The Federal Bank of Germany at an accelerated pace returns domestic gold reserves from foreign repositories, transfers RIA News the message of the head of the Bundesbank, Jens Weidman.


Media: Germany hastily returns its gold from abroad


Weidman noted that the return of gold is carried out within the framework of the precious metal storage concept: “before 2020 r, half of the entire gold reserves must be transported to Frankfurt” of the republic.

“Since the new storage concept was adopted, 366 tons of gold worth approximately 11,5 billion euros have been delivered to Frankfurt. Thus, about 1400 tons or 41,5% of our gold reserves are now stored here. We are on schedule, ”he said.

According to Weidman, "the rest will be stored in New York and London." "The contract for the storage of German gold in the French Central Bank in Paris terminated," - he added.

"The gold reserve, in fact, is for Germany an additional foreign exchange reserve," said the head of the federal bank.

Currently, the gold reserve of Germany is estimated at 3400 tons. It is 2 in the world after the United States.

The gold reserve not only provides guarantees for German industry, but also provides the country with a leading role in the European community.

                Germany from the United States will not return its gold - and it must be assumed never, even if it is in the US Federal Reserve safe deposit boxes and remains.
                Firstly, the US has no reason to return it!
                Well, who is Germany for the USA ?! Germany for the United States is, after the Second World War, a European country occupied by the United States - i.e. American colony in Europe. And where did you see that some colony there would dictate its metropolitan conditions ?! Yes, nowhere! For the geopolitical appearance of German sovereignty from the United States, the Germans will at best receive a “drop” from their gold — shut up on that! As it was with A. Merkel.
                And secondly, there is reason to believe that the integrity of Germany’s gold reserves in the United States remained with the Americans only on paper, as evidenced by the American side demonstratively unprofessionally performed an audit of foreign gold in American banks. At the same time, both the foreign owners of their gold themselves were not admitted to the audit, and any numbers of the gold bars themselves were not mentioned in the audit report documents at all - the same Germany as well. Which indicates the absence of their safety, as such.

              something in the region of 1470 tons,

              And 1400 tons from Germany says that Russia’s reserves just overtook one of the pillars of Kapmir and the European Union. Although the rest of the German 2000 tons are stored by the Anglo-Saxons, they are actually not there. If theoretically, then Germany is in the euro zone, France is in the euro zone and it's just moving precious metals from one store to another, but in fact the Germans are preparing for a new world where there will only be national currencies, because course, and indeed the possibility of acquiring the resources necessary for the state will depend on the availability of metal. What Canada will do is not clear, by the way, by the way, one of the members of the big capsemer, i.e. a member of the golden billion, a member of the British Commonwealth, one of the key countries of the New World Order, etc., etc., announced the depletion of the gold reserve to zero. And if the dollar honors the Bose, and having gold, but only black, it surely honors the remaining black gold under the control of the Russian Federation, Iran and Venezuela. From here Iran is already a friend, to be Kurdistan. I am afraid only for Maduro, he is against weaklings against Chavez, I might not survive the color revolution or direct intervention ... In addition to taking control of Venezuela, they have no option to keep the dollar as a supranational currency, and therefore the world order. But in a military way, with their AUGs (which, by the way, went a little gold, both American and Canadian, and German and Japanese in fact), the Russian Federation has already demonstrated this in the Caucasus, Crimea and Syria.

