For some reason, money in fiction, be it coins or paper is often stored inside sacks. These often have a dollar sign in them, despite the location the events take place (the origin of a dollar sign predates the US dollar though). Moreover, often it's gold that's stored inside bags despite it being so heavy that it would be impractical to store it inside sacks.

Those often show up in Western Animation, especially when the bank is being robbed.

Money bags also tend to show up in video games, especially in platform games, although in a lot of those games, they only serve as a mean to gain extra points. Money Bags are still generally absent in role-playing games.
