Yes, there is a dollar amount, but it can vary depending on your location. In California, grand theft is the taking of money, services or property of $400 or more.

Grand theft is taking something that does not belong to you, it is taking something that has a value. Grand theft is a crime and the time you can receive behind it is determined by your record and by the amount that you stole.

This varies between states, and can be as little as $200 (Vermont)$400-(California) and up. In most states, theft of a firearm is always Grand Theft, or motor vehicle theft, and theft of bovine animals regardless of cost, probably because the owner's well-being or livelihood depend on them. Check your state.
