Arranging Storage for Investment Gold Bars and coins
As you’d expect this all depends on where you’re storing your gold! An Ultra-Secure vault is safer than a local bank's box, which is usually more secure than a home safe.
For any gold investor you need to balance the dollar value of a complete loss with the probability of theft, practicality and inconvenience of location and speed of access in an emergency.
Bullion vaulting facilities offer a specialist and high secure storage service, storing your metals in segregated or pooled vaults.
Mixed vaults hold various high value assets, such as gold, diamonds, cash and artwork.
Big banks used to offer secure vaulting, including bullion storage. However, due to the 2007/08 banking crisis and global banking law changes, these vaults are now less secure.
Either bank or non-bank, safety deposit boxes are good for smaller values of gold bullion and for convenience if the facility is near at hand.
In the US, where privacy and gun ownership are concerns, storing gold in banks deters thieves due to legal and privacy issues.
We recommend ultra-secure specialist non-bank vaulting for the best security, lowest risk, and fair pricing.
