Atyrau residents bought 16.5 kg of gold from banks in October
In total, last month, residents of Kazakhstan purchased over 3,000 gold bars, ATPress.kz reports.
"The leader among the regions in terms of buying bars is the city of Almaty (53% of the total number of sold bars), followed by Atyrau (13%), Nur-Sultan (11%) and other regions (23%)," reported in the website of the National Bank.
Simple calculations show that residents of Atyrau in October bought 398 gold bars from banks with a total weight of over 16.5 kg.
Meanwhile, as indicated in the information of the country's main financial regulator, at present, it is possible to buy and sell gold bars at Halyk Bank, Eurasian Bank, Jýsan Bank, Bank CenterCredit, as well as in non-bank exchange offices.
The main factor in ensuring the liquidity of the gold bars market is the possibility of redemption of bars by banks and non-bank exchange offices with the payment of money to the client "day in day".
The National Bank reminded that each ingot is produced with protective elements (mirror surface of ingots, microtext and embossed edge) and in special packaging that protects the ingots from mechanical damage and makes it easy to check whether the package was opened or not.
