The gold price started into the year 2012 at US dollars 1,599.6 per ounce. Over the full year 2011 the price of gold had increased by more than 12% despite the two dips in September and November/December. This made 2011 the tenth consecutive year in which the gold price increased.

Given the low percentage of central banks asset allocation into gold in emerging countries like China (2% versus about 70% in countries like the United States, Germany and France), there is a solid chance that the official sector will continue to be a net buyer of gold in 2013 and even beyond 2013.
