3 Ways to Store Your Precious Metals

Where do you store your Precious Metals? How can you ensure your investment will be safe and secure? What measures are you taking to prevent theft and physical loss?

If you’re new to iStoring Your Investmentnvesting in Precious Metals, the last thing you want is to put that investment in jeopardy. That’s why it’s important to choose the best way to store your Precious Metals. Whether you’ve invested in Gold bullion, Silver bars or Platinum bullion, you should do your best to ensure that it’s stored as safely as possible. Your first major decision when it comes to storing your Precious Metals is whether you want to store them yourself or work with a third party.

Personal Storage at Home

One of the most popular options for Precious Metals storage is a safe in your home. A safe offers security and easy access. Safes can be a thief deterrent because they’re often hard to break into and can be heavy depending on the size. There are some issues to consider. Unless your safe is bolted to the wall or floor, there is a chance that someone could remove it from your home. However, if you need constant access to your metals, a safe is probably your best option.

Thieves rarely enter the kitchen, laundry room or child’s room when robbing a home. If you have a small safe and ample space in the back of a cabinet in your kitchen, that might be one of the safest places in your home to store your investments. The last place you want to store your safe is the master bedroom because it’s the first place people of ill intent will look for valuables. There are also many inexpensive, ingenious items on the market to hide or disguise your valuables.

Safety Deposit Boxes

If you want to store your Precious Metals with a third party, a safety deposit box is one of the most popular options. Safety deposit boxes are usually offered by banks, which tend to have a high level of security. However, there is an additional cost for this, and access is often limited to bank hours, which could be an issue for you.

Professional Storage Solutions                                                                      

One of the safest and most secure options for storing your Precious Metals is through facilities  managed by a security company. Selecting a maximum security storage facility for your Precious Metals can give you peace of mind. If you choose the right company, you reduce the risk of theft, damage to your items or physical loss. Working with a professional storage company will keep your Gold, Platinum and Silver metals in great shape so you can benefit from them later on down the road.

Of course, just one of these options may not be enough. Many find a balance with a mixture of storage options. If you’re looking for a complete solution when it comes to storing your Precious Metals, AMPEX has you covered. Citadel Global Depository Services, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of APMEX, offers maximum security Precious Metal storage that is both convenient and affordable.

The Benefits of Purchasing Precious Metals Online Vs. a Physical Location

455649179Whether you’re a collector, an investor, or a dealer, choosing where to buy gold, platinum, or other precious metals is an important step. When you make the decision to invest your money in something so valuable, you’ll want to make certain you’re conducting a safe transaction that will offer you variety and fair pricing. While you could go to a physical location to shop for precious metals, purchasing coins and bullion online offers many more benefits.

Enjoy Variety

One of the top reasons to purchase precious metals online is you get access to a virtually unlimited supply of coins and bullion. Online retailers often have much more space than most physical stores, and this means more of a selection for you as a buyer. Whether you’re trying to buy silver, platinum, or gold, choosing to work with an online retailer will give you the freedom to choose from a wide range of different options. The larger selection ensures you’ll be able to find high-quality precious metals you’re looking for.

You want to know exactly what you need to spend and whether or not it’s the best price. If you shop a brick-and-mortar store, there’s no guarantee you’re going to get the fairest, up-to-the-minute pricing. When you buy silver, gold, or platinum online, there’s a greater chance you’ll get a better price. Most online precious metal retailers update their prices in real time, which ensures you always get the fairest price.

If, however, you choose to buy platinum, gold, or silver online, you can shop 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You won’t be locked into browsing during normal business hours. Instead, you can browse coins and bullion on your time.
