Worth its Weight in Gold
Throughout the centuries, gold has held a fascination that comes from its beauty and weight. Anyone who has held a gold coin can feel its power and weight. Gold is one of the heaviest metals, and the weight and density often is shocking to those who first hold it. One cubic foot of gold weighs 1,206 pounds, more than a half a ton, which is probably the reason why no large theft of gold bullion has ever occurred.
Gold as the Leading Precious Metal
According to the World Gold Council, best estimates of how much gold there is in the world, suggests around 185,000 metric tons of gold has been mined throughout history, with at least two-thirds having been mined since 1950, which today is sitting in bank vaults, government reserves and personal collections. That sounds like an awful lot until you realize that just one cubic meter, which is a little over 35 cubic feet, weighs approx. 25.25 U.S. Tons. If all the mined gold in the world was poured into a square cube, it would only measure about 70 feet per side. It would take a little over three Olympic swimming pools to hold all the gold ever mined in the world and that more steel is poured in an hour globally, than all the gold ever minted in the world. All minted gold is still around in one form or another, because it is virtually indestructible.
