Now that you’ve decided to buy gold and get into true money, its time to think about properly storing and protecting your investment. There are two primary options in safeguarding your gold purchase. You may either arrange to take personal possession, or have your recently purchased gold bullion stored at a third-party insured vault.




As our CEO and Founder Mike Maloney, author of the #1 selling precious metals book Guide to Investing in Gold and Silver, is often quoted, “If you can’t hold it, you don’t own it”. Being gold and silver investors ourselves, we first prefer to take physical delivery, as this is the only counter-party free alternative and the surest way to ensure true ownership.

To Maximize the Efficiency and Security of Your Decision for Home Storage... Consider the Following:

1) The amount of space the metals will occupy.

2) Your safety and comfort level.

3) Creative means of home storage.

The Space the Metals Will Take

The most obvious consideration to address is the storage space. The relatively small area required to securely store gold in comparison to silver makes home storage very convenient. For instance, American Gold Eagles, are sold in 1 oz. increments and when ordered in large quantities are shipped in tubes containing 20 coins. A single tube of Gold Eagles fits in the palm of your hand and is about 3.5" in height with the approximate diameter of a dollar coin.

The high value, high density of gold helps as it opens up possibilities of where you can store your metals regardless of where you live or your housing situation. Thus, gold's compact form and conveniency creates an almost limitless array of possibilities for home storage.

Your Safety and Comfort Level

When it comes to home storage, an important factor to consider is your safety, peace of mind, and comfort. Your safety should be of upmost concern, thus never hold more in your dwelling than you feel comfortable to sleep well at home with.

Additionally, limit the number of individuals who have knowledge of your investment. Investment in precious metals should be a completely private decision, the less people who know about this, the less of a potential target you will be. Once you establish a degree of confidence and security with your decision you will fully understand the benefits of home storage.

Creative Means of Home Storage

Try to think outside the box and go against conventional thinking. Most importantly Have Fun With It!




Everyone usually thinks of the same typical options like: purchasing a safe and/or having an alarm system. Challenge yourself to think of multiple different means of embedding the metals. Consider ways to secure the metals 3 layers deep and away from apparent view from a burglar, who would be looking for things to grab and go. For example: In a floor safe that is bolted to the ground, covered by floor boards, with carpet and a China cabinet over it. Simply do a Google search on terms like: “storage compartments”, “secret bookcase” or other like key terms on YouTube. This will give you many creative ideas. You should be able to discover many clever solutions that the average thief would not even think of.

Once you are comfortable with the idea of having gold at home and have taken the proper safety measures, you will feel at ease and be able to understand the value of having physical possession of your bullion.

one question- how can you be sure that someone isn't tracking parcels from metals dealers, i.e. delivery truck drivers, etc.? The dealers always want your home address (unless you have a box number, which I don't). Or they could follow you home if you pick it up yourself. I know of someone who had all his silver robbed by a couple of fake cops knocking on his door- they knew he had it and he claimed he never told more than two close family about his silver.
