A Ton of Money

What it is:

"A ton of money" is a slang term for "a lot of money."

How it works (Example):

For example, if something is very expensive, you might say, "It costs a ton of money." If you're optimistic about a new investment, you might say, "This stock is going to make me a ton of money."

The phrase does not refer to the actual, literal weight of the money, but to the idea that it would take a big pile of currency to get to 2,000 pounds (one ton).
