In order to store bullion at home, you will need to ensure that you have the relevant insurance, as well as a high security storage system. If you would rather not store your bullion at home, we have a range of other options available to you.
If you would like to purchase gold bullion, silver bullion, platinum bars or palladium bars but would prefer not to store it yourself, we can store it for you for free* in our fully secured vault at the Sheffield Assay Office. This option may be preferable for investors who do not have a safe at home, do not have access to a safe deposit box or would rather not have their bullion delivered. It is a completely secure and fully insured way of keeping your bullion safe until you wish to sell.
When you choose this option, your bullion will be sent to a vault at the Sheffield Assay Office, and you will receive a certificate of ownership that gives you complete legal entitlement to the gold or silver that you have purchased. Our vaults are fully secured and audited by Grant Thornton, one of the world’s largest financial consulting firms. If you have any questions or queries regarding our storage options, please do not hesitate to contact us.
*We provide storage in the facility of your choice for up to six months from the date of purchase. Should you choose to continue with storage, you must make arrangements with the facility before the six month agreement from the start of purchase ends. London Gold Bullion will not be held responsible for the item(s) after this time or incur any storage charges after the agreed date. We will provide free insured delivery to your home address upon the storage agreement ending. London Gold Bullion will not be held responsible for the item(s) once they have been delivered.
Please note:The end date of the six month agreement will be emailed to you within five working days of the item being stored. We will notify you 30 days prior to the six-month agreement ending so you can make arrangements of your item(s). If after five working days after the six month agreement arrangements haven’t been made for delivery or continued storage, the item(s) will be sent back to London Gold Bullion head office.
The Sheffield Assay Office has been in business for over 240 years, and is one of only four approved assay offices in the UK. Established by an Act of Parliament in 1773, the assay office assesses the precious metal content of items and uses expert craftsmanship to hallmark them appropriately. A variety of precious metals are stored at the assay office in high security vaults, and the highest precautions are taken to ensure the safety of all items.
