FAQ's

The SBG Vault is a UL certified vault located within a secure storage facility for coins, paper money and precious metals. In addition to best-in-class secure storage, the SBG Vault provides opportunities for seamless selling through auction or directly to Stack's Bowers Galleries and instant access to liquidity through collateralized loans from SBG Vault partner Collateral Finance Corporation (CFC).

The SBG Vault provides enhanced security that goes beyond standard bank offerings. Additionally, each item stored in the SBG Vault undergoes individual inventorying, accompanied by a professional photograph, and is safeguarded by Stack's Bowers Galleries' comprehensive all-risk insurance policy. In contrast, items housed in bank safety deposit boxes often come with agreements where the renter "assumes all risks" or faces similar restrictive terms tucked away in the fine print. In essence, the SBG Vault not only offers heightened security and protection but also numerous additional benefits compared to traditional bank safety deposit boxes.

See The New York Times article "Safe Deposit Boxes Aren't Safe".
