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

South Africa's gross foreign reserves unexpectedly rose to USD 50.30 billion in November of 2017 from USD 48.90 billion in a month earlier and beating market expectations of USD 48.84 billion. It was the highest amount since April 2013, reflecting the matured foreign exchange swaps conducted for liquidity management and the depreciation of the US dollar against most currencies, which was partially offset by the foreign exchange payments made on behalf of the government. Foreign Exchange Reserves in South Africa averaged 28798.12 USD Million from 1998 until 2017, 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.
