About The IDS group

After successfully operating a global wholesale metals company since 1976, Dillon Gage opened its first precious metals depository in 2010 – Diamond State Depository (now known as IDS of Delaware) in New Castle, Delaware, just outside of Wilmington, Delaware. Soon to follow, IDS of Canada opened. IDS of Canada is located in Mississauga, Ontario, just outside of Toronto. This same year, the International Depository Services Group began. To meet the growing demand for a full-service precious metals depository in the south, International Depository Services Group expanded to three depositories with the opening of IDS of Texas in Dallas. The IDS Group safe keeps physical gold, silver, platinum and palladium products, as well as rare and certified coins. IDS of Delaware and IDS of Texas are also respected storage solutions for physical metals held in self-directed IRAs for many IRA custodians, while IDS of Canada is the respectable storage solution for their Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RSP) custodians.


As one of the most respected precious metals companies globally, Dillon Gage’s International Depository Services Group prides itself in its numerous elite national and international precious metals accreditations and memberships.