                  For thousands of years, or rather, since the well-known times of civilization, gold has been a universal means of payment in domestic and interstate trade, as well as a means of accumulating capital. Only in the second half of the 20th century, oil became the universal means of payment and the main commodity of world trade, the equivalent of which was the dollar. Many believe that the dollar is imposed on the US world, but this is not so. Former British colonies, which formed the basis of the new world order, for some reason did not have the pound, as the currency of Britain itself, namely, the colonial currency hailed from the European universal trading currency from the Middle Ages - a certain weight of silver thaler, which is called the dollar in British. Therefore, there was and is the Australian dollar, Canadian dollar, North American dollar, etc., but not the Australian or Canadian pound. Thus, there was a clear division of the national currency in the metropolis, where its laws of money supply formation and the global one — the currency for trade — are naturally expressed in silver coins, a certain amount of which in turn is expressed in gold. Those. Now neither Australia, nor Canada, nor even the USA have their own currency, but use world money. Also, after gaining control of the main oil production in oil-producing countries after the Second World War, the Anglo-Saxons had influence on their former colonies, also imposing their conditions on occupied and defeated Germany, Italy and Japan, as well as weakened France (though DeGol exchanged dollars for gold) and made the Big Seven and their currency tied to gold, but black. And the course and the amount of paper printing is determined by the trading on the London Oil Exchange ... But time goes on and the main oil production turned out to be out of control of the Sevens, which means the dollar is living out its last years and nothing can be changed, and the keeper of gold - the United States squandered it as unnecessary on that moment (of course not in vain because the army was built on this, like the air and auto industries and ensured the Seven economic growth, buying up resources in third countries, first for gold and then for currency) But recently, the Russian Federation, China, and also Japan and Germany was gradually bought from the USA, Canada, etc., returning papers and exchanging for a piece of gold. And in the final remainder, Canada will remain with chopped green paper, which even to wipe the anus is difficult to use. There is no gold, and no one will sell the irreplaceable resources, which Canada simply does not have, for paper. And the millennial remedy, i.e. gold or goods, as you call it, will return its place. The fact that oil production is not under control is the fact that the Seven in the form of NATO does not have the strength to dictate its conditions to China and the Russian Federation, and Germany and Japan will add nails to the coffin of the World Order as soon as possible.

          I don’t understand what your comment is about, in recent years Russia has been one of the main buyers of gold, reserves in the region of 1390 tons. If you are hinting at "party gold", then you need to add the gold invested by Nikolashka in the FRS before the revolution, and the gold of tsarist Russia frozen on accounts abroad and which no one will ever return to us hi

            Why am I all this - why shouldn't "our" government oblige all operating mines to sell the mined gold to the state, especially since we have free currency? $ 4.8 billion invested in US GKOs in February. 4.8mln $: 40t. Dol for 1 kg = 120 tons! Think about why "ours" prefer to invest in dollar bonds rather than gold? The percentage of return on investment is incomparable, because on trenzheries only 3%, and gold is growing in price much faster. It feels like they are paying tribute! am

          So the scam was opened thanks to the Chinese wink
          In October 2009, the U.S. Department of the Treasury sent a shipment of gold bullion to China from a repository located in Fort Knox. Countries regularly ship and receive gold in order to pay debts and balance the trade balance. Most of the gold in the world is exchanged and stored in depositories under the supervision of a special organization - the London Bullion Market Association - LBMA.

          When the batch was received, the Chinese government ordered a special inspection of the purity and weight of the gold bars, since China is the largest foreign holder of US Treasury securities. Chinese officials were shocked when it turned out that the ingots turned out to be fake. The batch consisted of tungsten ingots coated with a thin layer of real gold. These proven "gold" bars were made in the United States and stored at Fort Knox for many years.

          The Chinese government immediately launched an investigation and issued a statement that hinted at the fraud of the US government. The registration numbers for this batch of ingots indicated that counterfeit ingots were received from the banks of the Federal Reserve during the Clinton administration. It was then that by order of the Fed's bankers, somewhere from 1,3 to 1,5 million tungsten tiles weighing 400 ounces were manufactured. 640 of these tungsten tiles were gold plated and shipped to Fort Knox, where they remain to this day.

          According to a Chinese investigation, the remainder of these 1,3-1,5 million tungsten tiles weighing 400 ounces was also plated with gold and then sold internationally. Not only did fake gold fall into the United States' gold reserves, but the global market was also tricked by Federal Reserve Bankers and Clintons. Clinton's Golden Scam is neither more nor less - 600 billion dollars.

        Gold is considered an undervalued asset and a real alternative to paper money if Bretton Wood still collapses (in the next 20 years). Many, on the contrary, consider gold an unnecessary metal. Opinions are different. Another question is that there is almost no physical gold in the USA in the volume that they declare, or it is replaced by gilded dummies from other metals.

