Your gold isn’t always safe

in bank vaults

When it comes to Gold Bullion, where you store it really does matter. For some people, the primary choice for gold or bullion storage is banks. However, financial events worldwide continue to show that your gold isn’t always safe in bank vaults.

Security Issues Attributed to Bank Vaults

Recent financial events in different countries are demonstrating just how unstable the banking system is and how governments don’t always have the public’s best interests when economic turmoil arises. 

In the United States, for example, the government has reportedly seized more than $32 billion worth of unclaimed property in banks including uncashed dividend checks and safe deposit boxes to supposedly safe keep them. However, it has been revealed that not all of these properties are not unclaimed. This resulted in a Class Action Lawsuit against the state of California in 2008. 

Let’s not forget bail-in legislation that is currently in effect in various countries in Europe, America and North America and Australia! which practically gives banks free rein on how much to confiscate from their depositors in times of financial crisis. The European Union has declared that all deposit amounts above  €100,000 can be reasonably confiscated. 

Meanwhile, when the Greek economy collapsed in 2015, many depositors have found that they have not only lost their jobs, homes, and livelihoods but also the ability to withdraw funds from their banks as directed by the government. This has happened in Cyprus as well and there’s no telling how bad things will be should the same economic downturn happen in Australia.
