Dear Enquiries,

Thank you for your response.

Finally, may I ask of any data relating to what kind of securities back the currency currently in issue, for example a pie chart of the percentage amount of each kind of security backing the currency i.e. loans to banks, gilts, financial bonds etc. So I can get an idea of what amount of each type of securities back the currency.

Thank you for your help

Yours sincerely,

Matthew Cooper
