Now you can buy physical gold securely stored with Money Metals Depository without the markup of minted bullion products. You can avoid the cost, hassle, and delay associated with having your gold shipped. And you get the ultimate in security for your gold by storing in Class 3 state-of-the-art vaults.
400 ounce and kilo gold bars generally offer the lowest cost. The challenge is in making them genuinely available to clients — not via phony paper derivatives which purport to represent gold.
The trouble is that 400 oz bar weigh almost 30 lbs making them expensive to ship, and hard to handle. Later, when it is time to sell, bars which have left the vault system must be melted and re-assayed. This means significant additional cost and delay. Low-cost exchange-sized bars only work well for investors when they remain in an LBMA approved depository.
The solution is Vault Gold.
How do we do it? By providing clients with direct ownership of an allocated fractional interest in exchange-sized (400 oz) gold bars (or other sized .9999 gold bullion items if ever available at lower premiums) and storing it securely in the custody of Money Metals Depository.
Why do we do it? There really is just one reason. Clients want it.
- Fabricated coins, rounds and smaller bars are often in short supply, particularly during periods of turmoil and high demand. gold is either unavailable, or premiums go sky-high, just when investors need gold most.
- Clients worry about security and the difficulty of handling gold at home — especially when it comes to large holdings.
- Customers prefer to avoid the cost, hassle, and delay associated with shipping gold — particularly when it is time for them to sell some of their holding.
- We also have a few clients who want to trade gold. They don’t want to trade paper with crooked Wall Street bankers, in the COMEX’s rigged and highly leveraged casino. They want the security and trust associated with physical metal, securely stored by someone they can trust, outside and away from Wall Street and the rickety financial system. But they need an option with a low bid/ask spread.
Vault Gold is low-cost — like an ETF. However, unlike an ETF, Vault Gold owners know they own actual physical gold. Vault Gold is simple and transparent — the very opposite of paper gold derivatives such as futures contracts or ETFs. Clients can receive a list of serial numbers of Vault Gold bars stored for our depository customers and details on other bullion holdings. We guarantee every ounce our clients own is securely stored and available to liquidate at market rates without encumbrances.
