India According to the World Gold Council, the Bank of India currently holds 557.7 tons of gold. It is one of the largest stores of gold in the world! This makes up 9.9 % of the country’s total foreign reserve. Foreign exchange reserves is money or other assets held by a nation’s central bank so they can back the national currency. India, home to 1.25 billion people, is the number one largest consumer of the precious metal. Furthermore, India is one of the most reliable drivers of global demand. For example, India’s festival and wedding season, which runs from October to December, has historically been a major market for gold. And probably, one of the most interesting facts about India and gold is that India rarely invests much in gold. This is because as a country, India operates under the belief that buying gold leads to a deficit. And their belief must be proving right as things also seem to be improving for India. For instance, if you look at the last few years, India has increased its gold reserves from 557.74 to 557.77. While this might not seem like a lot, India is also at its highest point in history! In addition to what the country holds, Indian households which are considered the world’s largest hoarders of gold, hold a record 23,000-24,000 tons, which is worth about $800 billion. 9.) Netherlands In the past few years, the Netherlands has held 52% of its foreign reserve in gold. The Netherlands has a reported 612.45 tons. In 2016 it was reported that the bank was looking for a place to store all its gold because they were going to renovate the vaults and needed to moving it. The Dutch central bank is planning to move the country’s gold reserves from the center of Amsterdam to a new complex called the Cash Center. Like most countries, Dutch gold is also held in banks around the world to reduce risk. Security measures to guard the gold 24/7 have become a problem in Amsterdam. 189,000 kilos of gold will be moved at the beginning of 2022. Maybe this is one reason that over the last decade and a half, the Netherlands was selling off tons of gold in order to reduce its reserve. However, there weren’t that many buyers out there and they sold less than the country wanted. More recently the country has had less ambition to sell gold. Currently, the country holds the same amount of tons, 612.45 that they have over the last few years. However, the country has increased its percentage of foreign reserves to 61.2 %. 8.) Japan Japan is another country which had been increasing its gold reserves since the 1960’s. Their official gold holdings were reported at 765.2 tons. About 2.4% of Japan’s gold today is in foreign reserve. Historically, Japan has always held a bit more gold than other countries. This was true until 2011, when they began to sell some of their reserve in order to pump money into the economy after the tsunami and the following Fukushima nuclear disaster. But even with selling, Japan’s central bank has been one of the most aggressive practitioners of quantitative easing. For example, in January of 2016, it lowered interest rates below zero, which has helped fuel demand in gold around the world. 7.) Switzerland Prior to 1997, Switzerland was steadily building its gold reserves. In 1997, the decision was made to sell some of those reserves to bolster the Swiss currency and diversify the foreign reserves. The percent of foreign reserves in Switzerland is currently 6.7 %. Switzerland actually has the world’s largest reserves of gold per capita and currently has reported 1,040 tons. Over time, many citizens in the country started to feel like the bank was getting rid of too much gold. They then banded together with the “Save the Swiss” movement. However, once everyone was able to vote in 2014, the vote came to a no, and gold continued to be sold. During World War II, Switzerland became the center of the gold trade in Europe, making transactions with both the Allies and Axis powers. Today, much of its gold trading is done with Hong Kong and China. Around last year, the Swiss National Bank made a $5.9 billion profit, reportedly from its gold holdings.

in one interview, george w. bush accidentally told the truth when he was asked what country is the richest in the world. with a smile he said"PHILIPPINES" . IMF know about over a million metric tons of gold in the philippines and these golds we're actually owned by the TALLANO ROYAL FAMILY, the richest royal family in the world even the rothschild cant compare to it's wealth. 400 thousand metric tons of the gold we're kept in 3rd floor central bank of the philippines and others we're stolen by the marcoses.

The US has so many active gold mines that aren't even close to being scratched. If the country mined them all it would have a crazy amount.
The Engineer (26 days ago)
How misleading. The US exited the Gold Standard in 1971 under Nixon. If the gold was at Fort Knox KY, then an independent audit would reveal it. If Trump says its not there, its probably not there. If any country announces a return to the gold standard, it sends shivers down the Federal Reserve, as their scam paper money backed by nothing will soon be exposed. Central Bankers around the world who hold the Dollar as a reserve currency, will soon wake up and realize that they have been played and are holding worthless paper in their vaults. FIAT currency is the root to all evil in the world. It has lead to massive devaluation and loss of wealth for billions around the world. Entire economies can disappear over night. This is the work of the devil. The dollar you earn today will be worth half as much in two decades. How long can we continue with this scam? Its time to return to the gold standard.

Gold is the most useless commodity in the world. A country's real economy isn't affected by it's gold reserves, it only serves as a physiological sense of stability to attract foreign investment and used in some extent as a tool to stabilize a country's currency against the USD...None of that will matter after the next financial crisis or WW3. And yes I am indeed a ray of sunshine!

Now i understand why US Dollar is very important for the world not gold ? Why the world truly depends on US Dollar ? Because of Bretton Wood systems in 1944 declared that US Dollar will be the most important global currency . And then in 1971 then US president Richard Nixon end gold standard convertibility to US Dollar . Thats why world always depend on US Dollar .

Of course the US is at number one, it's blood gold... they dont "produce" it from a fair trade and clean slate. The US freeport's gold and other minerals mining sites in indonesia contribute to most of this gold "production" -- yet hardly get proper credit and fair trade in return... they did a dirty deal with any corrupt local govt in the past, anyone they can find to secure the mountain of gold and minerals for decades while the locals are being oppressed and natural habitat were destroyed.

Makes sense. The Nazis stole all the golds from the Jews and other countries during the 2nd World War. Cut their arms and fingers to get them, too. Or melted them in furnaces. The Japanese did the same thing. So right after they surrendered they became rich overnight.
