A Gold bar, also called a gold ingot or gold bullion, is a quantity of refined metallic gold of any shape that is made by a bar producer meeting standard conditions of manufacture, labeling, and record keeping. The standard gold bar held as gold reserves by central banks and traded among bullion dealers is the 400-troy-ounce (12.4 kg or 438.9 ounces) Good Delivery gold bar. $140 billion in gold bullion is stolen by Simon Gruber and his henchmen at the Federal Reserve Bank in Die Hard with a Vengeance.

Bank RobberyEdit

$140 billion in gold is kept in the bank and heavily armed by security. However following an explosion at Wall Street Station, the bank lost a majority of security (who provided aid to the people in the station) and those that remained were fooled by Simon's henchmen, including Simon himself, who disguised as businessmen making a check-in at the bank when really they were breaking in. After Simon convinced the police there was a bomb in a school, the men entered the bank and took out the lobby security. Once they entered the elevator and approached the vault, Simon and his men waited for Katya to take out the guard before they could continue any further. The drill breaker broke through the rear and Simon & co. stole the gold and loaded them onto their dump trucks so no one thought it suspicious. When John McClane and Zeus Carver discovered Simon's true intentions, Zeus spots one gold bar they left behind and he takes it claiming he will be rich (only to lose it in a car swap on the FDR East River Drive). The gold loaded dump trucks are later seen on a cargo ship but somehow the gold managed to make it out of New York City before Mathias Targo discovered the fake gold, which is nothing but scrap metal. McClane also discovers this. Targo then tells Katya (his longtime accomplice) Simon lied to him about the gold, and it is all scrap metal on board. Katya however chooses Simon over Targo, killing him with her pistol, knowing her reward awaits in Quebec. The German men celebrate in a warehouse in Quebec, with campaigne, and the gold now stored in shipments of crates. But following a raid from the RCMP and John McClane, the gold is recovered and returned to New York.
