During the Clinton years, most of the gold in Fort Knox was swapped for bars of Tungsten heavily plated with gold. There is a gold dealer in London that wrote extensively about it. Some of the tungsten coated bars showed up in Hong Kong and a suspicious banker there had a bar drilled for an assay and discovered the scam.
Also there was a guy at Goldman Sachs that maintained the list of all the serial numbers of every gold bar in circulation. He mysteriously disappeared around the same time and has never been heard from again as far as I know.
