10 Inventive Hiding Places To Store Your Gold, Silver & Valuables

A common question amongst gold and silver buyers is how to keep them safe once you own them?

We reckon if you buy gold or silver as “financial insurance” you should take delivery of it personally.

So where do you store gold and silver to keep it safe?

First up you could consider a home safe.

See this article for all the things you need to consider before going ahead with this: Buying a Home Safe for Gold Silver Storage. It is definitely not as simple as just buying one of those little lock boxes from the hardware stores.

Private (Non Bank) Vaults are also an option.

There are a number of these across New Zealand. These too have their pro’s and cons. If you’d like more information on Vaults in New Zealand, get in touch with us, let us know your location and we can point you in the right direction.

Inventive hiding places around your home are another option.

While it’s a good idea to have some gold and silver at home in case you need some “instant cash” one day, it’s definitely not a good idea to advertise the fact.

Any hiding place also needs to be somewhere that would be thieves simply won’t consider looking. So here’s a bunch of hiding places to consider. Some are quite small so might suit the compactness of a gold coin, bar or ingot, more than a 1kg bar of silver.

The gap between the upper cabinets in your kitchen might not fit gold or silver bar but you could fit a coin in an envelope and then tape it to it.

7. Underneath the Fridge
