Note: I'm certain I've given away more dice than I currently own in the nearly forty years I've been playing D&D...
That said...

Currently 336... (And thank you so very much for triggering my OCD and making me count them all, lol)

That number will be climbing by 45 when the six sets of dice I ordered from China eventually arrive.

I collect old dice, pretty colors, unusual sizes and odd dice - I still have a couple dice from my first Basic set as well as some dice from Star Frontiers, I have large dice that are hollow and have smaller dice inside them, I have the usual unusual suspects (d30, d100), I have blank bone-colored dice that someday will be the victim of the scrimshaw kit I acquired years ago, I have a large 50mm orange foam Loot Crate d20, I have dice from the PotC game (d6s w/ skulls on the six), I have rochambeau dice with rock/paper/scissors hands on them, I have a d6 who's pips are pink Breast Cancer Awareness ribbons, a pair of d6s on which one has all the odd numbers written as negative (-1, 2, -3, 4, etc.) and the other has negative even numbers, a d6 with a bird instead of the 6, and two d6s with the numbers spelled out in Turkish (bir, iki, uc, dort, bes, alti)... I'm sure I've missed a couple of my more interesting dice.

The largest die I own is the 50mm Loot Crate d20, while the smallest are about 6mm.

Currently, I have about 150-200 dice but I have backed 3 dice Kickstarters for which I am awaiting the rewards. So about another 100 dice are coming my way in the next 6 months.....

My prize dice possession is the three dice in my bag that came with the Moldvay basic box I started playing D&D with in the 80's. No crayon.
Yes, I recently found my dice from my original purchase back in the day (my friend got the Holmes, so I must have bought mine at the hobby store). Some do have crayon, some don't. One of the d20s is more like a sphere.

And nowadays there's no real limits to numbers of dice for anyone with their own 3-D printer and some time...
Bazooka to swat a fly territory, there.

An entry level 3D printer is $200-$400. A set of molds to cast your own dice costs under $10.

A friend of mine, his daughter makes her own dice. She's got molds, she melts whatever it is dice are made of, puts in weird colors and glitter and other stuff. They come out pretty cool, tbh. It's her hobby. And she's got a LOT of dice...

No idea what the exact number is, but 100-500 is a safe bet. I've been playing RPGs for 40 years, and though I don't think I've ever "collected" dice per se, I've definitely acquired a lot of them.

I don't buy them frequently, but I'm not at all opposed to buying a special set for a specific character or game. Off the top of my head in the last 5 years, I've probably bought 2 sets as gifts, 1 cube set of D6s to sit with my copy of The Quiet Year, a set of Fudge Dice, 2 or 3 sets as parts of Kickstarters, and a Die Rolling App that was almost immediately lost amidst the other die rollers I have on my phone and I will probably never use in a game, but I wanted to support the creator.

I probably own about 50 dice that I have for my own use. But I have also taught D&D at summer camp, which involved buying an extra 12 cheapo sets and a few odds and ends. And, of course, once there is an excuse to have extras I started buying nicer ones for myself (nothing fancy, I'm just particular about the weight a d20 should have in one's hand and want my other dice color coded by type so that I never have to think twice about which one's which) and retiring the others to be used for camp or new players, or just to be given away.

At least with the pandemic I'm not regularly meeting in game stores for 4-8 hours and browsing dice and minis for the sake of buying something and the place near my house that sells all dice 5 for a dollar has been closed.

I am merely guessing at my total, which I put at 100-500. Could be more. Besides culling the 6-siders from all the family board games that got tossed over the years, I know I’ve purchased enough sets of mini 6-siders to but me over the 100 dice mark by themselves. And I often bought spare boxes of 6s to match standard die sets.

I’ve got them sorted into buckets AND bags: buckets are for sharing, but the bags are my personal stash. Not that I won’t share my bagged dice, ‘cause I will if asked. I just have the buckets so people don’t have to.

This is most of mine as it stands now. The blue bag in the front (now filled with d6’s) was the first dice bag I owned, and it held my plastic BX/BEMCI set dice for many years.

Funnily enough, I didn’t get the Crown Royal bag until recently - one of my gamers gave it to me as a gift because “it was a crime I didn’t have one” :)

Not enough. (Less than 50, to be more specific. I've had too many lost or "borrowed" or whatever so that doesn't help.)
You need to rectify that situation ASAP. No self-respecting gamer should own less than 50. Shame on you.

;)

Oh, geeze, I have one brick of 36, and another of 12 right in my line of sight - that's 48 right there.

And, I just gave into the urge for some retail therapy, and ordered six sets of polyhedrals, colors inspired by classic NASA pictures of nebulae, which is 42 on the way.

Mind you, I am just coming out of many years of not buying any dice at all, so...

Oh, I was just figuring in my D&D dice. I've got a metric ton of 6-siders from playing Warhammer 40K and some mechanic-specific ones from WH40K and Dust 1947.
