How Much Gold in the World 🌍


Recommended Posts

It's no secret that the world's supply of physical gold is limited. Gold is incredibly rare, making up about 0.003 parts per million of the earth's crust. The World Gold Council (WGC) estimates as of 2017 that around 187,200 tons of gold have already been mined, two-thirds of which were mined in the last 70 years or so. And since gold is virtually indestructible, this means that almost all of this finite yellow metal is still around in one form or another. Pack this gold together and you’ve got a cube that measures about 21 meters on each side. A cube this size would fit comfortably in the middle of a baseball field. As far as the amount of gold that remains in the earth, the U.S. Geological Survey estimates that there are about 57,000 tons left to be mined.
