    Depends on how large of about it is, I would start out with it in a good safe, then if it got to a large enough amount, it would be in a safe in a safe, then if it got to a ridiculous amount, it would be in a safe, in a bigger safe, in a hidden room beneath the basement.

    Miller. I'm there with you. No one ever searches the yards without reason. Only downside is its there, unprotected and a random in the middle of the night could go get it.

    I still prefer a good safe deposit box in a local bank when you're taking about pounds of gold.

    Is it spendable gold? Is there any spendable gold? Sell it, let someone else worry about it.


    Lying is now the norm. The truth is not only unwelcome, it is offensive.

    I would hire contractors to build two hidden rooms in my basement - cutting through the basement walls. When they were done, I would eliminate them all, bury them in one room, and hide the gold in the other.

    Just kidding of course, I wouldn't bury them on my property, that is silly!

    If you are going to bury gold, don't use metal coffee cans, metal detectors can find those, use plastic coffee cans so no one can find them with a detector!

    how does that saying go? Time for more coffee?

    I would have fake gold ingots/coins made and put them in a safe in my house and then hide the real gold behind a hidden wall!

    you realize you can detect a coffee can full of gold... through a plastic coffee can?

    Raw or processed gold? Bars, coin or jewelry? Legally obtained, found or stolen. You're just a bit vague. You could store all the gold you could carry in a footlocker and it'd probably be safe as long as you kept your mouth shut. If nobody but you knows about it you can store it under your bed. If people know about it you should put it in the bank.
    Good luck.

    Why would I discuss where I hide my gold on an internet forum?
