Brazil’s international gold and foreign exchange reserves totaled $355.7 billion as of the end of July, with the share of gold increasing to 2.1%. At the end of 2020, the share of the precious metal in Brazil’s foreign reserves totaled 1.2%, standing at $4.101 billion.

In the first six month of the current year, the country became the world’s third-biggest buyer of gold after Thailand and Hungary. Brazil’s central bank purchased 53.74 tons, according to data tracked by the World Gold Council (WGC). 

“Central banks are likely to continue buying gold on a net basis in 2021 at a similar or higher rate than in 2020, driven by a continued focus on diversification and risk management,” the WGC projected, noting that central banks globally bought 333 tons of gold in the first six months of the current year.
