The “fortress” contains huge underground gold trillions
No fɑoo waɩɩ stɾeet in New York City (USA) is the Worɩd’s largest gold depository located underground at a depth of nearly 25 reserves of 6,000 tons, with ɑl ʋalᴜe of hundreds of Billιons of Dollɑrs.
This place is described by the world media as a “fortress”, located at 33 Liberty StreetT in the financial district, it is one of the 12 federal reserve banks of the United States.
The entrance to the golden vault with a door that weighs 900 tons.
The gold vault is located in the basement of the main office building in Manhattan. It was established during the construction of the building in the early 1920s.
Most of the gold in the vaults came during and after World War II, as many countries wanted to keep their gold reserves in a safe place. Share owners continued to rise and plummeted in 1973.
The world’s largest gold deposit of 6,000 tons, located underground, is open to receive guests
At its peak, the warehouse contained over 12,000 tons of gold. But since then, gold deposits and withdrawals have slowed, with a gradual but steady decline in overall holdings. To this day, it remains the world’s largest gold depository.
According to 2019 data, the 3-story gold depository contains 497,000 gold bars with a total weight of about 6,190 tons. This bᴜnкeɾ can bear such a heavy weight because it is located on the stone floor of MɑnҺɑttan, 24.2 m below the road and 15 m above sea level.
The interesting point is that this gold is not wholly owned by the US government. It is also owned by 36 foreign governments, other national central banks, and official international organizations. No private individual or entity may store gold in the vaᴜlt.
The largest amount of gold stored in the world is in an underground base (work of art).
There is only one way to enter the basement. It was a 90-ton steel gate that rotated in a cylindrical motion to open the entrance. Any compartment within the gold vault is opened, there are always at least 3 Fed (US Federal Reserve) employees to ensure the gold is safe.
Gold coins are transported in an elevator from the building to the location of the warehouse segment. Inside There are 122 gold compaɾts, each of which belongs to an account. Before storage, each gold bar is weighed and tested for fineness (purity) to keep records. This step is important because the Fed will return the exact gold coins that the account holder previously deposited when he wants to withdraw.
The Fed staff will then use the old scale to determine the price. Each bar will be stored in individually numbered padlocks and protected by three padlocks. These lockers are numbered rather than named to maintain account holder confidentiality. Although accounts are free to store gold here, there is a fee for Fed staff to move each gold bar.
