- The most common trading size of gold bars is the LGDB London Good Delivery Bars, the standard slender brick used by banks. These gold bars appear a little larger than the standard LGBD size. The standard size is 400 troy ounces, or 27.4 pounds a bar. A full sized gold brick (the same as a construction brick in dimensions) weighs 62.25 pounds, however no institution trades their gold in that fashion. They all use the 'smaller' and easier to lift bricks. Like all films dealing with gold, it is physically impossible for these persons to handle these 30+ pound pieces of metal so easily and their vehicles (underwater sled, truck, Mini Coopers) could not possibly hold the heavy tonnage of that much gold. Call it a "suspension of disbelief".....
Our robbers move tons of gold via motorized underwater sleds. This many bars would weigh more than a large truck.
A hand was left in the shot for scale, but they seem a little larger than the LGBD. Of course they are plated prop bars, but in reality, if the bars were 15% larger than an LGBD, then each bar is over 30 pounds each. To put it in perspective, each small bar weighs more than a full sized M60 machine gun
