The Safe is a portable Storage item with 40 slots to store Items, however it has the unique ability (along with the Piggy Bank) to be carried while it contains items. It functions identically to the Piggy Bank, except that it does not require a wooden platform or furniture, as it can also be placed directly on Blocks. It also costs 20 Gold Coins (as compared to the Piggy Bank at 1 Gold coin), and its Inventory is separate from the Piggy Bank's. It can be bought from the Merchant after Skeletron has been defeated.

The Safe (and Piggy Bank) function similarly to other Storage Items, but with some important differences:

  • Each Safe contains the same items (when accessed by the same character), no matter where they are placed within the world. Purchasing multiple Safes will not give you more space, but will offer more points of access to your Safe contents.
  • The Safe can be picked up even when it contains items. This makes it a viable way to expand your character's inventory slots. It can be removed with a Pickaxe to be picked up again.
  • The Safe's contents are saved with your character data, instead of the World data. You keep its contents with you from world to world, and from server to server.
  • The Safe's contents are exclusive to each player, so other players will not have access to items in your Safe. This makes it useful for item security on PvP servers where stealing is allowed.
  • Multiple players can use the same Safes without having access to each others items. Each player will only see their own items when accessing the same Safes.

Moving coins you gather into a Safe (or Piggy Bank) periodically may be useful, especially when exploring hazardous areas. Coins stored there will not be lost in case of death, even if the Safe is in your character's inventory at the time.


  • On mobile, the price is still 50 gold.


Bug.png Bug : The safe cannot be placed on furniture under the ocean without having a wall behind it first.
Bug.png Bug : Console only.png Like the piggy bank, if you put a random number of blocks (such as 1) in it, it will glitch out and think it's the ID - not the block - and you will get that item. For example, 1 block or item shows as an iron pickaxe. In other words, the number of an item you put in it will become the number id and the item id will become the amount; it is sort of like a mirror, id/amount becomes amount/id.


  • Right-clicking to open a chest, Piggy Bank or Safe will no longer pick up an item from the stack where the cursor is.
  • 1.2.3: Piggy Bank and Safe now correctly combine coins when Quick Stacking.
  • 1.2: Reduced cost from 50 Gold Coin to 20 Gold Coin and selling price from 10 Gold Coin to 4 Gold Coin. Storage slots increased to 40 (up from 20).
  • 1.0.6: Introduced.
