Yes, reddit led me to it.
Vault is currently(?) estimated at $315billion in gold. Each bar is about 28 pounds in weight, and each shelf is a ton of gold.
We're INSIDE a Gold Bullion Vault.
The Bank of England protects about £197 billion ($315bn) worth of gold, according to the mostly recently published figures.

Smart that they keep it all within the country. I feel bad for the poor shlubs who gave the fed their gold...it's never going home.

now this is where they should film bering sea gold next year
Meh, the US has that covered easily:
The United States Bullion Depository holds 4,578 metric tons (5,046.3 short tons) of gold bullion (147.2 million oz. troy). This is roughly 3% of all the gold ever refined throughout human history. Even so, the depository is second in the United States to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York's underground vault in Manhattan, which holds 7,000 metric tons (7,716 tons) of gold bullion (225.1 million oz. troy), some of it in trust for foreign nations, central banks and official international organizations.

FWIW, my wife used to work at the Fed (She's not Vietnamese, but she managed the Yen portfolio, so that's close enough) and has been down to that vault. She left in 2000, but on 9/11 the staff went down to the vault.

Don't think -- it can only hurt the ballclub
And walked out with all the gold
Someone downvoted this.
"The RCMB on 247 is one of the most awful, alarming, inappropriate, disgusting, and offensive msg boards in the history of the internet."
Of course, its a ridiculous conspiracy theory.
It might have more gold, but it's not nearly as refined. Probably has a McDonalds in it.
While the gold was fascinating, the dude's hair even crazier.
I laughed as well.
Glad I'm not the only one who's been picking up on this trend.
to be fair, the government isn't exactly helping their cause by no doing a full transparent inventory of it.
