12 visualizations of gold: size V.S. value

[INFOGRAPHIC] 12 visualizations of gold: weight V.S. value

While gold is synonymous with wealth, it’s astonishing how such a small amount of the yellow metal is worth so much. Thanks to Demonocracy.info, we can now see for ourselves the rarity of gold as shown through a series of 3D visualization of gold bullion bars.

Note: these visualization have gold pegged at $2,000 per ounce, which is currently not the case.

Smaller denominations of gold plates: 1 gram, 5 grams, 10 grams, 20 grams, and 1 troy oz of gold.

Larger denominations of gold plates: 50 grams, 100 grams, 250 grams, 500 grams, and 1 kg of gold.

This 400 oz gold bar, at $2,000 per oz gold, is worth the $800,000 cash beside it. The gold bar is extremely heavy, weighing more than three full milk jugs.

Here’s what one tonne of gold looks like. At $2,000 per oz, it’s worth $64.3 million.

Gold is so heavy that the suspension of an average truck would break if it held anymore than pictured above. Even if the truck’s suspension broke, the load of gold in the back could buy 2,660 brand new trucks at an MSRP of $40,000 per truck.

Here’s 10 tons of gold compared to 100 tons of the yellow metal.

This semi-truck is carrying the maximum load it can legally carry, which is about about 25 tons. Here there are 24.88 tons of gold, worth $1.6 billion.

The Northrop Grumman B2 Spirit Bomber program cost $44.75 billion for a total of 21 units built, which averages to $2,130,952,380 per unit. Shown here is the amount of gold it costs to buy one unit.

Here’s the entire gold reserves of the United States government, which is 8,133.5 tons.

Here’s the world’s gold reserves by government circa 2012. This is slightly outdated, with China and Russia both having significant increases since then.

All gold mined in history, stacked in 400 oz bars. The 166,500 tons here is actually divided into four levels: the bottom level is jewelry (50.5 percent of all gold), the 2nd level is private investment (18.7 percent), the third level is world governments (17.4 percent), and the highest level is other uses for gold such as industry (13.4 percent).

Lastly, we finish off with an image of all of the world’s mined gold in one cube with dimensions of 20.5m. If it was all melted, it would fit within the confines of an Olympic Swimming Pool.
