Gold used to be important.
During and after World War II, every major developed country amassed as much physical gold as they could. It stabilized currencies and signaled independence.
But with the end of the gold standard in 1971, most countries began to sell off their reserves.
So much so that in 1999, an agreement was formed to limit the amount of gold that central banks could sell. Fast forward to today, and Canada’s central bank owns ZERO gold.
Despite the agreement, most countries continued to shed their gold reserves as fast as possible.
