Even with magic, money is still critical to the lives of characters in the Harry Potter universe. Some have it much easier than others.
Even in a world filled with magic, money is still power. Fans are introduced to characters from all walks of life in the Harry Potter series, but there's no denying that it is the rich (and normally the Pure-Bloods) who hold the keys to wizarding society. Just see Voldemort's lineup of wealthy Death Eaters for proof.
Not everyone in the top 1% of the wizarding world comes from old money though. While there are those descended from generations of Pure-Blood aristocracy with a bursting Gringotts vault to prove it, others rely on a 9 to 5 to get by just like us wand-less Muggles. Wherever they get their cash, some definitely have more to go around than others.
While the Weasleys aren’t known for their wealth, Fred and George first started turning a profit at school before using their talents for mischief to open Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes. Despite only being open for a matter of months, it's one of the few Diagon Alley stores thriving in Half-Blood Prince and makes a killing within the Hogwarts community.
Hundreds of orders are also placed from the Ministry for the joke shop's more practical, anti-dark magic line. With the biggest possible client in wizarding Britain on their side, it's no wonder the pair are already living a lifestyle filled with dragon-skin jackets and gold jewelry in their first year of business.
The first time fans meet Slughorn, he’s squatting in a Muggle home to evade Death Eaters. What should be a miserable situation is still pretty luxurious, as Slughorn is loaded with gifts from decades of priming his most promising students for success.
50 years' worth of salary as both one of Hogwarts' best Potions Masters and Head of Slytherin — as well as the fact Hogwarts staff get free room and board — means he must have plenty of savings. Add on his prestigious Pure-Blood heritage confirmed in Short Stories from Hogwarts of Power, Politics and Pesky Poltergeists, and he's one of the wealthiest characters in the series.
Being the most intelligent headmaster in Hogwarts' history must come with a decent paycheck. Even though Dumbledore doesn't live the flashiest of lifestyles, he spends around 30 years at the helm of Britain's only wizarding school, earning what is surely one of the best salaries in the country.
Considering he also seems to live there full-time, it's safe to assume he has little to no expenses. This already makes him wealthy, but he also moonlights as Supreme Mugwump of the International Confederation of Wizards and the Chief Warlock of the Wizengamot. Only somebody this brilliant could juggle three such powerful positions, and the financial reward must be steep.
Ollivander isn't just regarded as the best wandmaker in the UK, but the entire world. This kind of prestige attracts high traffic and his shop in Diagon Alley is the first port of call for every young witch and wizard looking to buy their first wand.
Based on these sales alone, Ollivander doesn't make a fortune. Each costs just 10 galleons, and most people only purchase one in their lifetime. However, the science of wands is a serious subject. As the wizarding world's top wandlore expert - in demand from Voldemort himself - he can command a hefty fee.
Even if Lockhart's money-making method wasn't the most moral in the world, its effectiveness is undeniable. By stealing the stories of amazing (yet not commercially attractive) wizards before removing their memories, his fake heroic tales became bestsellers that made him a household name.
In addition to book royalties, Lockhart was also pulling in fees for appearances and book signings, not to mention a year's salary for being one of the worst Hogwarts professors. If his memory charm hadn't backfired in Chamber of Secrets, his scheme would inevitably have continued to rake in more cash for years to come.
As the last remaining descendent of the House of Black, Sirius inherits centuries of gold, heirlooms, and unwanted Pure-Blood prejudice. In addition to his ancestral home of 12 Grimmauld Place, he possesses all that was left to him by his Uncle Alphard. Even though his family disowned him, he also has the contents of his family vault thanks to the male line of inheritance.
While it's never explicitly revealed how much this contains, it has to be a sizeable amount. Only the wealthiest of families own House-elves, and the Black family has owned them for decades. Also, Sirius has enough gold to casually gift Harry the broom equivalent of a sports car in Prisoner of Azkaban.
The Boy Who Lived is many things, including rich. Not only is he the heir to the Potter family fortune, but later inherited everything Sirius owned. Harry is awed at his own wealth in Sorcerer's Stone and wastes no time in delving in, treating his friends to expensive gifts without a second thought.
It's tough to put a number on his net worth, but fans have given it a lot of thought. One Reddit theory places it at around $1,265,625.00. Even without a precise comparison to real-world currency, the fact he could give away 1000 galleons to Fred and George without blinking suggests he's extremely comfortable. With a successful career in magical law enforcement, this definitely didn't change after defeating Voldemort.
According to the Sacred Twenty-Eight - a list provided by Rowling through Pottermore - the Malfoys are one of the most powerful families in wizarding Britain. Their wealth is what gives both Lucius and his son Draco their arrogance and allows them to throws their fortunes in the faces of those less well off, such as the Weasleys.
A lot of this money may have come from Narcissa's side of the family, the Blacks, but Lucius definitely has his own riches. He doesn't work, yet is the master of Malfoy Manor, and previously owned his own House-elf. Prior to Voldemort's return, he is among society's most influential wizards, rubbing shoulders with Fudge despite previously being a known Death Eater. It's funny what multiple big donations can make people forget.
Before Bellatrix got married, she was known as Bellatrix Black. As the eldest of three sisters, Bellatrix was first in line to inherit their parents' possessions when they died. She also would have merged her assets with those of her husband, Rodolphus Lestrange (another bloodline featured in the Sacred Twenty-Eight).
The most convincing proof lies in Bellatrix's vault. Gringotts is already difficult to steal from, but Bellatrix's money and heirlooms lie in the bank's high-security levels, reserved for items important enough to be guarded by a dragon. Its contents include towers of gold, jewels, and treasures, incomparable to anything else seen in the series. She has more than enough to support her for life, which is lucky seeing as it's doubtful Voldemort pays even his most powerful Death Eater a salary.
Despite being critical to the first Harry Potter movie, audiences only met the creator of the Sorcerer's Stone in Fantastic Beasts: Crimes of Grindelwald. The alchemist has been around since 1330 and with the Stone managed to create an elixir to grant eternal life and transform any metal into pure gold.
What this essentially means is unlimited money. By the time Flamel is forced to destroy the Stone to keep it from Voldemort's grasp, he's been alive for over 600 years, which is enough time to produce unimaginable quantities of money. This is the only known item like it in the wizarding world, putting Flamel in a league of his own.
