The Bank of England has one of the world’s largest reserves of gold, with around 400,000 bars worth over £100 billion kept in our vaults.
We only own two of the gold bars in our vaults. One of these is on display in the Bank of England Museum
, and you can hold it when you visit. Instead, we store the gold bars on behalf of HM Treasury, other central banks and some commercial firms.
You can watch a video about our gold on our Knowledge Bank website
