Bank deposit boxes are not to be trusted.  Maybe small local banks.  Why store all your wealth in one spot?  Several folks also had to know for the thief to head right for the booty.  3 to 4 hidden locations makes sense to me and keep it quiet..............

Well safety deposit boxes in the States have always been safe for numismatic coins. I have two safety deposit boxes and hope they prove safe. I cannot bury them in my back yard as they would degrade. I hope they prove safe but am diversified in other assets to preserve wealth. One does not know what the future holds. I will not sell my American nor my CMC's because I like them #1 and am worried about the eventual strength of the U.S. Dollar. I also own the Yuan and Swiss Franc.

Uhhh... Yeah.
Exchange and I may disagree about OMP vs. Slabbed but at least I share his viewpoints on using a SDB as the choice storage method. Bank storage beats storage in a random garage shoe-box any day.

Amen!  :001_smile:
Storage should be a number one priority, without it you neither have OMP or Slabbed.

UPDATE: The thief appears to have been caught after actually spending $1,000 coins at face value to buy pizza and a movie.

Bullion worth $200,000 stolen from Brisbane home of war veteran

How many more will it take for people to realize gold and silver coins do not belong in a home just like $200,000 in cash does not belong under the matress. So many cases go unreported. This while gold was down 30% last year. What would things look like if gold would of been up 30%!


Bullion worth $200,000 stolen from Brisbane home of war veteran by thieves using wheelie bin.

Gold and silver bullion and coins worth approximately $200,000 has been stolen from a home in Upper Kedron, Brisbane

Thieves entered the home in Ellie Court in Upper Kedron sometime between 6:00pm on New Year's Eve and 3:00am on New Year's Day.

They broke into a safe which contained 80 kilograms of gold and silver bullion and coins and loaded the bullion into a wheelie bin to ferry it to their getaway car.
The bullion's owner, Corporal Christopher Lunt, had saved up the gold and silver from wages paid while he was deployed overseas.
Cpl Lunt, who is still serving in the Australian Army, says he was out of the house celebrating the new year when the robbery occurred.
He says he quickly realised something was wrong upon returning home.

"You could smell the house had bleach all through it," he said.
"We went into our bedroom and the bedroom had been upturned.
"I went to my safe and it had been cracked open."

The Enoggera-based war veteran had spent four months in Afghanistan during 2011 and seven months in Iraq in 2007.
He says he was only days away from putting his gold and silver collection into a safety deposit box.
"I've been investing in gold and silver for the last five years now. I had a bit saved up," Cpl Lunt said.
"It's just gut-wrenching for the first day of the year to come home to that.
"Basically, the life savings is just gone."

Anyone who may have noticed people acting suspiciously or unfamiliar vehicles in Ellie Court are asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
