The new Yuan, which will be gold-backed, will be introduced next Tuesday, April 19, 2016. China decided to make the Yuan a more reliable currency when the International Monetary Fund (IMF) agreed to add it to the list of world currencies used for Global Reserves and International Trade.
China has been collecting huge amounts of gold bullion for years. Now, with a new gold-backed Yuan to be issued next Tuesday, the entire world will have a choice of a new currency to use for international trade: The old US Dollar which is backed by nothing, or the new Chinese Yuan, which is backed by gold. Which currency would YOU use?
