Yearly Gold Production in metric tonnes (1900-2012)
Data From: USGS Historical Statistics
yearly
Cumulative Gold Production in metric tonnes (1835-2012)
total

50% of all gold ever produced was produced since 1967
80% of all gold ever produced was produced since 1910

per capita

Gold production growth exceeded population growth from the 1840s to 1940s
It declined after WWII for almost 50 years, but started up again in 1989.
Maybe the long term equilibrium point is about 3/4 ounce per person ?
