This is the ending of one of the best Uncle Scrooge stories ever written, and one that pretty much sums up Scrooge McDuck.

I do like seeing Scrooge being so happy when he dives into his money like a porpoise, and burrows in it like a gopher, and especially when he throws it up in the air and lets it hit him on the head.

Michael Barrier has written a very nice essay on the genius of Scrooge’s creator, Carl Barks.
