U.S. Treasury-Owned Gold

Introduction

01/31/2012 — 05/31/2024Released MonthlyLast Updated 06/06/2024
The U.S. Treasury-Owned Gold dataset provides the amount of gold that is available across various U.S. Treasury-maintained locations. The data shows whether the gold is held in deep storage or working stock, that is, available to the U.S. Mint as raw material for the creation of congressionally authorized coins. The dataset includes the weight of gold in troy ounces (a measurement unit still used today for precious metals and gunpowder) and the book value in dollars. The book value is not the market value, but instead represents the total number of troy ounces multiplied by a value established by law ($42.222), set in 1973.
