What is a Precious Metal IRA?

Based on your investment goals and objectives, an Individual Retirement Account (IRA) in precious metals could be an excellent way to hedge against inflation. There are different types of investments your accredited retirement account can hold. If you’re considering a way to protect your retirement account against geo-economic uncertainty, a Precious Metal IRA could be the answer.

While the common investments for an IRA include stocks, mutual funds, and bonds, you may not be aware that a self-directed IRA can offer the investor more control. This allows you to choose your investment. For example, a self-directed IRA allows you to diversify in multiple asset classes, including tangible precious metals.

Since 1975, individuals have been allowed to invest in gold and silver through self-directed IRAs. Also known as a Precious Metal IRA, this self-directed IRA account gives you the ability to own physical precious metals while receiving the benefits of a tax-deferred program.

There are three major benefits to utilizing a self-directed precious metal IRA account.

Tax Benefits:

Smart investors can utilize a self-directed precious metal IRA for maximum tax benefits in accordance with the advice of their financial planner or tax advisor; Orion Metal Exchange does not offer tax advice. However, all the same IRS rules apply to a precious metal IRA as would apply to a traditional paper investment IRA. A precious metal IRA account simply gives you the ability to own tangible precious metals while receiving the tax benefits as specified by the IRS.


With a self-directed precious metal IRA, you can choose the IRA depository, custodian, and the specific IRA-eligible precious metal products you want to own. Our precious metal IRA specialists can help you locate an IRA custodian and an IRS approved depository to best suit your needs. We also offer an extensive list of IRS eligible precious metal products to choose from. We are here to help you every step of the way.


When economic instability hits, precious metals historically increase in value. Precious metals can serve as a hedge against potential investment risk and market volatility. Non-biased financial advisors recommend holding a percentage in tangible precious metals to achieve proper portfolio diversification.

With a precious metals IRA account, you have the added benefit of withdrawing bullion and taking physical possession per IRA distribution rules.

Put simply, opening, owning, and storing physical precious metals in a self-directed IRA is an excellent way to tangibly diversify your portfolio.
