    Bank Deposit Safe for Sale in Switzerland

    Posted on December 5th, 2013 by Joe G

    Did you ever watch the cartoon with a billionaire duck who dives into an enormous pile of coins and wish you could do that someday?

    Your wish could come true if you want to spend your entire fortune on a bank deposit safe for sale in Basel, Switzerland. The steel and brass safe was built in 1912, complete with 1619 safe deposit boxes.

    The added bonus? Eight million Swiss five-cent coins weighing in at 15 tons. The safe is the original from the former “Schweizer Volksbank,” or People’s Bank, and is one of the finest pieces of Swiss craft work of the early 2oth Century.

    Looking for a place to store your prized possessions and swim in a pile of coins? This safe, still usable, could be yours! If and when someone purchases it, the entire room and its contents can be moved anywhere in the world.

    Customer Testimonial

    Had a Great Experience

    I have dealt in coins and metals since the 80s. Had dealings with many dealers. Got scammed by a few. Chicago Gold is the only one I would recommend to my family or friends. Have your valuables appraised by them before you sell.

    I'll be back

    Cashed in some silver coins and received a very fair exchange. Joe and Chris, were very friendly, and comfortable to deal with. Came back with some jewelry, and received a rough appraisal...again no pressure.

    I would do business with them again

    I found the Chicago Gold Gallery to be a very honest and reputable shop. I would highly recommend this store to anyone buying and selling their possessions.
