$272,604,701,222

The **Value of One Hundred Thousand Talents of Gold **today is $272,604,701,222 (U.S. dollars).

One hundred talents of gold weighs approximately:

- 3,400,000.0 kilograms
- 3,400.0 metric tons
- 7,495,717 pounds
- 3747.86 US tons

This is based on the historical assertion that the Biblical weight of a talent is equal to approximately 34 kilograms or about 75 pounds.

To compute the current value of gold, one uses the following equation:

Gold Value = weight • %pure • Gold SPOT PRICE

where:

- Gold Value = The current value of gold content
- weight = The weight of gold item
- %pure = Percent of purity of the gold (e.g. 24k gold is 100% pure)
- Gold SPOT PRICE = The current market value of pure gold bullion.

Therefore, the Value of One Hundred Thousand Talents = 100,000 • 34 kilograms • 100% • Gold SPOT PRICE TODAY

Jesus told a parable of three servants that were given talents, presumably of gold. The weight of a talent is 34 kg. Using the current spot price of gold, which is $2493.81, you can see the value of talents today. The prices are updated every two minutes and given in U.S. dollars.
