South Africa's gross foreign reserves dropped to USD 48.33 billion in May 2019 from USD 49.54 billion in the previous month and reaching the smallest figure since August 2017. The decrease of USD 1,209 million mainly reflected the redemption of government’s foreign currency obligation and valuation adjustments due to the appreciation of the USD. These factors were partially offset by the foreign exchange swaps conducted for liquidity management purposes and the increase in the USD gold price. Foreign Exchange Reserves in South Africa averaged 30302.42 USD Million from 1998 until 2019, reaching an all time high of 51889 USD Million in February of 2012 and a record low of 5316 USD Million in September of 1998.
