Gold still accounts for a very small percent of China's $3.2 trillion in foreign exchange reserves, compared with the international average of 10 percent.

Seems like there is less here then the headline promised.

For those of us who don’t have the time or inclination to click through to this excellent site:

#1 United States, 8,133.5 tonnes
#2 Germany, 3,391.3 tonnes
#3 Italy, 2,451.8 tonnes
#4 France, 2,435.4 tonnes
#5 China, 1,054.1 tonnes
#6 Switzerland, 1,040.1 tonnes
#7 Russia, 934.9 tonnes
#8 Japan, 765.2 tonnes
#9 Netherlands, 612.5 tonnes
#10 India, 557.7 tonnes

Those are “official” holdings, I’d bet India and China have twice as much in private hands.
