I bet at some point you were wondering how much gold is there in the world. I know I have. I shall wonder no more, as the awesome guys at demonocracy published a bunch of stunning 3D visualizations of gold compared to everyday objects.

The gold plates represent: 1 Gram, 2 Grams, 10 Grams, 20 Grams and 1 Troy Oz (31 grams)

The gold plates represent: 50 Grams, 100 Grams, 250 Grams, 500 Grams and 1KG

The gold bar weighs 400 Troy Oz (12.44kg, 27.42lbs) and its worth $800,000.

This is 1 Ton of gold and it's worth $64.3 million.

10 Tonnes of gold vs. 100 Tonnes of gold.

$2,130,952,380 = B2 bomber = 33.14 Tonnes of gold

The 8,133.5 Tonnes of US gold reserves have an official book value worth $11,041,059,958 - $11 billion

The image above represents world government gold reserves.

All the gold in the world mined in history: 166,500 Tonnes stacked in 400oz gold bars.

If all the gold ever mined was melted into a solid cube, the cube with sides of 20.5m would fit in an Olympic swimming pool. The small gold sphere, in front of the cash couch, weighs 1 metric ton exactly, with a value over $50 Million dollars!

Now that's sh*t loads of gold!
