The Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe (RBZ) has urged members of the public to disregard videos and messages circulating on social media in which some people claim to have received the yet-to-be-issued gold coins.
In a statement, the RBZ said the videos and messages are fake news as the gold coins will become available on 25 July 2022. Reads the statement:
Videos and messages circulating on social media purporting or giving out that gold coins are available for sale and that some people already have them are nothing but fake news.
For the record, RBZ has not released any gold coins and the gold coins will become available on 25 July 2022 as earlier advised by RBZ.
