About Us

Guardian Vaults

Guardian Vaults is Australia’s largest privately owned safe custody facility, independent of the banking system, and operates state-of-the-art secure facilities in both Sydney and Melbourne.

Proudly Australian-owned and operated for over two decades, Guardian Vaults has been the leading provider of safe deposit boxes and allocated bullion storage and remains Australia’s first choice. Since opening, Guardian Vaults has expanded to three sites across Australia, with a total storage capacity of over 900 metric tonnes.

Our facilities can handle any investors’ needs for physical bullion storage, with various sizes starting at a 20-kilogram capacity, up to strong individual rooms with over 5,000-kilogram capacity. Across all sites in Melbourne and Sydney, Guardian has over 20,000 individual safe deposit boxes and safes, with an extensive range of sizes to suit all your bullion storage needs.

In recent years, Australian banks have made the decision to exit the bank safe deposit box business and shifted their customers to Guardian Vaults facilties.

National Australia Bank (NAB) decided to transfer management of its safe deposit box facility at 271 Collins Street in Melbourne to Guardian Vaults in 2022 and ANZ on Queen street in Melbourne closed it’s doors, moving their safe deposit box customers to Guardian Vaults William street facility in 2017.


Guardian Gold

Guardian Gold is the bullion trading division within our Melbourne and Sydney Guardian Vaults facilities. Guardian Gold is an authorized distributor of both The Perth Mint and the Royal Australian Mint in Canberra. We provide a seamless solution for buying, storing, and selling precious metals within Australia’s safest and most secure locations.

Guardian Gold also buyback gold and silver from investors of other hallmarks, and our offices are open for bullion consultations during business hours for those looking to transact in person. Our philosophy has always been that if you invest in precious metals, nothing beats the physical product. Many other bullion products in the market carry third-party credit risks that investors may not fully understand. We only provide the safest option for allocated bullion investment and storage so that you can feel at ease throughout the investment process.

If you are looking to buy silver or gold products that you don’t see online, feel free to give us a call, and we can try to source them for you.
