It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver.

Beneath the Bank of England in London lies 

4,600 tons of gold.
The Bank's precious metal reserves, worth £197 billion ($315bn) according to the mostly recently published figures, are rarely seen by outsiders, but University of Nottingham chemistry Professor Martyn Poliakoff, obtained special permission to visit the high security vault.
Accompanied by video journalist Brady Haran, he reveals the incredible sight of row upon row of shiny gold bars displayed like 
"chocolates in the duty free shop at the airport".
Standing between piles of 28lb 24-carat gold bullion, Prof Poliakoff confesses however to being somewhat disappointed by the scene.
"Gold is an exciting element, it has interesting chemistry and it's just sitting here doing nothing" he muses. "It's enormously impressive but it's a bit sad, rather like a mausoleum where the dead gold is sitting waiting for people to remember it."

"It should be doing exciting reactions," he adds.
Each shelf weighs one ton and is worth £35m at today's prices. If all the gold in the world was gathered together it would only occupy the space of a large house.
