    Types of Storage

      Segregated
  • Costs significantly more
  • Your metals are physically held separately from any other metals
    • Allocated
  • Cheaper
  • Your individual metals are still tracked and reported

  • Allocated or segregated storage only applies to gold bars 10 oz, or greater. Both types ensure that the bars are tracked separate from the other metals in the depository's vault. Bars are identified by size, refinery and serial number (for example: 100 oz PAMP Swiss gold bar SN#35427681). When the metal is distributed from the depository, it will be the exact same bar that was originally deposited.
