Money Box discuss safety deposit boxes and banks. Basically, most banks don't want to know and have been asking their customers to move to more expensive third-party providers. Asian communities who traditionally hold gold in the family are being targeted by burglars with metal detectors.

Pin point detectors are the type needed for searching in houses. I recommend stashing in places within the house that is masked by other structural metal.
Bankers may well have acted as if they’ve been sitting in the casino during the boom years. But it was a state-owned casino, with governments as the croupiers, and central bankers behind the bar giving out free booze.

Yeah it will pin point that big lump of metal with a lock on it known as a safe.

A safe is fine. Never, ever, use a safety deposit box, particularly in a country where some of the Police are utterly corrupt - like this one;

http://www.darkgover...-london-police/

and

http://www.vantisplc...epositboxes.htm

(This is the story about the police confiscating 3600 safety-deposit boxes in London and then drilling/cutting them open; of these, only 1800 had contents which are likely to lead to prosecutions. The HMRC then rifled through the results, with a view to conducting a "fishing expedition" for tax investigation purposes).
