Collective Storage and Retrieval Options

Collective storage - for your peace of mind

Your gold is stored collectively in the vaults of Münze Österreich. As such, no differentiation will be made regarding the year of issue of each gold product.

On retrieval, you are entitled to receive your gold in the form (coins or bars) and units you require.

Your gold is insured. When the annual financial statement is drawn up, an independent auditor verifies all gold deposits. The audit report can be downloaded from your customer account.
