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.

Vatican borrowed 640000 metric ton of gold from the tallano tagean pilipino family to support hitler germany after ww1. They return the gold to the philippines and it was in central bank of the philippines. These gold is a private reserve. Marcos gold was part of return vatican gold, but the volume of marcos gold was the famost yamashita gold. Yamashita gold was partly discovered by marcos thru half japanese half pilipino living in baguio city. They have the maps provided by the surviving japanese father. There are more than 170 location thru out the philippines majority were burried in mindanao. Only 42 locations were found by the marcos personal army. So much gold still to be found. These yamashita gold can not put in public account due to many countries own the gold. It has to be many years until limitation expires. Marcos hide these gold by various trust account in many banks. Some of these yamashita gold was hitler gold too from europe that landed in mindanao during the last days of the nazi in ww1. Thats the reason why phil has more gold than any country in the world. Little bit of history, tallano tagean family paid the spain of 2o million u.s. dollars for the american govt during the treaty of paris in the year of 1898.

Phil has more gold than anybody in the world. Ask the world bank, imf, central banks, the pres. Of u.s.a. obama tried to print 3 trillion dollars in thailand using marcos 3500 metric tons of gold deposited in ubs bank of swiss. The tallano tagean family of maharlika empire has over 640000 metric tons of gold. Karen hudes knew the gold of the philippines. It was deposited in many countries including in u.s. and china.

So much pathetic ignorance in the comment section to this video. Do you honestly think that the amount of gold that a certain country holds has anything to do with the country´s wealth? If so - just look at India - where most of the population lives below subsistence level.

Where is Ghana? Where is South Africa? Ghana my country is not on the list although Ghana is the 9th world gold producer. You know why? Because black people are stupid plain stupid. They are just in the world but they don't know what is going on in the world. They don't know what gold is used for. The world Elites cheat everyone by saying that gold is used to back currencies. My late illiterate mother even knows the use of gold and precious stones and so they kept them. Post independent African nations make crass stupidity their swimming pool. We won't tell them because they can't handle the secret of gold. Remember, for a teaser, nobody eats gold so why do people die for it? Think of that.

Gold is worth nothing in the United States. The biggest trade goes to England. Gold no longer backs up to US dollar. So it has to be sold overseas on the market. If fort Knox is empty fort Knox own owes a lot of people a lot of money according to our social security numbers. We can hang by the neck every single government official until it's found and brought back home

With all the fake gold like the gold plated alloy ingots and bars falsely claiming to be .9999 pure that are actually less pure if not gold at all circulating it is all smoke mirrors and shell game. I once heard there is more gold claimed to be held by financials institutions and nations that if added up is more than has ever been found or mined. I guess they found a way to print more gold like they do money.

World's 11% gold owned by Indian women's, it's around 24000 tons which make them worlds biggest hoarders of gold. Indian temples own around 22000 tons of gold as per world gold council. In South India 2011 inside a secret chamber of temple, gold and jewels,diamonds worth around 22 billion founded, still the main vault not opened because of rumours. Also I forgot to mention about Indian gold which is looted by foreign invaders in hystory that maybe weights millions and millions of ton.

Myth or NO MYTH. Japanese looted gold jewelries and bullions of gold during WWII. At the urgency of the war situations, General Yamashita had the gold treasures buried in the mountains/caves in the Philippines. F. McConnell (research about him), the gold amounted to quadtrillion --- or more than trillions; it's an unimaginable value. Hey, the financial reset in America [if there would be one] would be backed by the Philippines' GOLD. True or farfetched? Wait and see.

The Dutch had 1600 tons of gold, almost 1000 tons are sold over the past 25 years. 400 tons to China in the mid-nineties, where the rest went? Maybe the Bank of Europe... When you own 1600 tons of gold you easily can say goodbye to the Euro or EU. Personal I like Silver more than gold, Better characteristics.

How to survive the worldwide starvation crisis caused by Peak Oil; "What can I do"? According to the experts you should: 1. Garden with sustainable agriculture techniques (less pesticides and fertilizer (organic or better yet permaculture)). 2. Buy food and manufactured goods made locally 3. Pay down debt 4. Learn skills they will be useful in the future and make friends that have useful skills you don't have (related to providing food, water, shelter, and medical care. A necessary skill is organic/permaculture gardening/farming). Very important: medical plant and medical skills are the best way to ensure your survival. All others will gladly sacrifice their life to protect your life, so you are around to use your medical knowledge to keep their families alive. 5. I recommend to invest some money into technologies to increase the "carrying capacity" of the planet (high risk investments); A. decrease environmental impact per capital B. alternatives for our food system input to improve production C. alternatives to our current living arrangements, D. alternatives to our plastics industry, E. alternatives to disaster capitalism F. "Savior technologies", ie faster-than-light travel, "game changer" technologies, ie Cold fusion energy & "delaying technologies", ie deep drilling technologies. 6. I also recommend you inform and prepare your family, friends, and others. It is best to initially suggest people have an emergency kit... for any emergency such as flood, earthquake, tornado, hurricane, loss of electricity due to a winter storm. Then, if the friend or relative puts together a disaster kit, what I do is introduce Peak Oil (by telling them of the 43 second movie trailer http://m.natgeotv.com/ca/2210-thecollapse/videos/collapse-of-earth , the "National Geographic Collapse" movie on YouTube, & free book downloads; 7. For the truly motivated, a community based organization to mitigate Climate Change and Peak Oil is: http://www.transitionus.org/ (For non USA; https://transitionnetwork.org/) Google "2052 free book summary download", & "Plan C".
