Gold and Silver IRA with AGE

You may have further questions regarding:

  • Which metals are allowed in an IRA
  • The IRA transfer process
  • A 401k rollover
  • What to do if you are changing jobs
  • What makes Advanced Gold Exchange the precious metals broker

…if so, have them answered on the Advanced Gold Exchange gold IRA page.

Gold IRA

A gold IRA is an IRA held at a custodian who offers investments in precious metals, as well as other types of metals (silver is another option).

If you’re unclear on what a custodian is, let me shed a little light on it. Most of the time, an IRA custodian is a bank or brokerage. They’re charged with safeguarding the assets of a client’s IRA. In order to be an IRA custodian, you’ve got to be approved by the IRS.

Talking with a few friends of mine, it’s clear that Americans have slightly different reasons for investing in gold. The first thing I personally look at is gold’s 5000 year history as money. I’ve also given a lot of thought to the 2008 economic crisis, government bailout, and what gold has been doing since then.

Options with AGE

I was talking with a friend the other day and he opened my eyes to something… A lot of Americans have been waiting to see their investments bounce back since 2008, but many people apparently haven’t seen it happen yet.

This makes sense to me. And it’s no surprise that these people are looking at investing in gold.

Approved Precious Metals Products

Under the Internal Revenue Code, there are specific precious metals products allowed.  The purity standard for gold is .999 pure, or 99.9 percent; for silver, .995 or 99.5 per cent pure; for platinum and palladium, .9995 or 99.95 percent pure. The one exception to the purity rule is the American Eagle gold coinage which is .916 net fine. These standards narrow the range of choices.  You can purchase bullion bars or bullion coins for your plan. Bars must be manufactured by exchange-approved refiners. 

Below is a List of Allowable Bullion Coins

Approved gold bullion coins include the U.S. Eagle, the U.S. Buffalo, the Canadian Maple Leaf, the Australian Kangaroo and the Austrian Philharmonic.  These come in various sizes ranging from one troy ounce to one-tenth troy ounce.

Approved silver bullion coins include the U.S. Eagle, the Canadian Maple Leaf, Austrian Philharmonic and Mexican Libertad.

Approved platinum coins include the U.S. Eagle, the Canadian Maple Leaf, the Australian Koala and the Australian Platypus. There is only one approved palladium coin -- the Canadian Maple Leaf.

Proof American Eagles are also allowed but are not advisable in a precious metals’ IRA due to vast premium disparities based on different interpretations of numismatic value. The best course of action is to stick with products from the above list that trade at lower premiums.

Transfers and Rollovers

Transferring a traditional or Roth IRA to a gold backed IRA is relatively simple. Alternatively, the term “rollover” actually refers to the rolling over of assets from a 401 (k) plan or some other qualified retirement plan to a self-directed IRA.  In these cases, an employee must usually be separated from employment in order to establish a rollover.

Including precious metals in your retirement plan is a good idea, but make sure you approach the task under the guidance of a gold firm that has a good reputation and solid experience in this area.  Generally speaking, the guidelines that apply to precious metals ownership outside your IRA also apply to owning the precious metals inside your IRA.

Here’s a quick list I put together for you. If you have these investments you may consider a gold IRA.

  • Certificates of Deposit (CDs)
  • Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs)
  • Money Market Accounts (MMAs)
  • Treasury Inflation Protected Securities (TIPs)
  • Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs)
  • Common Stocks
  • Bonds
  • Mutual Funds
  • Savings Accounts
  • U.S. gold coins, and silver coinsminted by the Treasury Dept.
  • Certain coins (gold, silver, platinum, bullion, and palladium)
