4.Australian government gold holdings amount to 80 tonnes, with the full value of these holdings recorded as an asset on the RBA’s balance sheet. The RBA’s position in gold has not changed since 1997.This is why Australian country is safe during financial crisis.

I can go on and on and still won’t be enough I wished our country backed minimum of 10% of our total reserve in gold that can be lent to earn passive income since we are developing country so we need to be prepared for the worst crisis like covid in future and also gain passive financial earnings.
I’ve backed my money in gold from time to time instead of keeping in banks just for financial crisis times. I have decent money but its enough for me and my family but the government has a lot of money and it can generate a lot of wealth for the country.
