In the state of Illinois, personal property exemption on bankruptcy filing is of $4,000. I've two 1oz. gold bars. Could I lose them in bankruptcy filing? Again, just want to know how a bankruptcy trustee would know if I did not list them as assets?

I must tell you first that committing bankruptcy fraud is a serious federal offense and you could be prosecuted for that. I just checked the current price of gold and it's $1647.99 / oz. (spot price). Now, two ounces would value $3295.98, which is within the exemption amount. Therefore, you won't lose it in the bankruptcy filing.
