    Getting Started is Simple

    No separate accounts to sign up for, no complex forms to fill out, secure storage with GoldSilver.com is as simple as shopping for delivery.

    When browsing our selection of gold and silver bullion, at the guaranteed best prices, just look for the “eligible for storage” seal on each product’s page. Add your selections to your cart. When completing checkout, you’ll have the option to deliver directly to any eligible vault location. We’ll create an account for you automatically.

    It’s that easy. Your order will be quickly shipped to the vault, including all the usual tracking and verification you’d expect. Once in your vault account, you can take delivery any time you need it. Or transfer them to a different vault location. Or even pick up your gold and silver in person.

    The Incomparable Security of Segregated Storage

    Segregated vault storage with a private, fully insured third-party custodian is the safest option for gold and silver bullion storage. With segregated vaulting, your precious metals are held as individual coins or bars in clearly marked and separated space. The original metals purchased are the exact same sold upon liquidation or physical delivery.

    Privately Insured

    All segregated vault storage options offered at GoldSilver.com are third-party insured for $50 million per account.

    Compare that to safe deposit boxes provided by commercial banks. They are not insured by the FDIC from losses as bank deposits are, nor do most provide any sort of affordable insurance option. This leaves investors subject to losses from theft, fire, and other causes, with little recourse.

    Reduced Theft Risk

    While we strongly advocate having some physical silver and gold close at hand in case of a crisis, just like keeping cash at home versus in a bank, there are limits on how much bullion is safe to store at home.

    Take for example this one example report that was widely circulated on the web (original link):

    Man stabbed in robbery of $750,000 in silver bars
    By: Lora Grindlay, Postmedia News - FEBRUARY 17, 2011.

    A man from Chilliwack (near Vancouver, Canada) says he is traumatized after he was punched, stabbed and tied up by home invading thieves who made off with his life savings in silver bars. The two thugs, wearing what he described as fake police uniforms, unloaded a vault and spirited away with $750,000 in silver the man had bought as an investment last year. The 52-year-old victim, still shaking after the robbery on Feb. 9, now wonders who among his friends or acquaintances might have been behind the brazen midday theft. The man, a former professional, wouldn't say how much he had paid for the bullion, although $750,000 in silver bullion was worth about $415,500 this time last year . A bank refused to store the silver, he said, because it was too big . He didn't insure the silver, he said, because the price to do so was astronomical...

    Global Storage Options

    You are in full control of where your metals are stored at all times. Your choices include locations around the world with the most trusted names in metals security.

    We’ve pre-arranged vault options around the globe, so you can ship your purchased metals directly to your choice of one or more vault locations with just a click.

    Straightforward, Transparent, and Fair Pricing

    Private, segregated vault storage, with full-time surveillance, armed guards, and all the controls provided by the industry’s most recognized security providers may sound expensive, even out of reach for the average investor. But, thanks to the scale provided by storing with GoldSilver.com, as one of the largest and most respected precious metals retailers, you can have access to all of that security for far less.

    If you’ve been shopping for vault storage for long, chances are you’ve hard a hard time getting a straight answer on pricing. We don’t do business that way. Our pricing is simple and easy to understand:

    MetalGold (Au)Silver (Ag)
    Current Storage Cost

    (38.5 basis points)
    0.485%
    (48.5 basis points)
    Monthly Minimum

    $35.00

    We put sample fee calculations for varying account sizes in this table to give you an idea of the total cost of storing your metals with us.

    FAR More Bang for Your Buck

    Compare the expensive management fees of some of the most popular gold and silver exchange traded funds (ETFs) to the price of storing physical gold and silver bullion in fully insured, segregated vaults, and you’ll see what a value our storage provides in comparison.

    Plus, when choosing segregated vault storage, you won’t be subject to the common problems associated with most precious metals ETFs, such as the inability to take possession of metals, issues accurately tracking the price when markets move quickly, or complex bank regulations.

    No Complex Fractional Pricing

    Our segregated vault storage services are transparently priced in clear terms... unlike many “allocated” or “digital” vault storage competitors that use complicated fractional gold ounce or silver gram schemes to slowly siphon away investors' safe haven assets. We believe an investor's gold and silver money should remain untouched, ounce for ounce, and vault storage fees should be calculated and billed in depreciating fiat currency -- with convenient credit/debit card auto-billing available as an option.

    Is Storage Right for Me?

    Gold and silver bullion are rare financial assets -- the only forms of money not simultaneously one’s asset and someone else’s debt. Without the risk of becoming worthless like a fiat currency or other debt obligation, the few risks precious metals investors have to think about are various forms of theft, like common theft, government seizure, and trustee fraud.

    We believe gold and silver buyers should always keep a portion of their holdings close at hand, in a safe but easily accessible location. But, never keep all your eggs in one basket. The larger your investment, the more important physical storage diversification becomes.

    The golden rule is to make certain invested bullion is owned outright and unencumbered. To achieve this:

  • Do not hold metals on the books of a company you do not control or in the title of anyone but yourself.
  • Avoid metals that are or can be “hypothecated” by the trustee, i.e. lent out to cover anyone’s debts but your own.
  • Be sure your metals will be there when you need them. Avoid promissory notes and certificates that aren’t third-party insured, or schemes that require the trustee to purchase metals at market when you request delivery.
  • With GoldSilver.com’s segregated storage, accounts are titled in your name, or in the name of an entity you control, assuring direct ownership. Secure, efficient physical delivery is just a few mouse clicks away -- because the same metals you put into storage are the ones that are sent back to you when needed. The entire process is all under the supervision of the world’s top vault providers and third party auditors. And every ounce is fully insured.

    We will automatically create a storage account for you, and keep you updated as your metals are shipped and received by your chosen vault provider. Sellbacks are just as easy. And, of course, call, chat, or email us with any questions you have.
