Last 28 September, a dollar value hit an all-time high of over K3,000 in the black market and consequently, the pure gold reached a record high of K2.22 million per tical in history.

The price of precious yellow metal sank to below K1.785 million per tical (0.578 ounce, or 0.016 kilogram), indicating a significant drop of over K30,000 per tical within one week, according to Yangon Region Gold Entrepreneurs Association (YGEA).
Last 9 December, the price of pure gold was estimated at K1.817 million per tical.
Starting from October-end, the price has been quite stable. However, the rumour of the issuance of new currency notes (K20,000 and K50,000 notes) shook up the domestic gold market and the price soared to K1,817,000 per tical on 9 December.
“The news of the currency paper imported by air on 8 December was spreading, igniting the rumour of issuance of the new currency note. It hiked up the gold prices on 9 December. After the Central Bank of Myanmar dismissed the rumours of new currency notes, the gold price went down,” said U Myo Myint, chair of Yangon Region Gold Entrepreneurs Association.
People will be certainly notified when the CBM will print the new currency notes. At present, the CBM denied the rumours, according to its notification released on 9 December.
The exchange rate stands at K1,788 per US dollar in the local forex market at present.