      Everything suggests that Germany is on the verge of a grandiose chucher. Despite peppy statements that there is no crisis on the issue of refugees, most sex politicians think differently. There is an understanding that the states with the help of the Turks have bent the EU and contributed to the development of the refugee crisis. And their flow will only increase. The only way out is to drastically change their foreign policy, which the United States will certainly enjoy. Hence the desire to return the gold coin.

        On February 4, 1965, the French president declares: he considers it necessary that international exchange be established on the indisputable basis of the gold standard. And he explains his position: “Gold does not change its nature: it can be in bars, bars, coins; it has no nationality, it has long been and is accepted by the whole world as a constant value. There is no doubt that even today the value of any currency is determined on the basis of direct or indirect, real or perceived links with gold. ” Then de Gaulle demanded that the United States - in accordance with BVS - "living gold". In 1965, at a meeting with US President Lyndon Johnson, he announced that he intended to exchange 1.5 billion paper dollars for gold at the official exchange rate: $ 35 per ounce. Johnson was informed that the French ship loaded with "green candy wrappers" was in the New York port, and a French plane with the same "luggage" landed at the airport. Johnson promised the President of France serious problems. In response, De Gaulle announced the evacuation of NATO headquarters, 29 NATO and US military bases from France, and the withdrawal of 35 troops from the alliance. In the end, this was done, but while the essence and the matter, de Gaulle for two years significantly facilitated the famous Fort Knox: more than 3 thousand tons of gold.

        On 15 on August 1971, US President Richard Nixon, in his televised speech, announced that henceforth the gold security of the dollar is being canceled. At the same time, "green" devalued.

          All this is wonderful. But in 1991, the USSR was torn apart and we had to switch to settlements in dollars. Despite the fact that in the States people do not see living dollars, and the authenticity of a piece of paper is recognized only by the one who prints it and then sells it to the US government. Despite the fact that all currencies are derived from the dollar, a speculative market has emerged in the Internet era, where people make money by switching from one "currency" to another. I wonder who always wins in this "market". The transition to the "gold standard" is a war.

            No. We missed a lot of the hike, or, due to age, did not notice. Much earlier ! The ruble was stuffed into the city building as a sovereign monetary unit, and the Pavlov dog's "reform" stated this fact by introducing banknotes without an inscription on them - from a ruble to five - a credit card secured with goods and services of the USSR state, and from tens to hundreds - a bank note The USSR was provided with all the assets of this STATE, and not private as it is now, bank. This is how the banking system founded by a friend of all athletes who did not go to Breit Wood, when they wanted to wrap his hands behind his back after the war, was “de-Stalinized”.

          From copper and aluminum (90:10) receive aluminum bronze - "aufor". Beryllium bronze is called "Randol" (popular in prisons, where it goes on dental crowns).

          Beryllium bronze during the late USSR and early CIS was pushed to the Poles in the form of gold wedding rings in Western Belarus, including on the clothing market in Grodno.
          And in the 90s, the Poles in Bialystok formed "gold" and "silver" rows on the market, where they pushed a simple piece of jewelry with a 999 standard. Residents of the CIS took a bang. Together with jewelery, the same sellers issued seals and labels from Russian jewelery factories. I don't know where the Poles could get so much "gold" ... wassat

        Why tungsten? Aluminum bronze is much cheaper and perfectly imitates gold.

        The problem of making a good counterfeit ingot is that gold has a very high density, almost twice as dense as lead and two and a half times as dense as steel. You usually don’t notice it, because small gold rings, etc. they weigh too little for the difference in density to become apparent, but if you ever held a gold bar in your hands, then you could feel it absolutely correctly: a gold bar is very, very heavy.

        The standard gold bullion for inter-bank trading, known as the London Good Delivery Bar, weighs 400 ounces (more than 33 pounds) (about 12,5 kg, translator's note), has a small book size of paperback. An ingot of steel of the same size would weigh only 13,5 pounds.

        There are very few metals that are as dense as gold, and, with two exceptions, they cost more than it. The first exception is depleted uranium, which is cheap if you are a government, but it is very difficult for private traders to achieve. In addition, it is radioactive, which can also be a problem.

        The second exception is tungsten. Tungsten is much cheaper than gold, but its density is almost the same, the difference is three-tenths. The main differences are a different color, and much, much greater hardness. Pure gold is a fairly soft metal; you can scratch it with your fingernail.

