With gold selling in 2012 at $1700 an ounce or more, a trillion dollars worth would be equal to or less than 29,781 short tons (US).

A short ton is 2000 pounds (avoirdupois). A troy pound of gold is 12 troy ounces, and is equal to about 0.823 pounds. At $1700 an ounce (troy), gold would be $20,400 a troy pound, or $16,789 a pound (avoirdupois). A ton would therefore be $33,578,000.
