UK International Reserves - September 2017

The Bank of England manages the UK’s official reserves on behalf of the Government. We publish data on UK holdings of international reserves and foreign currency liquidity once a month.
Published on 04 October 2017

The UK’s official international reserves are made up of:

  • foreign currencies
  • gold
  • IMF special drawing rights (SDRs)
  • the UK’s reserves tranche position at the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

We use the IMF’s international reserves template to publish this data.

Summary data are also published by HM Treasury in a monthly press release on the third working day of every month.

Historic data are also available:
