Amount of gold in the world?

Is it anywhere near accurate?

According to wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gold_reserve there's not that much.

Apparently Australia has 280 metric tons. 280 x 32,150 troy ounces.

The Perth mint sells out of 30,000 one ounce lunars every year, not far of a metric ton in the one ounce variation of one coin.  Take all different variations of all their coins and 280 metric tons doesn't sound like much.

Thoughts?

For a mint like Perth they will have raw gold coming in over the weighbridge. The amount of bullion going out would in a perfect world equal what’s coming in with a margin of profit. Gold in reserve is a buffer.

 

I’d hazard a guess that if every country demanded their gold back from the holding countries the commodities market would kiss it’s arse goodbye.

 

How much real gold is there in the world?

How much “paper” gold is there in the world?

this is with the "CENTRAL BANK" - "perth Mint" is a seperate business and will have its OWN supply/store

By way of example - Canada has basically "SOLD OUT" of gold from the CENTRAL BANK Reserves - But Canadian Mint trade a shedload all the time!

 The REALLY SCARY FIGURES ARE - - - >>

The total value of all gold ever mined would exceed US$7.5 trillion at that valuation and using WGC 2017 estimates.

AND

US debt alone = =$22,505,853,000,000 (22.5 Trillion) ( NOT INCLUDING - unfunded liabilities)  - check it out here - "VIEWER CAUTION" is advised as VERY SCARY!

This why the likes of Jim Rodgers, Jim Rickards, Maloney,Morgan et al - believe that if gold revalues against these numbers - their maths equates to $10,000 Gold

Just because I find it interesting: In Munich there is a precious metal seller "proaurum". They built the building in form of a gold bar with size of 42 by 23 by 8 meters which has a volume of all the gold above ground.
