Fort Knox is perhaps one of the most famous secure buildings in the world. It goes beyond the usual commercial door security required by average businesses. It is located in Kentucky adjacent to the Fort Knox military base and has a fortress-like appearance. The facility holds large portions of the United States gold reserves and is heavily guarded at all times by the United States Mint Police.
Surrounded by a series of fences and constructed with granite walls, the vault is protected by a 20-ton blast proof security door that requires passcodes unique to each member of their staff. The depository was built by the Treasury in 1936 on land transferred to it from Fort Knox. Early shipments of gold totaling almost 13,000 metric tons were escorted by combat cars of the 1st U.S. Cavalry Regiment to the depository. In the past it has safeguarded other precious items, such as the Constitution of the United States and the United States Declaration of Independence.
