I’ve been buying bullion for over 15 years now. In that time, I’ve introduced thousands, — nay, tens of thousands — of people to the benefits of owning precious metals.
My tenure in this space, means I’ve heard all the questions. And anyone new to bullion will always first ask ‘what kind of precious metals do I buy?’…which is quickly followed with ‘but where do I keep them?’.
Once people have precious metals in their hot little hands, storage for these hunks of rare metals stump them. What on earth is a person meant to do them?
When it comes to storage, you have several options…but first a cautionary tale.
You may be tempted to keep bullion at home. In fact, there’s a large range of web pages that come up with ideas on how to hide gold. I understand the desire to keep your precious metals close. But storing it at home is highly risky. Simply put, you can’t insure gold stored at home.
