  • The Gold Storage allows players to save hard-earned Gold so that it can be used for future upgrades.
  • Gold Storages are still fully functional while being upgraded.
  • It is one of the most protected buildings in-game, due to its capability to store large quantities of Gold.
  • Upgrading your Gold Storage to a higher level than you require for storage purposes can potentially save Gold in a raid. As an attacker receives an amount of Gold proportional to the percentage of damage each hit causes, the higher health of the upgraded building results in less Gold per hit. It also takes longer to destroy, giving you more time for your defenses to destroy the attacker before they can steal all the available Gold.
  • The Gold Storage is the counterpart of the Elixir Storage and vice versa.
  • Although it stores Gold, it is upgraded with Elixir and its Elixir Counterpart is upgraded with gold. This is the same for collectors/drills of various types, with Dark Elixir Buildings being upgraded with Elixir also.
  • As of the July 2015 update, all kinds of Storages are now immune against Lightning Spells (Earthquake Spells were added in this update).
  • Keep in mind, if your Gold Storage is full, you won't be able to store any more gold in it until it is upgraded or gold is used. However, there are 2 exceptions to this rule: when you buy Gold from a pack in the store or when you collect gold from the Season Bank.

Upgrade Differences

  • The Gold Storage undergoes significant visual changes at levels 2, 3, 5, 10, 11, 12, 13, and 17.
  • When initially constructed, the Gold Storage consists of a square open-top wooden repository with raised wooden corners. It is reinforced around the base by a single steel band with small brass rivets.
    • At level 2, the Storage grows slightly taller, adding a pair of small steps on one side and a steel door on the other. A second steel reinforcing band appears as well.
    • At level 3, the Storage grows taller and adds a third steel reinforcing band. The two small steps are replaced with a short stepladder.
    • At level 4, it is slightly taller still with a fourth steel band and a taller stepladder.
    • At level 5, the four steel bands are replaced with a solid metal base (although the top is still made of wood). Armor plating appears at the base of the four corners of the structure. The stepladder is replaced by steel rungs, and a padlock appears on the steel door.
    • At level 6, the Storage grows taller again, and a new steel band appears above the metal base.
    • At level 7, it receives additional reinforcement on the four corners.
    • At level 8, it grows taller once again, the armor plating on the corners receives metal spikes and the steel band moves slightly upwards
    • At level 9, the Storage grows in height again, receiving a second steel reinforcing band above the metal base. The armor plating on the corners grows wider with additional spikes.
    • At level 10, all the remaining wood is replaced by metal. The flat sides of the Storage receive spiked brass armor plating, while the corners retain their spiked steel reinforcements, though these now extend the length of the structure. The gray metal padlock on the door is replaced by a pair of brass padlocks.
    • At level 11, the top halves of the corner reinforcements are replaced with spiked brass armor, and the four corners receive huge vertical golden spikes.
    • At level 12, it gains a large stone base with steps leading to the ladder, the vertical spikes are replaced by golden pillars, and the two padlocks are replaced by a brass vault.
    • At level 13, most of the spikes are removed and replaced by a few large spikes. The reinforcements on the bottom become a light gray solid rock with two large spikes protruding from them.
    • At level 14, most of the spikes are removed again. The top and bottom are replaced by dark blue metal armor. The reinforcements on the bottom are also dark blue and have two small blue spikes each.
    • At level 15, the top of the storage widens up a bit, with gold plating on it. It gains new metal-like dark gray coloured pads on the top corners. The stairs leading to the top gain more shine. It loses the blue spikes. The lock gains a pure golden color, and gets larger. The corner supports now lose the large dark blue upports and gain huge dark grey metal supports with gold linings on it. The inner lining of the storage seems to have a green layer of metal.
    • At level 16, the top and bottom corners are colored with shades of dark purple with gold frames in between. The stairs leading to the ladder are also colored purple. The inner lining of the storage also has a purple layer. The keyhole in the lock changes shape to that of an upside down triangle like the one found on Town Hall 15.
    • At level 17, the top corners turn entirely gold, while the bottom corners turn to stone, with each corner having spikes. The stars leading to the ladder and door are now made of stone. The inner linings are now painted red, and curling branches with leaves are present. The padlock is now a vault door, replacing the lock with a triangular symbol. Its keyhole also becomes much larger.

  • Every upgrade up to level 11 approximately doubles the storage capacity.
  • The description says "don't let sneaky goblins anywhere near!". This corresponds the name of a Super Troop, the Sneaky Goblin.
  • Oddly, when the storage is near empty, there is a single Gold coin that appears to be floating halfway up the storage. This is more noticeable with every increase in level.

If this is done, any excess Gold will remain in the storage, and until the excess is removed (either by spending the Gold or being raided), any Gold earned from raids will be lost, just as if the Gold Storage was full.
