As China prepares to announce their gold reserve amount by end of the month, debate over gold backed Yuan increases sharply

As part of their requirements to enter into the SDR basket of currencies in October, China will soon be revealing the quantity of their gold reserves sometime between now and Sept. 30.  And with them also recently being appointed the managers of the M SDR internationalization program, debate over China implementing a gold backed currency is once again increasing at an accelerating rate.

At the heart of the discussion is how China is using their growing geo-political power to integrate 3rd world nations, especially those in Africa, in moving forward despite not having the economic finances to expand their infrastructure base.  And to date this has been shown to be moderately successful in a myriad of different ways, and could be the catalyst for catapulting a gold backed Yuan using their growing alliances and Silk Road strategies to envelop a large portion of the world under a financial umbrella that would be impervious to U.S. and Western subjugation.

In his March interview with CCTV the geostrategic analyst highlighted that China is "facilitating trade and development for Third World nations in ways major Western funders could not." Beijing is interested in boosting logistic networks in Eurasia and therefore it founded the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) to fund the projects. 
Furthermore, "China may also offer barter trades in lieu of cash transactions for rail infrastructure projects, as was the case with Thailand. It seems to work. For cash-strapped economies, barter may emerge as an essential instrument of regional economic stability and a 'gold yuan' may help facilitate such a paradigm shift," Maavak elaborated speaking to Sputnik. In the context of the ongoing Eurasian integration, the RIC (Russia, India and China) nations may "weaponize" their gold holdings to ring-fence the Greater Eurasian geo-economy, according to the analyst. - Sputnik News
Whether it is through a gold backed SDR, or a gold backed Yuan, the world is rushing towards a return of some form of a gold standard.  And unfortunately for the West, which has been spending their currencies bailing out their banks and propping up their stock markets, China has been the one cultivating economic partnerships that when the time comes, could catapult them into becoming the masters of the next global financial system.


No chance of the yuan being backed by gold until gold revalues substantially higher. Clearly, people would take the cheap gold from China instead of yuan until such time gold is properly valued. At that time the Yuan will be the world currency if the reserves exceeds the 10,000 tonne levels so many expect they have.

All China has to do is peg it at a much higher rate. This will force the USA to do the same or suffer the consequences.

Correct Brady and it is coming much faster than we think. Also I believe China has much more than 10,000 tonnes

The Chinese Yuan will be devalued well before it ever becomes "gold-backed". The next crisis should usher in SDR bond plumbing large enough for the yuan to gain market share as a sharing reserve currency (USD, Pounds, Euros, Yuan, Yen).

Likely also a long time coming (10 - 15 years) before China reveals it's true "Official Gold Reserves" to boost the perceived value of the Yuan.
