Next up we have the infamous Fort Knox. While many of you have probably heard this name before, you may not know all there is to it. You see, Fort Knox, located in Kentucky, is the USA’s famous long lasting Military base. It was around all the way back in the First World War and played a large role in the harboring and training of troops. Since its creation, over one million troops have graduated here, further showing how important it has been. In addition to being a military base, it is also the largest depository for “precious metals” a.k.a GOLD!
Now how much gold are we talking about? Just about 147 Million Ounces of gold, or around $10 Billion dollars of gold. It makes a lot of sense for such an important stash to be guarded at a military base of all places. You definitely wouldn’t want to push your luck here, that’s for sure.
