Gold Production & Reserves
(Map shows yearly production in kg)
Many doubt the stability of the current financial system and predict a prominent role for gold in any future financial system. Here an overview of who produces how much. A few observations:
– With a current (Nov 2013) gold price of 1000 euro, 1 ton of gold represents 35 million euro.
– One glance at the map reveals why Mali is interesting for France (gold, uranium).

These figures are to be taken with a grain of salt. A lot of western European gold is stored in the US, which refuses to allow verification, not even to members of Congress.

Where is the gold?
USA – Grave doubts exist concerning the real physical presence of gold in Fort Knox or elsewhere.
The Netherlands – Official reserve: 654 ton. The Dutch Central Bank however merely holds 67 ton within its own walls, the rest is officially located at the Federal Reserve in New York, the Bank of England and the Bank of Canada in Ottawa, that is Anglosphere, as a result of WW2.