        A first-class forged “gold” ingot should fully correspond to the present in color, hardness, density, chemical, and physical properties. To do this, you must have a tungsten billet with dimensions 1/8 inch smaller (in all three dimensions) than a gold bar, then apply a layer of real gold 1/16 inch thick on it. In the hands, such an ingot would feel like a real one. A sample would have been beaten on it, a chemical analysis would have shown gold, and it would have weighed exactly as much as a real gold bar.

      Currently, the gold reserve of Germany is estimated at 3400 tons.

      The country unleashing almost two world wars losing in them has a second supply of gold.

      Well, yes, personally checked?

      some facts from open sources in Germany:
      1. The Bundesbank conducted an audit of German gold in the United States, and did not find any violations in terms of quantity and quality in a random sample.
      2. A large number of German gold in the United States is explained by 2 reasons. first, in the 50s to the 70s of the 20th century, Germany earned a lot of money for export to America and left money there to secure loan contracts for new supplies. second, they were afraid of the attacks of the USSR and wanted to have money outside of Europe.
      3. under the "2020" program, 50% of all gold must be returned to Germany,
      4. transport is very slow because no more than 1000 kg of gold is taken per plane, otherwise the insurance does not take risks. 50 tons per year - this is 50 special flights from America.

    The gold reserve not only provides guarantees for German industry, but also provides the country with a leading role in the European community.


    Thus, his absence undermines the leading role of Germany in the European community.
    On the topic that it has long been plundered by honest Yankees, a lot of information.
    For those who rush to object, the question is: why have the Germans still not returned it?
    Answer: The USA refused to return it. To allow German experts to German gold - too.

    <br>•
    American dummies for China.



    Many have already heard how Americans love to keep gold at home, and not even let them look at it. Here is the old yet another lying situation between America and Chinese gold. You can accuse me that I am again slandering honest Yankees, but this is a fact, a historical fact, which in the future will probably be rewritten by the Soros Foundation in its textbooks, and it turns out that the Chinese dictators themselves replaced the ingots.

    Instead of ingots, the Americans returned the fakes to the Chinese.

    An indirect confirmation that the Americans have a fair supply of gold is a not so long history with the so-called Chinese tungsten gold. In October 2009, the US Treasury Department shipped a shipment of gold to China, 5600 bars of 400 ounces each. Either the Chinese government suspected something bad, or it probably knew, but for the first time in history, experts were instructed to check the purity and weight of gold bars. And immediately a scandal erupted - the ingots turned out to be fake. They were made of tungsten, covered with the finest amalgam of real gold. The registration numbers of the batch of ingots indicated that the fakes came from the banks of the Federal Reserve System at the time when Bill Clinton was the president of the United States. It was then that at the request of the Fed bankers, for some reason, about one and a half million tungsten tiles weighing 400 ounces were made. Later, 640 thousand. "Ingots" from this party went to Fort Knox. And the rest, as the Chinese found out, the Yankees sold on the international gold market. The damage from the so-called Clinton scam, experts estimated at $ 600 billion.

    Benjamin Franklin said:
    "Nothing more. Going to bed early and getting up early - that's what makes a person healthy, wealthy and smart."
    Therefore, we can say that the Americans "care" about the Germans. No gold and European friends will say "thank you"! laughing

    "Bank of Germany is rapidly recovering domestic gold reserves"
    grandmother Angela was going to put a monument to Erdogashka in gold, how to save the Geyropii? Or has she lost faith in a Marikan negro? laughing

    Apparently the reformatting of the world is really getting ready.
    Now the accumulation of reserves and ...
    Although what is there "and" in Brussels may have begun today.
    I also read today an article about Ukraine being cleared
    from Aboriginal people in America in case the Yellow Stone does smell.
    And the type of new America will be from the Baltic states and to Bulgaria and Romania.

    so, nevertheless, are they driving a fake?
    In fact, no gold is returned?
    I will never believe that the chances will be mixed up with a tungsten ingot with gold - not those people.
    Either disa, or still GOES gold back to Germany.
    If desa, then why? If tungsten, then why keep quiet? If the TRUTH ??? What would it be?
    Canada won all the gold stupidly driven into the market ...
