I'm still wondering how they got this much Gold?

Is this pre-WWII Gold or after ?

Germany's gold was shipped to the USA just after the war, (WW2) where they got all there present gold from beats me. Unless its payment for goods.

$7,680,000,000
Based on$1600/oz

Very rough


That's what I came up with as well. 7.5 billion dollars. Not that much money at all when you're
talking about a country's wealth or GDP....but I still wouldn't want to have to load it into a truck.....

Weren't there some tungsten bars found that should have been gold in Fort Know ?


Some Gold bars purchased by China were supposedly found to have small Tungsten cores. Also, some Gold purchased from Russia recently had "Rust stains" The Questions I have, if you're referring to Fort Knox, Is there really ANY gold still there or as much as believed still there?

My thought exactly........ive been reading a lot of this.....

Thers a lot of fake gold coming in and out, even more then there use to be..........so where the hell did it go and who has it?

I would say this would be really bad for America, but since were are bound and determined not to be on the gold stardard anymore, im not sure what hte implications would be........

That is unless all these countries wanting their gold back, got none cause we dont have it, or fake gold in return......

That would be very very bad for us

I hear some of it came from the Jews after they killed them. I.E. gold fillings, gold watches, jewelry etc.

This looks bad and is likely the result of reports of gold bars being filled with tungsten. Now, everybody is going to be doing some very close inspection of exactly how much gold they have and how many fakes have been pawned off on them.
The gold market used to be extremely reliable and precise. The phrase "good as gold" actually meant something up until recently. Now we're having our doubts about the entire basis of our world economy?
This may send tremors through world markets making them weaker than ever.
Currency wars are going in to full gear shortly, hang on to your hats people.


What you are saying sounds really scary .

Panning for gold is only one way of getting the stuff, then there's mining, dredging, and a few other methods. In most cases, you get maybe an ounce or less per tom, and often times it IS less. Panning for a day, you can fill a vile if you hit it big or discover a nugget or two. The point is, you usually get in very small amounts for the amount of work you do. But still it's a lot of fun for hobby prospectors. Have you ever thought how much work it would be to get just a pound? How about a hundred pounds. Then a tons worth........ And we are talking one hundred and fifty tons here..............

Can someone do some quick math? I'm driving currently for my job, but what does 150 tons of gold work out to in USA or Canadian dollars?


You can check the internet and post a reply while driving but can't do a calculation?

Gold is the only thing that gives our failing economy any value these days. Without gold, our paper currency is worthless. Our dollar is fragile enough as it is, and Germany thinks we're just gonna throw the gold at them?


Wow.
We have a name for people like you where I come from.
Thief.

You do realise they just want their property back?

My mind goes all over the place with this one.

First, I wonder if this has anything to do with the newest Executive Order I just read where if any one including foreign entities were to help Iran then all their assets here would become ours

The I wonder about that ATS thread a while back where we discussed how the Federal Reserve had a 100 year contract with our government to handle our money which would conclude this December.

Either way, doesnt look good. Not sure I blame them though. I dont trust our banks either.

For purpose of calculation I assumed metric tons. Not sure if that is correct but it seemed right to me. The spot price of gold today is $1780.68 per troy ounce. So the value in USD is $8,240,300,672.16

There goes the deficit again...

I doubt it's theirs to begin with. They probably stole it and killed for it.

After WWII America loaned a lot of money out to different countries. Most told us to kiss their ass. I think it is time for payback. Germany caused so much destruction around the world that i believe nobody owes them a damn thing.
