Glossary Term: GOLD EXCHANGE STANDARD

Definition(s) for GOLD EXCHANGE STANDARD:


1. ) refers to a fixed exchange rate system adopted in the Bretton Woods agreement. It required the U.S. to peg the dollar to gold and other countries to peg their currencies to the dollar.

2. ) A variant form of the gold standard under which a country pegged the value of its currency to the value of the currency of a major country, e.g. sterling or dollars, which was itself on a gold standard. The international monetary regime in force between 1958 and 1970 is frequently described as a gold exchange standard system because of the wide use of the dollar, itself pegged to gold, as a reserve currency and as an accepted medium of exchange internationally.
