Storage – What’s the difference between segregated & non-segregated storage?

Delaware Depository stores bullion on behalf of its customers and does not lend or lease metal.  All bullion is fully allocated.

Non-segregated storage (comingled) – physical bullion is allocated on our system and physically separated by product.  Customers who own a product such as 1-oz. Gold American Eagles will have their 1-oz. Gold American Eagles stored with other customers’ 1-oz. Gold American Eagles.  Non-segregated storage is the preferred choice for fungible products.

Segregated storage – physical metal is allocated on our system and physically separated by customer.  Customers who choose segregated storage receive their own container where the metal is separate and apart from all other metal.  The exact material deposited is returned upon withdrawal.  Segregated storage is a common choice for special year, specific brand, numismatic coins or sentimental products.
