Located within the protected home of The Royal Mint

The Vault™ is The Royal Mint’s purpose built precious metal storage facility set in The Royal Mint’s 35 acre site, the same site that is trusted by Royalty and Government to accommodate the production of Royal Mint Bullion, the coins of the United Kingdom and those for 60 countries worldwide.

The Vault™ combines over 1,000 years of experience in safeguarding the nation’s coinage with state-of-the-art security systems and protocols. The Vault™ was built to Federal Standard 832 Class A in 1986 and is guarded by trained security staff who are onsite 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

The site is located in South Wales, close to Cardiff Airport, with direct access to the M4 providing excellent links to other major locations and cities.

The reassurance of independence

The Vault™ is a privately held company where Her Majesty’s Treasury is the sole shareholder. This means that you can be assured of independence and impartiality, while enjoying the benefits of our excellent sovereign credit rating - a status that only sovereign entities can boast, with no counterparty risk.

A comprehensive service

The Vault™ has capacity for both Bullion coin and bar storage on a fully allocated, segregated storage basis with a Certificate of Allocation. Your precious metals are independently audited and fully insured. Our transparent storage rates are calculated based on the daily price fixings published by the LBMA and account statements are issued quarterly, charged in arrears.

By purchasing Bullion direct from www.royalmintbullion.com and storing it in The Vault™, you can benefit from our Buy Back Facility and rest assured that your physical Bullion will be held securely - outside of the banking and London Clearing System - and can be liquidated at your request at any time. We also provide a solution for customers wishing to store LBMA Good Delivery Bars, on a securely stored and segregated basis, ensuring your bars are easily identifiable and retrievable.
