Gold - Visualized in Bullion Bars
There's surprisingly little Gold in the world & this infographic shows all the Gold ever mined.
In this Gold infographic everything is calculated with Gold price at $2000/oz.
When Gold reaches $3110/oz, 1 oz of Gold & a $100 bill will have equal value in weight,
and it won't matter if you have 1oz of $100 bills or 1oz of Gold.
Gold is usually measured in Troy Ounces. A Troy Ounce is about 1.09 regular Ounces.
Gold - Size Chart
This is a chart of standard Gold bullion size comparison.
The cubes are measured by volume & Gold weight of 19.30 g/cm−3.
The plates are typical Gold bar dimensions of same Gold weight.

10 Tonnes of Gold vs 100 Tonnes
The Central Banks of western countries usually handle their nations' large Gold Reserves. Couple generations ago the US dollar was backed by Gold, so the Fed had to hold Gold. Today, the dollar is backed by the confidence in United States' repayment of its debt (bonds). The US Central Bank's- The Federal Reserve's Chairman Ben Bernanke, says that Gold is only held as a tradition and that Gold is not money.

Semi Truck 'full' of Gold - 24.88 Tonnes
The legal carry weight of a semi-truck is between 22-25 tonnes.
The truck is carrying 24.88 tonnes of Gold worth $1.6 Billion dollars @ $2000/oz (on the 2nd truck).



$1.6 Billion

24.88 Tonnes of Gold
Same value as $1.6 Billion @ $2000/oz.







$2,130,952,380 = B2 Bomber = 33.14 Tonnes of Gold @ $2000 / oz
Couple years back when Gold was less valuable, a B2 Bomber was literally worth more than its weight in pure Gold. With the price of Gold going up,
finally Gold is more valuable in weight than a B2 Bomber.
The Northrop Grumman B2 Spirit Bomber program cost $44.75 Billion for a total of 21 units built, that averages to $2,130,952,380 per unit and the same value in Gold @ $2000/oz can be seen on the semi-trucks on the right. To the left you see a Semi truck with $2.13 Billion dollars.
Doesn't matter how you choose economically between the semi truck of cash, the Gold trucks or the B2 Bomber, they're all worth the same.






US Gold Reserves - 8,133.5 Tonnes
The 8,133.5 Tonnes of Gold Reserves have an official book value worth $11,041,059,958
($11 Billion) as of 1/11/2013
and are shown below.

Year 1933, in the Pillar of Human Civilization & Capitalism-- The United States of America,
Gold possession was criminalized. Shortly after confiscating the Gold, the US devalued
Gold from $20.67/oz to $35/oz, by so devaluing the US dollar by 70% overnight. The US Dollar 'Federal Reserve Note' still said "Redeemable in Gold", while doing so got you arrested.
USA was on the Gold Standard until 1971. Gold possession remained illegal until 1975.

The arguably real intention of criminalizing Gold was because the Federal Reserve printed too many dollars, backed by a limited amount of Gold. People knew Gold was worth more than the $20.67/oz that US Government was 'redeeming' (selling) Gold at.

Gold Reserves
This Gold values shown are official numbers from Wikipedia.
There is a strong chance the numbers are inaccurate since western world's Central Banks have purportedly leased out the Gold reserves while using accounting tricks to hide the facts, in order to push the Gold price down. Gold price is an indirect indicator of economic stability, the lower the price, the more stable the global economy appears.

Developing countries have been buying significant amounts of Gold in recent years, with India being #1 and China #2.
The Federal Reserve Bank of New York holds 540,000 Gold bars. Germany stores 45% of their Gold with Federal Reserve, while according to official memo from Bank of England to Federal Reserve it is acknowledged that Gold delivered back to Germany has been 'bad delivery' bars, instead of 'good delivery'. Germany & Switzerland are concerned and are interested in getting the Gold they store w/ the Fed, back home
A German court has recently demanded audit of Germany's Gold holdings, while the Central Bank of Germany has
begun shipping 50 tonnes of Gold / year back home.
Many other governments are engaging in Gold
hoarding
, including China, who imported
more Gold in 2012
than
all of ECB's holdings.
