This is a good documentary for those who are interested to see where gold is stored and where the US currency is produced. A single gold bar weights approximately 27 lbs. At today’s gold price of roughly $1,300/oz, the gold bar has a value of about $561,600.
In this fascinating documentary, National Geographic Channel takes you inside the heart of the money machine to places that you’re not allowed to bring a camera (unless you’re a blind-folded Bob Pisani)… straight into some of the world’s largest vaults. America’s Money Vault follows 55 million dollars worth of gold as it makes its way down into the most valuable gold vault in the world. Hidden deep under the streets of New York City, hundreds of billion dollars in gold bars – the wealth of nations – are tucked away in a bunker that is anchored to the bedrock of Manhattan Island itself.
