The secure vault is located at 45 New Bridge Road, Singapore, it is equipped with surveillance cameras, motion detectors and seismographic vibration detectors.

Nobel prize winner Friedrich August von Hayek in his book The Denationalization of Money in 1976 advocated the establishment of competitively issued private moneys and Golden Currency project is the practical implementation of Hayek ideas.
