South Africa's gross foreign reserves came in at to USD 49.54 billion in April 2019, little-changed from USD 49.68 billion in the previous month. The decrease of USD 141 million mainly reflected the foreign currency payments made on behalf of the government, valuation adjustments due to the appreciation of the US dollar and the decline in the US dollar gold price. These factors were partially offset by matured foreign exchange swaps previously conducted for liquidity management purposes. Foreign Exchange Reserves in South Africa averaged 30232 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.
