A muggle with a lot of time on their hands calculated how much the wizard money from Harry Potter is worth in actual dollars. The line between reality and the Harry Potter world continues to blur, as fans keep getting to experience the books in real life. Someone already calculated the tuition price for Hogwarts. A lucky few fans enjoyed Christmas dinner in the Great Hall, and now you can ask the sorting hat which house you belong to.

The approximate exchange rate for wizard money was determined by Redditor aubieismyhomie, who tallied all the purchases from the books, then compared and converted the items you can buy in the real world (candy, bus fare, etc.). Once that was established, they could then estimate how much all the famous transactions were actually worth.
