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

South Africa's gross foreign reserves fell to USD 46.75 billion in July of 2017 from USD 47.35 billion in June and below market expectations of USD 47.1 billion. The decline reflected the foreign exchange swaps conducted for liquidity management purposes and the foreign exchange payments made on behalf of the government. Partially offsetting the fall was an increase in the US dollar gold price and the weaker dollar against most currencies. 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.
