Precious Metal Dealers

gold-bars The overwhelming majority of first-time buyers do not have their gold bullion/coin purchases sent to a depository.

For your clients purchasing gold, silver, platinum or other precious metals, there is now finally a compelling alternative to depository storage:

SDBIC allows for local, segregated and secure storage where clients can actually see, touch, and validate their inventory and purchases; and most important, SDBIC also allows your customers to obtain individual insurance coverage on their investments that is issued in their name and for the exact value of their purchases.

Store it and Insure it: Simply store precious metal purchases in a safe deposit box at a local bank or credit union, or at one of SDBIC’s growing network of SecurePlus accredited private vault facilities, and then insure it through SDBIC. The combined cost is significantly less–and coverage protection is greater–than that a depository.

SDBIC’s coverage offered in partnership with AXA ART, the only art and collectibles insurance specialist in the world, with unrivaled knowledge and expertise in the use, display and storage of high-value collectibles. AXA Art Americas Corporation products in the U.S. are underwritten by AXA Insurance Company. Read more here.

The sign-up process takes 5 minutes, with privacy and confidentiality maintained throughout. In fact, no disclosures or appraisals of the box/vault contents are required to obtain coverage. And no deductibles are paid upon loss.

Customer & Partner Testimonial

  • “Despite common misperceptions, items kept in safe deposit boxes are not insured by the bank or FDIC. We are encouraged that many banks across the country have begun offering this kind of insurance as an enhancement to their current safe deposit box services.”

    Deanne Marino, Executive Director, American Banking Insurance Association (ABIA)

  • “That heirloom jewelry, those high-value baseball cards stored in a safe-deposit box–you think they’re insured from mishap? Unlike bank deposits, they’re not…”

    AARP Bulletin, September 2015

  • “The designed unknown makes the product unique. Typically an insurer goes to great lengths to gather information before assuming any risk, but the lack of knowledge on the part of SDBIC is a strength in this case.”

    Value Penguin, March 2015

  • “SDBIC literally identified and provided a solution for an insurance gap of which many consumers–including sophisticated collectors–are not yet aware. We believe it to be a superb solution for all situations that which require safe deposit box storage usage.”

    Robert H. Pittinger, SVP & Director of Underwriting, AXA ART Americas Corporation

  • “I have been searching for a good insurance policy to protect my gold; it is exactly the type of coverage I had been looking for.”

    Thomas C., Butte MT

  • “I put my jewelry in a box at the bank, and saved hundreds a year by getting a SDBIC policy.”
