The fate of the US dollar and goldHerisau, )
Worldwide, the U.S. dollar is considered the reserve currency, still. Gold is more promising.
The U.S. dollar accounts for about half of global trade, debt and credit. But the Ukraine war makes one wonder whether the days of the U.S. dollar's importance are not numbered. Today, about 16 percent of Russia's foreign exchange reserves are in U.S. dollars. The opinion has often been expressed that the sphere of influence of the U.S. dollar could decline and the currency system as a whole could change in the future. However, currencies are not the only assets held by central banks. Financial reserves for almost all countries also consist of gold. In this context, gold serves as a stabilizer and provides diversification. And gold could mean the real anchor for the world's monetary system. That's because gold is backed by central banks. Unlike paper currencies, which always decline in value when new money is printed, the precious metal retains its value. This is because it is a physical commodity and the supply is limited, it cannot be increased at will.
Gold also has no credit or counterparty risk. About one-fifth of all gold ever mined is held by central banks. The most powerful nations, such as the U.S., Germany, France and Italy, hold more than half of their reserves in the form of gold. Russia's attack could now become the catalyst for a new global monetary system. After all, the economic sanctions against Russia are enormous, and foreign exchange reserves have been frozen without precedent. And the move away from the U.S. dollar is not a new issue. Gold could become a non-currency anchor and also take on an increasingly important role with central banks. For investors it is also advisable to have a few gold shares in the depot. For example, stocks of royalty companies such as Empress Royalty or Gold Royalty are suitable for the purpose of their inherent diversification.
