The World’s Gold [CHART]

The World’s Gold first appeared on Floating Path.

The total amount of mined gold in the entire world is somewhere in the ballpark of 175,000 metric tonnes (1,2,3,4,5). There are 32,151.7466 troy ounces in a tonne, giving us a total of 5,626,380,655 troy ounces of gold in existence.

After peaking in August 2011 at $1,826, the price per troy ounce of gold today is about $1,206. That means the value of all the gold in the world today is approximately $6.788 trillion.

As pointed out by @RudyHavenstein, there is a possibility that the U.S. Federal Reserve could end up carrying more assets on its balance sheet than the total value of gold in existence, should the price of gold continue to decline (or the Fed’s assets continue to increase).

The Fed is currently sitting on $4.408 trillion in reserves, which means that its balances would surpass the gold market at a gold price of $783.42 per troy ounce.
