About your question. It’s a good idea to have a “visible” safe, and a second, smaller one hidden. I saw this in an apartment I once had and I think it’s a terrific idea.
If you even get caught, you can open and give up the contents of your “safe”, no one will imagine you have a second one hidden.
These safes go into the ground or inside walls, preferably placed inside masonry walls when the structure is being built.
In the floor under the carpet is also a good idea. This is where I’d keep my PM stash and paper money, plus a few other “essentials”.
A small fireproof safe would do.
You mention people in Cambodia sewing gold into the straps of their backpacks. Nice, but backpacks are often stolen.
SAS agents during WWII had another method, they had a compartment that was hidden inside the shoe, a strap of leather with several small gold coins. This went inside the shoe under the padding sole.
