In one of Richard Feynman's memoirs he reveals that at Los Alamos, where they were developing the atomic bomb during WW2, they used a block of gold as the doorstop for the room where the plutonium was kept. They'd had the gold to test for something and afterwards it just seemed fitting to use it to prop open the door of the room with the most expensive stuff in the world in it.
