Estimates for all the gold ever mined in the world are around 165,000 metric tons. A metric ton is 32,150 troy ounces, meaning there are only 5.3 billion ounces out there -- or less than one for every person on the planet! Do you have your ounce?Get thee to a coin shop, my friend.
Now assuming that most inhabitants of third-world nations don't have a lot of gold, how much gold is there per developed-world inhabitant? The OECD countries have a population of about 1.2 billion, meaning there are about 4.4 ounces per developed-world citizen. Do you have your share?
With gold still far below its 2011 highs but looking technically very strong, the U.S. still running deficits of 8% of GDP, and Australia looking to join the global printfest, this would be a good time to revisit Gold: do you have your share?
