CBI delivers presold gold coins

Financial Tribune – The Central Bank of Iran said on Saturday it has fulfilled its commitment of delivering the gold coins purchased by people during the presale scheme in the past few months.

According to a statement published on CBI’s official website, a total of about 7.6 million gold coins were offered to applicants in the presale scheme, of which about 1.61 million coins with maturity periods of one month and three months have been delivered to applicants.

One-month maturity presold coins amounted to 790,000 coins with about 820,000 coins having a three-month maturity.

“Only about 5% of purchasers have not so far referred to branches of the agent bank [Bank Melli] to receive their coins,” the regulator said.
