This chart was updated in March 2015 and reports data available at that time. Data are taken from the International Monetary Fund's International Financial Statistics (IFS), March 2015 edition, and other sources where applicable. IFS data are two months in arrears, so holdings are as of December 2014 for most countries, November 2014 or earlier for late reporters. Where the World Gold Council knows of movements that are not reported to the IMF or misprints, changes have been made.

The percentage share held in gold of total foreign reserves is calculated by the World Gold Council. The value of gold holdings is calculated using the end of quarter London PM fix gold price, which is published daily by The London Gold Market Fixing Ltd. Data for the value of other reserves are taken from IFS, table ‘Total Reserves minus Gold’.
