Where is my money stored?

Is most money just numbers on a computer screen? Or do banks actually have cash in their vaults to back up the "digital" money.

I ask because I never see the actual paper or coin money I have - everything is direct deposited and then I use a debit card. I wonder if there is actual paper and coin money enough to match all the money we have that we never physically see or touch.
