One of my investments is in gold. You may think gold is a great investment or a terrible one, but that’s not what I’m talking about today.
Rather, I just learned something very interesting. Here’s a few facts you probably didn’t know about gold:
1. It would take just three and a half Olympic-sized swimming pools to hold all the gold ever mined out of the earth, EVER, in all of human history. That’s it. That’s all the gold held by human beings on the entire planet. Amazing isn’t it?
2. 85% of all gold mined out of the earth was mined in the 20th century. That means all the gold you read about in history books, like King Solomon, Harun al-Rashid, and the Knights Templar…all of that was just 15% of the gold in existence right now. Crazy, isn’t it?
I look at my gold investments a little differently now.
