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).
$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.
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 is concerned and interested in getting back home the Gold it stores with the Federal Reserve. 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

– Stacked in 400oz Gold Bars
All the Gold in the world, displayed in 400oz bullion bars.
Keep in mind the Gold bars have a lot of wasted space between them,
making the stacks of gold appear larger than they really are.

– In a Solid Gold Cube If all the gold ever mined was melted into a solid cube,
the cube with sides of 20.5m would fit in an Olympic Swimming Pool.
The small gold sphere, in front of the cash couch, weighs 1 metric ton exactly, with a value
over $50 Million dollars.
