I have cautioned investors for many years not to store gold and silver in safe deposit boxes, now Largest Bank In America Joins War On Cash. I said you may not be able to gain access to your box when you really need it. Now look what the largest bank in the U.S. is doing. Chase even goes as far as to prohibit the storage of cash in its safe deposit boxes. In a letter to its customers dated April 1, 2015 pertaining to its “Updated Safe Deposit Box Lease Agreement,” one of the highlighted items reads: “You agree not to store any cash or coins other than those found to have a collectible value.” Whether or not this pertains to gold and silver coins with no numismatic value is not explained.
