Russian Gold Reserve

Russian Gold

Historically, gold holds its value and is the experts’ pick for diversifying your portfolio and potentially increasing its performance. In fact, gold has increased in value over 150% since 2001. As opposed to equities, which can go from very high levels down to zero in a very short time, gold is never going to zero. When other markets collapse, gold has historically seen huge increases in value as people make a quick flight to quality. Gold investing allows individuals to accumulate assets that protect their wealth.

Engraving lathe puts marking on a bar with “four nines”- 99,99% pure (State Standart 28058-89) at “The Gulidov Krasnoyarsk Non-Ferrous Metals Plant”. “Four nines” is the highest purity of gold bar which is economic to produce for the investment market. Only scientific market would not anything of greater purity, and the production costs would increase disproportionately. Mandatory marking consists of serial number, sample, gem characters, stamp, production date and bar weight in grams or ounces. Bars of the State Standard have the weight from 11000 g to 13300g. Bars of Krasnoyarsky plant have the branch quality mark- Good Delivery status what allows to come to the international market of gems. Besides Krasnoyarsky plant, five more Russian plants have the same status. Total number of the factories all over the world that have the same high Good Delivery Status is 55.
Krasnoyarsk Non-Ferrous Metals Plant produces also gold bars of nine types (State Standard Р51572-2000)- from one gram to one kilogram of gold. This plant produces silver, platinum and palladium bars, besides the gold ones.

P.S. Reserves of gold in Russian government reserve was 495.9 tons in December of 2008.

    • Easily.
      How much of the Russian golden reserve comes from the gold confiscated in the Third Reich? And how much of it comes from the dental gold?
      TBH, not too much. The Auschwitz gold was sent to Swiss banks long before the Third Reich collapsed and Ruskies could get hold of it.

    • This is not my comment but I know the mental midget who wrote it!

      Boris is a highly intelligent man who has a wonderful sense of humor and a beautiful heart of gold.

      However, he does have a firey passionate Hellborn temper!

      So maybe you not in a good position! Time will tell! 😛

        • There are fake gold bars that look real.The gold above looks real because they have serial numbers and the country of production on them.Be careful if you buy gold because there is metal that looks like gold but it is really cupero nickel.

              • I want to make it perfectly clear so no one else will get all excited and confussed like Captain America did!
                I WAS NOT implying that the gold in this post is fake!

                I was making a joke about the US not having any gold at all! 😛

                  • SSSR, I’m sorry to be the one to tell you, but Fort Knox belongs to China!

                    It doesn’t matter, all the gold in there is fake as well!

                    • Be skeptical about what you read.If Fort Knox is China’s gold now there is a gold reserve in New York City and probably other reserves only the US government knows about.I don’t think any president of the United States or leader of any other country would let all of the gold in the country go!

    • I know you are joking, and when I first saw people writing watermarks across their pictures online I thought “get over yourselves!” But these days the internet is swamped in high quality digital images and if you spend the time/money/effort/talent/skill to go out and make these images (and post process etc), you full well deserve to put your name on it (or photo agency, etc), and I strongly urge all photographers to do that because it is all too easy for some lesser dodgy entity to steal/imitate/rip off. So hats off to the photographers and ER who bring them to us intact with the accompanying articles.

  1. These aren’t the obvious fakes, but they could still be gold-plated tungsten, which is not easy to spot. See:

  2. You can’t sell gold in Russia. Oh! You can but don’t sell! The Russian goverment (State bank) can sell you a gold brick but the goverment buy it back for the prime price, but with minus 21%.

    Why is that? I don’t know.

  3. How much of the Russian golden reserve comes from the gold confiscated in the Third Reich? And how much of it comes from the dental gold?

    • Actually none.. The German gold is in partly in Switzerland, partly in South America, and some of it is in the Vatican’s Bank. The 3rd Reich evacuated the gold before the allied forces could grab it.

    • Ask Chaushesku… Oh wait! you killed him! too bad… The gold was in his private bank account, somewhere in a vault in a Carribean bank… :)))

  4. You’re making a lot of fine arguments in this blog post nevertheless its tricky in my situation to concentrate on this great article on the broken theme!
