Zimbabwe to back its currency with gold

Date: February 12, 2024

Zimbabwe’s Finance Minister announced new measures to stabilize its local currency in an online press briefing held Monday.

Zimbabwe to back its currency with hard assets such as gold to end exchange-rate instability, Finance Minister Mthuli Ncube said.

“The idea going forward is to make sure that we manage the growth of liquidity which has a high correlation to money supply growth and inflation.

The way to do that is to link the exchange rate to some hard asset such as gold,” said Ncube.

He also announced a conference of African ministers that Zimbabwe will host at the end of this month.
