World's Largest Gold Bar



The Mitsubishi Materials Corporation of Japan poured the world's largest gold bar. The bar is 17.9 inches by 8.9 inches and 6.7 inches high. Although it takes up the same amount of space as a large shoe box, you would not be able to lift it as it weighs 551.15 pounds. At the time it was poured it was worth $3.7 million.

$10,000 Dollar Bill



Yes it is real. The Federal Reserve used it to transfer money to and from banks and was never issued to the public. They also produced a $500, $1,000, $5,000 and even a $100,000 dollar note. They were last printed in 1945 and have since been discontinued.

A Wall of Gold



This gold is part of the New York Federal Reserve Bank. The vault sits on the bedrock of New York 80 feet below the street surface and 50 feet below the sea level. You won't be digging to get to this one. At the time of the photo, the vault had $86 billion in gold, 269 Troy tons.

Walls of Money



Over $500,000 has been added to the walls and ceilings of this Irish pub. Would hate to see a fire take out this pub! It started with the first waitress who stapled her first tip to the wall. It has grown since then.

Tom,

There are two of these pubs. The original is McGuire's Irish Pub in Pensacola, FL. There is now closer to $750,000 in bills stapled on the ceiling, including one of mine. The one in Destin is also a McGuire's it is just not the original. Great food to top it all off.

That's it, McGuire's. Food was good but a popular place as it was crowded.

The word is that the US gave all our gold to the Federal Reserve as collateral for the huge debt we owe them. If that is the case, our money is absolutely worthless. Gold and other precious metals were universally acceptable methods of payment around the world, and really are the only thing of value, other than property.

Common US citizens are going to trip out when they figure out the Federal Reserve is not the US Government and only a private corporation owned by bankers.

I've known this for quite some time, but the average person has no idea. It's not just US banks either, they are banks from all over the world.

Talk about a conflict of interest!

I was watching the History channel the other day...a special about Andrew Jackson and how he was able to get rid of the central bank. Many Native Indians won't use a $20 bill with his face on it because the Trail of Tears and how he deceived them.

1 US Dollar = Z$37 410 030. 00, you are better off with your US $ at a restaurant, you pay before you eat as the price increases before you finish your meal.

The money isn't worth the paper it is printed on, most serious transactions are made in foriegn currency, the long standing joke is that it is better value to use your notes as toilet paper, as you get more 'paper' than the same number of notes can buy in toilet rolls :shock:
