Unfortunately, there is insufficient publicly available evidence at the current time to accurately verify this claim.According to a report published by Daily Sabah, the head of a leading gold refinery said that Turkish banks and gold refineries had helped 100 tons of gold hidden in homes to put back into the financial system. Ayşe Esen, CEO of the Istanbul Gold Refinery (IAR), said they had launched a project with 12 major commercial banks ten years ago to change people’s gold saving habits to prevent them from hoarding the precious metal in their lockers at homes. However, the government has not said it officially, and there are no credible sources to verify that 100 tons of gold is back into circulation.
