How does the Miles Franklin Private Safe Deposit Box Program work?
The Miles Franklin Private Safe Deposit Box program offers clients the ability to purchase physical gold, platinum or even cash to store in an insured Safe Deposit Box at Brink’s Vancouver or Toronto. This means that your metals are in your box, sealed and you hold the only keys! The metals are stored securely in your own sealed and locked box in the Miles Franklin Vault at Brink’s Vancouver or Toronto. Clients may ship their own existing metals as well for the same storage rate as purchasing from Miles Franklin.

What makes our Private Safe Deposit Box program different from other precious metals storage programs?
Almost all Safety Deposit Boxes are in a bank and tied to a bank account, with no insurance offered or even available.
The difference with our program is that your goods or cash is protected in a safe deposit box with full Insurance and secured by Brink’s Canada in their vaults.
The vaults are located in one of the safest countries in the world, in private facilities not tied in any way to the banking industry. Your metals are locked and sealed in your Safe Deposit Box and cannot be opened or audited without the client sending in the key or physically going to the facility in person. Not all storage programs abroad have the same security, quality of employees, or solid reputations maintained by Miles Franklin and Brink’s Canada.
Segregated storage programs for precious metals offer clients more flexibility to add or withdraw metals, but Safe Deposit Boxes offer peace of mind. The ability for a client to have the only access eliminates the possibility of 3rd party access.
*We are one of the only programs in the world that allows the client to store Cash. Canadian Bank direct cash deposits required, minimum pick up is $10,000 Canadian, U.S or Swiss Dollars. In order to acquire the cash, clients will need to open their own Bank Account through a Canadian Bank. Miles Franklin would be happy to introduce you to a bank account representative. Then Miles Franklin Private Safe Deposit Boxes will coordinate with Brink’s Vancouver or Toronto to have your currency picked up on your behalf. Brink’s nor our company may accept cash from you to fund this transaction due to U.S & Canadian Banking Laws.
Importance of liquidity:
In order to sell your precious metals, you only need to make a phone call to begin the process. Being paid promptly and efficiency is one of the most important factors in any investment. If you store precious metals in your own possession, they are less liquid as they must be shipped or brought somewhere to sell. This has counter party risk shipping and also offers no insurance in your possession or at a bank safe deposit box. For these reasons alone, our program offers a safer and more fungible option than held in your own possession.
Insurance and Protection.
All Precious Metals and Currency are insured and an insurance policy naming the Miles Franklin storage program in Vancouver or Toronto, a copy is available to download on our website. Client holdings are not an asset of Miles Franklin Precious Metal storage and accordingly, cannot be subject to the claims of any creditor of Miles Franklin Precious Metals Storage or its subsidiaries. Client holdings are considered managed assets of clients, and are in no way listed “on the books” or as an asset of Miles Franklin Precious Metal Storage or its subsidiaries.
