South Africa's gross foreign reserves increased slightly to USD 50.67 billion in November of 2018 from USD 50.17 billion in a month earlier and reaching the highest level since May. The rise of USD 507 million mainly reflected the matured foreign exchange swaps conducted for liquidity management purposes, valuation adjustments due to foreign currency and asset price movements and an increase in the returns earned on the foreign exchange reserves. These factors were partially offset by the foreign currency payments made on behalf of the government. Foreign Exchange Reserves in South Africa averaged 29828.15 USD Million from 1998 until 2018, reaching an all time high of 51889 USD Million in February of 2012 and a record low of 5316 USD Million in September of 1998.
