The terms of the Cypriot bail-in were as simple as they were startling. Cyprus will levy a “one-time” Tax on Bank Deposits to raise an additional $7.5 billion. This tax will take 6.75 percent from insured deposits of €100,000 ($129,000) or less, and 9.9 percent from uninsured amounts above €100,000.

Heist + Co. opened in December 2019.

The restaurant sits inside a renovated bank, which alludes to the restaurant's bank theme throughout.

The owners of Heist + Co. have tried to keep the elements of the old First National Bank alive. The door leading out to the courtyard that the restaurant shares with Coffee Peddlar, is the original bank building door that used to sit on the front of the building.

Inside Heist + Co., you will find images of real bank robbers hanging on the walls, such as Bonnie and Clyde. First National Bank was actually robbed by a prominent person in Harrison many years ago, according to owner Gerilyn Jobe.

Some menu items feature a play on words to fit the theme. The lights are meant to look like pneumatic tubes that are used at banks.

Another unique feature of Heist + Co. is that you can have a meal with your friends inside a bank vault. The bank vault is still fully functional but is kept hinged open for business.

If a patron books the bank vault, all their food is served out on a table near the entrance of the vault and there are four recliners that sit inside the vault to lounge and enjoy food and drinks with friends or family.

When booking a reservation, all you have to do is specify that you'd like to sit inside the bank vault instead of out at a table, if the vault is still available for the night.

The restaurant runs a promotion where a $5K investment will provide you will with access to one of the deposit boxes inside the vault. It comes with benefits including a $250 gift card, merchandise, private menu tastings and so much more for one year.

Heist + Co. has a specially curated cocktail menu that also features non-alcoholic drinks. Small plates such as soups, salads and taco and steak flights with different toppings are also available.

Heist + Co. recently released its summer menu that has a summer berry salad, katsu shrimp, sweet potato gnocchi and more.

The restaurant is a 21 and older establishment. Heist + Co. is located at 108 Harrison Ave. in Harrison, Ohio.

Our gold vaults hold around 400,000 bars of gold, worth over £200 billion.

How much gold is kept in the Bank of England?

Our gold vaults hold around 400,000 bars of gold, worth over £200 billion. That makes the Bank of England the second largest keeper of gold in the world (the New York Federal Reserve tops the list).

As this video explains, the vaults provide safe-keeping for the country’s gold reserves and for overseas central banks:

The Bank of England and gold

Vault
  • Below the Bank of England is one of the largest store of gold anywhere in the world. We look after more than 400,000 gold bars, worth billions of pounds.
    The gold is kept in nine underground vaults and we guard it very carefully. Our customers are the UK Government, banks and other governments around the world.

    Each gold bar costs hundreds of thousands of pounds. Their value can go up and down.

    Our customers can trade their gold bars with other customers at the Bank. When a customer trades gold it usually doesn’t move, instead the name of the owner will change on our system.

    Not many people are allowed to visit our vaults, however, the Queen and Prince Charles have had a look around.

    Even though we look after lots of gold, we only own two bars. You can see them in our museum and if you’re feeling strong you can try to lift one.
    Some interesting facts, did you know that an ounce of gold can be stretched a distance of over 50 miles? All of the gold mined so far in the world, would fill more than three Olympic sized swimming pools.

Can I get gold from the Bank of England today?

In the past you could exchange banknotes for the equivalent value in gold at the Bank of England, but this has not been possible since the early 1930s.

You can, however, hold a real gold bar in the Bank of England Museum.

Has any gold ever been stolen from the Bank of England?

No gold has ever been stolen from our vaults. However, there is a story that suggests that we had a lucky escape in Victorian times…

In 1836, the Directors of the Bank of England received anonymous letters. The writer claimed to have access to their gold, and offered to meet them in the gold vault at an hour of their choosing.

The Directors were finally persuaded to gather one night in the vault. At the agreed hour a noise was heard from beneath the floor and a man popped up through some of the floor boards.

The man was a sewerman who, during repair work, had discovered an old drain that ran immediately under the gold vault.

After the initial shock, a stock take revealed that he hadn’t taken any gold. For his honesty, the Bank of England rewarded him with a gift of £800. This would be worth about £90,000 in today’s money (see our inflation calculator).
