In October 2023, the price of gold reached record highs in Sweden, and many experts believe that the trend will only continue to rise throughout the year. With this in mind, we decided to delve deeper into the subject and compile a list of the ten countries that will produce the most gold in 2024.

It’s no wonder that the allure of gold is attracting more and more interest. With prices on the rise, curiosity arises about which countries actually produce the most gold.

As of March 2024, global gold production has stabilized at an impressive 3,000 tons, slightly less than last year but still remarkably high. This trend, fueled by both a craving for safe investments and tumultuous global events, shows that interest in gold is far from waning.

With the help of fresh data from the US Geological Survey from February 2024, we at Tavex want to share insights on which countries are currently the world’s leading gold producers.
