that a gold bar is gold that has been casted or minted into objects of various sizes, shapes, purities and weights? The shapes can be rounded, angular or more complex, but the most common are cuboids and truncated pyramids. Bars can have various degrees of purity, but are usually almost pure gold. The weight of a bar – expressed using various weight standards (usually grams and multiples thereof, troy ounces or regional units such as don, baht, tael or tola) – can also differ.

In November 2013, the Czech National Bank decided to use the koruna exchange rate as an additional instrument for easing the monetary conditions. Since then, the Bank Board has repeatedly confirmed the validity of this exchange rate commitment. At its most recent meeting on 22 December 2016, the Bank Board stated again that the CNB would not discontinue the use of the exchange rate as a monetary policy instrument before 2017 Q2. The Bank Board considers it likely that the commitment will be discontinued in mid-2017.
