In addition to bullion worth 10 billion euros ($ 11.7 billion), the bank transferred another 4.5 billion euros ($ 5.3 billion) in bonds in the operation led by the Royal Dutch Military Police.
The cash and gold were transported about 20 kilometers in trucks, guarded by the armed military police, amid columns of police motorcycles, and under the supervision of a police helicopter, they flew overhead.
The operation began on Friday and ended on Saturday afternoon, while the Military Police said in a statement that “the carefully planned operation was carried out smoothly and safely.”
The move came due to the renovation of the headquarters of the Central Bank in Amsterdam, where the bonds will be transferred and the bank has gone, permanently, to a basement that has not yet been built in the city of Zeist in the center of the country.
It is noteworthy that the Dutch central bank does not store all of its gold in the Netherlands, as it has large reserves stored in the United States, Britain and Canada.
