How Much Gold Is There In The World?

Gold is such a wonderful and diverse metal, it's not just used for some of the most incredible jewellery but is actually reserved by countries all over the world. Why? Gold is reserved as a sort of back up, should a country be down on money (essentially). It's like a long term investment, so if the price of gold rises they can trade some of their gold for cold hard cash. Below is an infographic that looks as a handful of countries, known for their gold reserves, showing how much they actually have with an interesting fact or two about gold itself. It is interactive so have a look and click on the countries.

Who do you think has the most gold?

  3. This is really fascinating looking at the different countries. Interesting that Australia store their gold with the Bank of England. I expected them to have a lot more gold for some reason!

    1. Welsh gold is beautiful, traditionally it has a rose gold hue due to the copper alloy mix.

  7. I am shocked about Frances Germany and Italy's total, I thought we would have about the same amount.
