, two $100 bills, two $50 bills, six $20 bills, five $10 bills, five $5 bills and five $1 bills.

There can be up to eight players receiving this distribution of money. After the money is given to the players, the rest of the money goes to the bank. The money in the bank is managed by a player who is also deemed the "Banker" for the game. The bank itself contains $15,140 in cash. These numbers apply to a standard game of Monopoly, made by Hasbro.
