The Australian word for gold is koala. * SEE PUN ALERT BELOW

The Russian bullion coin is called the Chervonets.  

The South African bullion coin is called the Kruger.           

The world has issued more than 20,000 different types of gold coins over the past 2,600 years.

The Chinese word for gold is Kama. 

The world's largest hoard of gold is in the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.

Who holds most gold? 

        The U.S. Treasury, 263 million ounces:

  • 147 million ounces at Fort Knox
  • 59 million ounces at Denver Mint
  • 57 million ounces at West Point Bullion Depository
Fort Knox gold

Switzerland is the largest market place for gold. 

Jan. 2, 1975, was the first date that Americans could legally buy gold.

Carat comes from the Italian "carato", the Arabic "qirat", and the Greek "keration", all meaning the fruit of the carob tree. The horn like pods of this tree contain seeds, which were once used to balance the scales in oriental bazaars.  (Bizarre and disoriented?)

Pun Alert
A bear walks into a bar in Billings, Montana and sits down.
He bangs on the bar with his paw and demands a beer.
The bartender approaches and says, " We don't serve beer to bears in bars in Billings."
The bear, becoming angry, demands again that he be served a beer.
The bartender again tells him, "We don't serve beer to bears in bars in Billings."
The bear, very angry now, says. "if you don't serve me a beer, I'm going to eat that lady sitting at the end of the bar."
The bartender, once again says "Sorry, we don't serve beer to bears in bars in Billings."
The bear goes to the end of the bar, and as promised eats the woman.
He comes back to his seat and again demands a beer.
The bartender says, "Sorry, we don't serve beer to bears in bars in Billings that are on drugs."
The bear says, "I'm not on drugs."
The bartender says "Yes you are ... that was a barbitchyouate."
