  • 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.
  • 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

  • Gold Storages undergo significant visual changes at levels 2, 3, 5, 10, 11, 12, and 13.
    • 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.

  • The Gold Storage was in the original release of the game on August 2, 2012, with 10 levels.
  • The October 27, 2012 update added the level 11 Gold Storage.
  • The January 10, 2013 update added the 4th Gold Storage available at Town Hall level 9.
  • In April 17, 2013 update, the percentage loot that can be looted from Gold Storage is decreased. The maximum possible amount of loot remains the same.
  • The December 2013 update reworked the loot system; Town Halls 6 and higher had less percentage available to loot from Gold Storages, but conversely had an increased loot cap (previously all Town Hall levels made 20% of Gold available, up to a maximum of 198,000).
  • In July 1, 2015 update, the Gold Storage no longer takes damage from spells, and increased the HP of level 11 Gold Storage from 2,000 to 2,100.
  • The December 10, 2015 update added the level 12 Gold Storage and reduced the Gold Storage's storage capacity (compensated by increasing the Town Hall's storage capacity). The percentage of loot that could be looted from Gold Storages at Town Halls 6 through 10 were increased by 2%.
  • The March 21, 2016 update gave the Gold Storage more visual states to indicate more clearly how full or empty they are.
  • The June 11, 2018 update added the level 13 Gold Storage.
  • The June 26, 2018 update reduced upgrade times for the Gold Storage at levels 2-12.
    • Level 2, 3 and 4 upgrade times reduced by 50% (with the new build times being 15m, 30m, 1h down from 30m, 1h, 2h respectively).
    • Level 5, 7, 9 and 10 upgrade times reduced by 33% (the new upgrade times being 2h, 4h, 8h, 16h down from 3h, 6h, 12h, 1d respectively).
    • Level 6 upgrade time reduced by 25% (3h down from 4h).
    • Level 8 upgrade time reduced by 38% (5h down from 8h).
    • Level 12 upgrade time reduced by 43% (4d down from 7d).
  • The April 2, 2019 update reduced upgrade times for levels 10-13 Gold Storages and reduced upgrade costs for level 12 and 13 Gold Storage.
  • The December 9, 2019 update added the level 14 Gold Storage and increased storage capacity of level 13 Gold Storage at 500,000. The same update increased the loot cap at TH12 from 450k to 500k.
  • The June 22, 2020 increased the maximum storage capacity at higher levels for returned resources stolen in attacks.
  • The April 12, 2021 update added the level 15 Gold Storage and reduced the upgrade times of level 2 and 3 Gold Storages.


  • During the tutorial, the Goblins state that they love Gold, but they do not prioritize Gold over Elixir or Dark Elixir.
  • Every upgrade up to level 11 approximately doubles the storage capacity.
  • 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.
  • It is possible to overflow the Gold Storage, but only by purchasing special resource packs found in the shop for real money or receiving extra Gold from the Season Bank. 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.
