ANZ Bank’s Queen Street safety deposit vault, guarding treasures for 127 years, is passing the torch to Guardian Vaults on William Street. Before the transition, ANZ Bank generously invites the 4,500 box owners to rediscover their cherished possessions, some untouched for generations.
ANZ Bank Vault
Among the usual heirlooms and gold, fascinating surprises lurk, from a retirement-plan gold nugget to patiently waiting engagement rings and hefty solid-gold cutlery sets. While privacy and security reign, the law occasionally steps in, as seen in a recent $1.3 million cash discovery. In a time of urban security concerns, many opt for Guardian Vaults. The vault’s secrets will continue to unfold at its new home, with select boxes finding a place in the ANZ Banking Museum after a year.
