### What is 900 pounds of gold worth?

Get the current USD/Ounce of gold:
on 05/29/2010 it is about $1200 an ounce. (this number changes
by quite a bit over the years)
Find out how many ounces are in a pound: 1 pound = 16
ounces.
So (900 pounds) * (16 ounces) * (1200 USD) = 17,280,000, about
17 million US dollars.

states with more paper money, this figure may double or triple in
the next 20 years.
