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.

Switzerland became the gold-richest nation in 1980(most of it stolen). It's easy to tell which nations have gold, and which one less. The United States of America holds very little, if any, and that is used to pay on the government's debt.

Monty Daniels (2 months ago)
@Sami Iqbal. Sami, I believe that the US Military are in a lot of countries as it stands today but one thing I've noticed is the following; Since 1955, the US Military has ended up in countries that have natural resources that we lack here in the states. After Vietnam we ended up working out a deal to buy rubber & Titanium from their government. Then somehow there was involvement in the ''Golden Triangle'' for almost 20 years, then there's been involvement in Afghanistan, where most of the heroin comes from. I know the poppy is where heroin & morphine comes from. So while most people think the US pilfers everyone's oil, I think they probably want all the poppy crops. There's been troops guarding all the poppy fields there since 2003, or whenever we went there. So that's like what, the 15th year? There's no opiate shortage, there can't be. The US is controlling both black & white ops.

Over the years I have traded with most major coin and bullion dealers in the US & Kitco in Canada. Even traded with Tulving Metals, (dodged a bullet on that one). In all around service none, & I do mean, can compare with Dana (Gold Dealer) . I have been trading with Dana Franco for years and she never disappointed me, I got my gold delivered to my doorstep, I will like to recommend her to anyone who need gold or any metals from a trusted dealer,she is both knowable & friendly. I am a big fan of the Lunar gold & silver collection.(series 1&2) but find it easy to purchase from Dana , you can contact her here , please tell her I recommend you ......Dnbullion@gmail . Com....None can compare as far as pricing & overall availability. SHE IS SIMPLY THE BEST.

think gold holdings in the USA are fake amounts, Fort Knox not inspected in over 20 years and only one vault was opened?
Delgen1951 (2 months ago)
Relly? Fort knox was inspected in the 1970s and early two thousands and still has all the gold it ever did. in fact in the 1980s the US stopped gold speculators by auctioning of 1 million OZ of gold, the very news of that stopped the rise of Gold prices for years, The US then allowed the price of Gold to freely rise in the late 90s until today. If Fort Knox where to sell off all the gold it holds the price of Gold today would be about $30.00 per ounce.
