This is a list of the top 30 sovereign states of the world sorted by their foreign-exchange reserves excluding gold reserves, but including special drawing rights (SDRs) and International Monetary Fund (IMF) reserve positions.

The table includes the latest available data, mostly from the IMF,[1] and includes certain economies that are not considered to be sovereign states (such as Taiwan, Hong Kong and the Eurozone, because of their special economic statuses).
