Poland brings home 100 tons of gold from Bank of England
Poland, which has been rapidly boosting its bullion reserves over the past two years, has repatriated around 100 tons of gold from the Bank of England’s vaults in London.

Around half of Warsaw’s holdings in the UK were transferred back to the National Bank of Poland (NBP), the central bank’s governor, Adam Glapinski, announced on Monday.

“The gold symbolizes the strength of the country,” Glapinski told reporters. Some photos and videos emerged online showing the official holding a gold ingot in front of a bank vault.

While half of Poland’s reserves are still stored in England, the country’s central bank said that it may continue to repatriate the precious metal if the “reserve situation is favorable.”

Poland could generate “multi-billion” profits from selling its bullion holdings, but currently no plans to do so, Glapinski said.

Poland has become the 22nd biggest bullion holder in the world; it purchased about 125 tons in 2018 and 2019, increasing its gold reserves to 228.6 tons. The bullion stockpile is now worth around $10.8 billion, according to the NBP.

Central banks around the world have been on a gold-buying spree, pushing total bullion demand to a three-year high in the first half of 2019, according to the World Gold Council. While Russia, China, and Turkey are the top bullion purchasers, Poland, Hungary, and Serbia are also adding to their stockpiles as they seek to diversify their reserves amid global economic uncertainty.

Bullish on bullion: Serbia joins global gold-buying spree, adding more of the precious metal to its coffers
The Central Bank of Serbia has announced it purchased nine tons of gold in October, following the lead of regulators across the world, including Russia and China. Serbia's gold holdings now make up ten percent of total reserves.

“We have completed gold purchase transactions and Serbia is safer today, with 30.4 tons of gold worth around €1.3 billion ($1.4 billion),” the Central Bank Governor Jorgovanka Tabakovic told reporters. “For now, we have no plans to buy more.”

According to Tabakovic, the acquisition is the latest in a series of moves by the country to shore up its financial stability by changing the structure of its foreign debt and increasing the share of dinars and euros. The central bank paid €395 million ($434.3 million) for the gold, or $1,503-an-ounce, she said.

The bank has recently upgraded its 2019 economic growth forecast to 3.6 percent from 3.5 percent. It cited higher domestic demand, which is counterbalancing a slowdown in most of the European Union.

Heightened global tensions, currency wars and the course of de-dollarization have been pushing global central banks to boost their gold purchases. Global purchases of the precious metal totaled 547.5 tons in the third quarter of 2019 and the booming trend is likely to continue in the coming years. Russia, China and Turkey saw the largest increases, according to World Gold Council (WGC) data.

People should ditch dollar, fiat currencies in general & buy gold which is ‘a real safe haven’ – Peter Schiff tells Boom Bust
The real driver behind the rise of gold prices is the world’s central banks’ buying spree, says Peter Schiff of Euro Pacific Capital.

The veteran broker tells RT's Boom Bust, false optimism based on expectations of a US-China trade deal which is “not going to happen” was also driving the price.

He explains that last week’s sharp rise of interest rates was due to growing inflation pressures in the economy and because there’s not enough demand for all of the bonds being sold.

“All of this is very bullish for gold and so rather than simply selling bonds people should be buying gold because they need to get out of the dollar,” says Schiff. “In fact they need to get out of the fiat currencies in general and seek a real safe haven – and that’s gold,” he adds.

Russia, China & Turkey push global gold purchases to new highs
Global bullion holdings continued to rise in the third quarter of this year, with net purchases up 12 percent compared to last year, according to World Gold Council (WGC) data.

Central bank purchases of the precious metal totaled 547.5 tons, with more than 156 tons bought in three months from July to September. However, the third quarter buying spree this year is 38% lower than it was in 2018, when quarterly net purchases hit the highest level in eight years.

Gold reserves of Russia, China, and Turkey saw the largest increase in the reported period, according to the WGC. Turkish holdings rose most of all, by 71.4 tons to over 380 tons. Earlier, the Central Bank of the Republic of Turkey made its largest ever monthly bullion purchase, adding 41.8 tons of gold to its coffers in August.

Russia, the leading bullion purchaser last year, continued to expand its gold stockpile while it further diversified its reserves from the US dollar. After the gold holdings increased by 94 tons in the first half of 2019, the Central Bank of Russia added nearly 35 tons from July to September. Now the gold stash amounts to nearly 2,242 tons and is worth more than $100 billion.

Meanwhile China, which resumed bullion purchases at the end of last year, added 21.8 tons to its holdings. In September, the People’s Bank of China raised national gold holdings to around 1,957 tons, bringing this year’s gold haul to over 100 tons amid a simmering trade war with the US.

Russia & China stockpiling gold because ‘they can read the writing on the wall’ – Peter Schiff
Global central banks, particularly those in Russia and China, have been boosting their gold reserves at a rapid place lately. The trend is projected to continue due to trade tensions and market uncertainty.

Russia, which was the world’s most committed purchaser of gold in 2018, has bought 106 tons of the precious metal this year. The country’s gold bullion holdings have reached $109.5 billion as of September. Russia is on course to become the world’s fourth largest reserve holder, largely thanks to the steady interest in buying gold.

The People’s Bank of China has added about 100 tons of gold to its reserves since December. Its bullion reserves rose to 62.45 million troy ounces (2,141 tons) as of the end of last month – nearly five percent more since the end of last year. The value of China’s gold holdings increased to $95.45 billion at the end of August.

“They can read the writing on the wall,” Euro Pacific Capital CEO Peter Schiff told FOX Business, while talking about Russia and China’s gold purchases. He added that the two countries are “preparing for the world where the dollar is no longer the reserve currency.”
