Is the Gold Still in Fort Knox?


And if not, does it matter to you? Does someone count it and randomly authenticate the bullion on a regular basis or some other sort of audit?

Does it occasionally get spent or added to?

When was the last time that someone actually walked into the depository with a camera and opened the vaults to show the gold to the public?

The last time that I can find any sort of audit of the gold was 40 years ago? I find that strange.

I thought the gold was in a bank in the middle of Beverly Hills, in somebody else's name?

(Oh, wait - that might just be all the gold in California. Sorry.)

Most probably sold when Nixon took the US off the gold standard.

I agree. Quite a random task.

I can't seem to put my gold finger on what happened.

I'm sure it isn't in Fort Knox anymore because it would be stupid to let everyone know where it is.

It's probably in Area 51 or some other super secure location.

It's adorable that you think there's still gold.
