South Africa Foreign Exchange Reserves  1998-2017 | Data | Chart

South Africa's gross foreign reserves increased to USD 49.38 billion in September of 2017 from USD 46.92 billion in a month earlier and above market expectations of USD 47 billion. It was the largest amount since August 2014, driven by the proceeds from the foreign debt issuance by National Treasury (NT), the depreciation of the US dollar against the British pound and the maturing of foreign exchange swaps conducted for liquidity management purposes. This was partially offset by foreign exchange payments made on behalf of the government and the decline in the US dollar gold price. Foreign Exchange Reserves in South Africa averaged 27720.54 USD Million from 1998 until 2016, reaching an all time high of 51889.00 USD Million in February of 2012 and a record low of 5316.00 USD Million in September of 1998.
