5 of the World's Most Secure Safes


Across the globe, immense riches are protected in some select safes that feature (likely) impenetrable security. National gold reserves are protected with particular intensity. For your own valuables to remain secure, it's worth investing in a home safe. At Copperstate Lock & Security, our crew of home security experts can help you select the best safe for your situation. Here are five of the world's most secure safes.

Fort Knox

A large amount of U.S. gold reserves are housed at Fort Knox. The military guards the roughly 500 tons of gold bullion that is stored at this site. In all likelihood, you wouldn't be able to get past the guards to get anywhere close to the safe. But if somehow you did, you'd then encounter a safe that features 750 tons of steel, as well as granite walls that are four feet thick.

Federal Reserve Bank of New York

More than $270 billion in gold bullion is stored at New York's Federal Reserve Bank. The loot is housed 80 feet below ground, behind a 90-ton steel door, and protected by a top-of-the-line security team.

Bank of England Gold Vault

The U.K.'s largest store of gold is protected by a bombproof door and a highly-advanced voice recognition system. As another security measure, the Bank hasn't provided much in the way of details about its vault, but it is known to house well over 5,000 tons of gold.

Svalbard Global Seed Vault

The remote Svalbard archipelago is located between mainland Norway and the North Pole. In the Svalbard Global Seed Vault, seeds for over 500,000 plants are stored. This could prove to be a critical food source if a worldwide catastrophe occurs. The safe is at a depth that protects it from nuclear attack.

Granite Mountain

This is where the Mormon Church keeps its vaunted genealogical library. It is from these records that sites such as Ancestry.com gather their information. This library is secured by a door that can withstand nuclear attack. Armed guards are also present.
