GOLD being our business here at BullionVault, we think our knowledge of the precious metal is pretty extensive. But researching our latest infographic proved there's always more to learn about this rare, indestructible store of wealth. The bullion investment market is only one small aspect of gold's fascinating character and history.
 
This new gold infographic uncovers an array of incredible facts, including how gold is created (look for dying stars), how much gold the human body contains (and how much is in domestic sewage), plus details of the earliest known gold relics, and some amazing industrial uses too. Although many of us come into contact with gold on a daily basis (way more people now carry gold in their pocket than ever did during the Gold Standard, thanks to the gold bonding wire in your smartphone), few people know even a fraction of the gold facts listed here. Take a look at this infographic to see how well you really know gold.
