At GoldSilver, we’ve long been pioneers of precious metals storage. We were the first to offer affordable, online, two way market in and out of vault storage. Thousands of customers trust us to store millions of dollars in precious metals.
Which is why we’re excited to announce the next great leap in precious metals storage: The Lunar Storage Platform for Precious Metals.
GoldSilver is partnering with one of the world's leading private space companies to transport and store our customers’ precious metals on the moon.
For serious investors who value security and privacy, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to ensure your gold and silver will be forever safe from burglary or government seizure.
Our storage offerings have long since provided unparalleled peace of mind:
• Managed, under armed guard, by the world’s most trusted names in vault storage
• Fully insured by third party providers for their complete value, for any unforeseen events
• 100% allocated and segregated, so you can take delivery any time -- no costly melt and fabrication fees, no risks of market shortages as ‘fractional’ or ‘pooled’ schemes try to convert to real coins and bars
• All for a fraction of the cost of storing metals at home
But, the Lunar Storage Platform takes that one step further, putting even more physical barrier between your metals and would be thieves and natural disasters.
How it works:
We’ll arrange for your gold and silver to be transported to Merritt Island, Florida. There, it will be guarded 24 hours a day in a private vault until being loaded on one of the world's most powerful rockets at Kennedy Space Center on an exclusive freight flight scheduled for October 19, 2017 (and every 6 months thereafter).
Once in orbit, our first and second stages separate and the main engine of our delivery module ignites and begins its 2+ day journey to the Moon. Once in orbit around the Moon, an X67 Lunar Lander containing your metals separates and descends safely to the surface near the Sea of Tranquility:
After the lander touches down, augers drill into the lunar soil to anchor it against the low gravity — on the moon, a monster box weighs just over 5.5 lbs (2.5 kilograms). You’ll be able to monitor your gold and silver with a personalized beacon that gives you precise location coordinates.
The Lunar Storage Platform for Precious Metals allows you to securely keep your wealth in the one place it’s completely untouchable. It will never be safer.
Starting today, we’re taking reservations for the inaugural flight.
Is Storing Precious Metals on the Moon Crazy?
For over a decade, we’ve been advocating that — while you should keep a portion of your gold and silver holdings close at hand for emergencies — there is no better option for most investors than allocated and segregated vault storage.
But, why today are we offering to move your metals as far away as humanly possible?
Well, it turns out that transporting gold and silver off Earth isn’t so crazy afterall. In fact, it might be just the ultimate way to diversify.
Our specially equipped cargo rocket has over 20 engines and can lift over 117,000 lbs. into orbit. That's the equivalent of 1.7 million troy ounces of gold. At $1,250 spot, that payload is worth over $2.1 billion dollars.
Heavy commercial rocket launches cost around $90 million, that's just 4.5% of the value of the gold inside of it, making this endeavor surprisingly economical.
This gives precious metals investors the ability not only to diversify out of the monetary and political systems of their home country, but the entire planet.
And it could be a reality in the near future.
However, in case you didn’t notice, today’s date is April 1st — April Fool’s Day — and as exciting as space travel and lunar storage is, for now, we aren’t changing.
We believe you should store some gold and silver at home here on Earth. Jeff Clark has even outlined the best solutions for home storage.
But, more importantly, you should also keep the bulk of your metals in secure and fully-insured private vault storage either at home or abroad. It’s far more affordable than most home insurance and security solutions, and your metals can be liquidated and moved with ease when you need to.
We hope you enjoyed our little April Fool’s joke. Hopefully someday we'll have vaults on the moon. For now, we have vaults available in the US, Canada, Hong Kong and Singapore.
