“In 2022, Mozambique held approximately 126,500 ounces, worth 230.3 million dollars. However, by the end of 2023, that same amount of gold, which is part of the central bank’s foreign exchange reserves, was worth 261.1 million dollars,” the entity explained in a report released on Wednesday, 3 April.

According to the document, foreign exchange reserves are made up of gold bullion, fine silver and platinum, special drawing rights, foreign currency and other assets denominated in foreign currency with guaranteed convertibility.
