"The Top 10 largest owners of gold in the world are reported to control a total of 24,258.3 tons. . ."

The biggest owners of the world's gold reserves are governments, central banks, and investment.

These organizations understand that gold is the ultimate store of value that protects against inflation and offers a safe haven during times of economic and geopolitical turmoil.

When I went to find out who owns the most gold in the world, I referred to data from the International Monetary Fund's International Financial Statistics Report.

Here are the results of that search:
  1. United States (8,133.5 tons)

  2. Germany (3,412.6 tons)

  3. International Monetary Fund (3,217.3 tons)

  4. Italy (2,451.8 tons)

  5. France (2,450.7 tons)

  6. SPDR Gold Shares ETF (1,120.6 tons)

  7. China (1054.0 tons)

  8. Switzerland (1040.1 tons)

  9. Japan (765.2 tons)

  10. Netherlands (612.5 tons)
The Top 10 largest owners of gold in the world are reported to control a total of 24,258.3 tons, or over 855 million ounces. At current spot prices, this gold would be worth approximately US$804.35B and represents about 15.4% of all the gold ever mined.
