You probably thought West Point is where the US Army makes teenagers into military officers. They definitely do that there. But there’s a less-publicized function happening at West Point the town, and it concerns gold. As in, storing gold and minting collector coins.
Yes indeed, West Point the town is home to the West Point Mint and the second largest store of gold in the US; 22% of the US gold reserve is held at West Point Mint. Under somewhat elaborate security, not to mention being next to, well, West Point.
