Transfer Assets and Own Gold and Silver Coins
and Bars in the Safest Way
GoldCore's mission statement since 2003 has been to protect and grow the wealth of our clients, and given growing monetary, cyber, and systemic risks, it is increasingly important to take delivery or have legal title and outright ownership of fully segregated coins and bars.
On all investment and pension purchases and gold and/or silver coin and bars transfers (from banks, ETFs, and digital gold providers) worth more than $10,000 stored in GoldCore Secure Storage in Zurich, Switzerland, we are now offering Secure Storage for free for six months and the gift of a silver bullion coin -- a beautiful, legal tender, 1-ounce Silver Eagle.
GoldCore does not report transactions to any authority, and safety, privacy, and confidentiality are paramount when we are entrusted with safekeeping of our clients' precious metals.
Please visit GoldCore here for more information about this offer:

We have a plan to resume modified production in two weeks, which will allow us to reduce the risk to our staff and maintain critical services. We do however anticipate a longer suspension of production and shipping for our numismatic collectable coins as we prioritize the support of trade and commerce.
We are deeply committed to doing everything we can to keep our employees and customers healthy and safe. We will, of course, keep you updated through mint.ca, our social media platforms, and authorized e-mail notifications as more details become available. We thank you for your understanding during these exceptional times.
