    No info available on HW, Inc. site regarding insurance costs or rates. To get a price, you’ll have to bear your soul via their application form…what you have and where you have it. That’s not going to happen for a lot of people…

    • CoinWeek says:

      Certainly understand the privacy conerns, but it would seem impossible to provide a quote for insurance without knowing what the risk actually is ( ie…. specifics on the coins, where they are stored, security measures, etc) Perhaps best to just give them a call.
