Free Vaulting

No storage fees when you vault Goldbacks with Alpine Gold

Goldbacks that are stored in your account are exempt from all membership, vaulting, and insurance fees that are typically associated with other types of accounts. You can even get Goldbacks this way when they are sold out everywhere else.

To incentivize Goldback circulation Alpine has priced Goldbacks lower than the average exchange rate posted on This is the most competitive price allowed for Goldbacks. Members of the association may even liquidate their Goldbacks into cash at the zero percent buy/sell spread for up to $10,000 in a 30-day period. This means that if you decide to cash out your vaulted Goldbacks then you will get whatever price they are being sold for that day. There is no spread. 

Preserve more value

Free vaulting is an attractive option for people that are worried about losing the value of their accounts to vaulting fees.
Goldbacks stored in your account can be withdrawn at nearly any time under most circumstances. Members may request to have their Goldbacks mailed to their home address or they may be picked up at any one of our branch locations. (Manchester, NH Provo, Ogden, or Alpine, UT or Sioux Falls, SD).


The Alpine Gold Exchange is able to offer UPMA members such an incredible deal on vaulting for the Goldback in part because it is convenient to have the flexibility of managing the different denominations that are held by the membership vs outer market demand.


It is our hope that by removing the barriers of fees and member dues that new members will be able to enjoy some gold exposure. There are no minimums or maximums. If your primary goal is exposure to the price of gold then it may be worthwhile to consider funding a U.S legal tender gold account in addition to a Goldback account.


It is anticipated that the free Goldback accounts will remain a permanent offering rather than a temporary promotion. They have been this way since August of 2019. By using the free Goldback account UPMA members can even reserve future designs at current prices since each Goldback is interchangeable in any series or any denomination.
