There are just over 31 grams in a troy ounce of gold

The boiling point of gold is 2808 degrees centigrade.

If all of the existing gold in the world was pulled into a 5 micron thick wire, it could wrap around the world 11.2 million times.

All Work Should Be Play

It is rarer to find a one ounce nugget of gold than a five carat diamond.

 Around 187,200 tonnes of gold has been mined since the beginning of civilisation.

All of the gold ever mined would fit into a crate of 22 metres cubed.
