What is Monetary Base?

Monetary Base or money base is the portion of currency held by a commercial bank’s deposit with its central banks reserves and the total currency circulating in the public. So if the central bank of a country held 6 billion units of currency in reserve and the volume of currency circulating in a country was at 700 million then the monetary base for the country would be 6.7 billion units of currency.
