In reality, there are only three ways to store your gold: keeping it at home, using a bank's safe, or paying an outside storage company. Secret storage is the simplest and least expensive method of storing gold or silver. This storage method is ideal for customers who own small or medium-sized collections of precious metals. Just find a safe place to hide in your home or on your property and store your valuables.

This prevents others from knowing their whereabouts and, at the same time, provides their owners with easy accessibility. Common practices for hiding precious metals include hiding them in a hollow book or burying them in the garden.
