China has called quits on its 18-month gold buying spree, causing precious metal prices to stumble this week as the world’s largest buyer unexpectedly closes its tab.

In 2023, the People’s Bank of China purchased more gold than any of the world’s other central banks, swelling its reserves of the precious metal to more than 2,000 tons to break free from the U.S. dollar standard. Chinese consumers have been following suit, amassing gold coins, bars, and jewelry as Chinese stocks, currency, and real estate have succumbed to economic volatility and plunging value.
