Any recommendations for a Swiss bank? The bank should have customer service in English and preferably have a branch in Zürich. International banks like Credit Suisse or UBS are less optimal, I think. The amounts stored will be in scale of tens or hundreds of thousands of euros. Should the account be denominated in CHF or EUR? CHF seems more stable lately.

because santa claus has a fat stack of coins and doesn't want his girlfriend or his local financial regulators to know about it.

I've heard the banques cantonales are good, they don't have branches in other countries AFAIK.

If you don't want an international bank, go with the Zurich Kantonal Bank. I am pretty satisfied with them. Their customer service is not as good as UBS but they are a little cheaper.

What makes you so sure about that ?

Singapore also sounds like a nice place to hide money

Zürich Kantonalbank requires a 100,000 CHF initial deposit from foreigners, so I'll need to polish my coins a bit longer or contact another bank. Singapore seems interesting too.

Even if there was something illegal, they'd need a criminal investigation and some clue that made them contact Swiss authorities.

Perhaps I should have been more specific…  I assume that I can deposit and withdraw silver whatever citizenship I have, but won't it be a tad complicated (or expensive) if I'm not physically in the US?

I believe shipping would be expensive, yes. It seems to be US-based. : (

Yes, this person is not a swiss citizen, and doesn't work in switzerland either.

Caymens, Swiss Banks, Jersey all those former private banking areas signed up to Obama's AML demands and will hand over info to the IRS and any other countries tax authorities now

You have to create an offshore corp in the Seychelles or somewhere else with no tax reporting requirements and then use it to open a swiss trust account to hide from the tax man in 2011 (though they are catching on to the fake trust accounts now). If you have an offshore bank account, better never use the ATM card it comes with to directly withdraw in your country they trace cards to the sources http://www.tax-news.com/news/Netherlands_Targets_Black_Credit_Card_Payments____43764.html

Instead you have to get a reloadable no-name ATM card, fund it with a transfer from your bank then use the throwaway card to withdraw so your name and account # doesn't show up on every ATM withdrawal
