IRA-approved precious metals

Approved Precious Metals Products for Retirement Accounts

Eligible Precious Metals

The IRS approves select eligible precious metals and other forms of bullion for IRAs. Recommended precious metals coins and bars are refined by established global mints such as the US Treasury. There is also more advantages to IRA investors holding gold coins as opposed to gold bars in a Precious Metals IRA regarding liquidation. Gold bars are harder to sell due to their higher price and easier ability to be counterfeited, as well as being harder to deliver due to their heaviness and the amount of security required during transport.

We currently have the largest selection of approved IRS precious metals. If you have more question feel free to call us at 800-200-GOLD and speak to a Precious Metals IRA expert for advice or additional resources.
