The nation's gold reserves ticked up by 510,000 ounces to 61.61 million ounces in May. The reserves were valued at $ 79.83 billion at the end of May, compared with $78.35 billion at the end of April.
While China is the world's biggest producer of gold, its holdings make up a small percentage of its total foreign exchange reserves, which stood at $3.101 trillion at the end of the last month.
