From the film:

James Bond: Yes, well, I've worked out a few statistics of my own. 15 billion dollars in gold bullion weighs 10,500 tons. Sixty men would take twelve days to load it onto 200 trucks. Now, at the most, you're going to have two hours before the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines move in and make you put it back.

Auric Goldfinger: Who mentioned anything about removing it?
As far as I know, Flemming never actually said in the book, how GF planned to shift it.

At today's prices, I think $15 billion of gold would weigh in at around 4,000 tons (US)
