BullionVault is a peer-to-peer internet exchange platform for gold bullion bars (99.5% or higher purity) and silver bullion bars (99.9% or better) that connects private buyers and sellers from all over the world. These individuals buy/sell gold and silver bullion bars (and parts of them) directly from/to one another on the BullionVault site, for which BullionVault charges a commission. Buyers who choose to take physical possession of their bullion bars incur a withdrawal fee. However, most of the individuals who trade at the BullionVault site choose to hold their purchased bullion at a secure storage vault (for an annual storage fee). These are managed by Via Mat and Brink's in Zurich, London, New York, Toronto and Singapore. Customers can spread out their bullion assets across these storage vaults.

BullionVault is a registered corporation in Great Britain that is headquartered in London. Its American office is located on Madison Avenue in New York City. The gold dealer BullionVault is part-owned by the World Gold Council, the market-development organization for the gold industry.



BullionVault charges its customers a commission for dealing on its website plus a monthly storage fee (if the bullion is stored in a vault).

Opening an account with BullionVault is free and takes less than a minute. Customers can then transfer funds to their BullionVault Client Money trust account immediately. Proof of identity is required within two weeks after registering. The gold and silver that is for sale is physically located in a secure storage vault. Upon making a bullion purchase from one of the sellers, the bullion will change ownership and the seller will be paid immediately out of the buyer's BullionVault Client Money trust account.



Customers transfer funds to their BullionVault Client Money trust account directly from their bank account. Other forms of payment such as credit cards, PayPal etc. cannot be used to deposit funds. Once the payment has cleared, customers can use the deposited funds to purchase their gold or silver bullion.

Shipping/Withdrawing of Bullion Bars

A withdrawal of standard 100g gold bars can be initiated directly from the customer's online BullionVault account. Investors with large holdings need to contact BullionVault to request the withdrawal of entire Good Delivery bars of gold (400 troy oz, about 12 kg). Small bullion bars (50 grams minimum withdrawal) can also be requested to be withdrawn. All bullion withdrawals are subject to withdrawal fees.
