Gold Coins Will Be Purchased Using Both Forex And Zimdollar - Mangudya

Gold Coins Will Be Purchased Using Both Forex And Zimdollar - Mangudya

The Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe (RBZ) says gold coins that were announced last week will be bought using both foreign and local currency (Zimbabwe dollar).

RBZ Governor John Mangudya said the gold coins will be introduced into the market mid-this month.

Speaking in an interview with The Sunday News, Mangudya said the coins will be exchangeable locally and outside the country.

Mangudya said authorities have already engaged international financial partners on the soon-to-be-introduced coins. He said:

Basically, the gold coins will be an instrument for storing value and they will be purchasable in both foreign and local currency.

Once minted they will be distributed by Fidelity Printers and Refiners, local banks and international banking partners that we will announce in due course.

These gold coins will be used both locally and internationally because we have engaged with international banking partners.

What I must emphasise is that gold is gold and it has an international value.

Mangudya said those who will purchase the coins will also get bearer certificates. He said:

Since these coins are essentially meant to store value they can be used for the purpose of trading and also can be used as collateral. The purchaser can also convert them to cash if need be.

Our starting point for purchases will be one ounce of gold which will be representing approximately 22 carats.

Mangudya urged members of the public to disregard circulating images purporting to be the gold coins on social media platforms saying they are fake. He said:

As we have said, these coins will be minted at Fidelity Printers, who will be in charge of the distribution together with the banks and international banking partners.

The images that have been circulating are fake and the public should stand guided.

For now, Fidelity has been given the green light to start minting the coins so we expect that the coins will be available in the market by mid-July.

I would advise Zimbabweans to keep their hard earned us dollars, not to fall into this trap by thiz criminals. If their concern is really that they want to help us store the value of our money, they should just tell us to keep US dollars and pounds. Mheno Zvenyu mukabhaizwa, that's a trick to mop up all the us dollars which is believed to be hold or kept by Zimbabweans.

Am I the only one who has realised that since the official dollarisation all the pro-RTGS commentators, @Tkt,, and company have since gone into hibernation.

Or maybe they have hidden under new pseudonyms? Why do I ask? Because I sincerely feel that after my initial euphoria over the Gold Coin, I now think this Gold Coin fad is a half-baked and fast fading to boot. I bet my bottom dollar that @Tkt @VYBZ Ketero & Co. would be the first to tear me to pieces

@Sekuru waBona, USD ragara ranga richishanda alongside the Zimbabwean dollar and government yakataura zvinhu zvanga zvagara zvichingozivikanwa. But they also said USD richamira kushandiswa muna2025 proving that de-dollarisation is in process

@chimboti pizza at times it's best to post after paying due diligence

people were arguing here that there won't be dollarisation and what happened last week? the US dollar was legalised albeit overdue as the economy had already dollarised

the gold coins we shall see as the people doesn't trust the monetary authorities anymore considering the past pains

@Michiavelli, dollarisation yaukutaura ndeipi. Gold coins are going to lessen people's dependence on the US dollar as a means of storing value. This is a huge step towards total de-dollarisation

Bearer's Certificate for your gold coins, says the RBZ boss! Looks like these coins will be used to store the value for the whole world as they will be sold all over the world, competing with the US dollar.

My biggest asset is admitting ignorance where I do not know so that those who know may teach me. Gold coins have come to me just as Bearer's Cheque, Bond Notes and RTGS currency came to me in the past. The exception is that gold coins are minted with gold carats. Let the RBZ Governor bring the gold coins.

@citizen, please read paragraph 8. For the avoidance of doubt it says "Mangundya said those who will purchase the coins WILL ALSO get beater certificates", meaning the purchaser will get both a gold coin AND bearer certificate. So please let's not mislead people.
