What is a Precious Metals IRA? 

A precious metals IRA enables an investor to own physical precious metal coins in a self-directed IRS approved retirement program. The Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997 expanded the investment assets allowed in IRAs to include physical precious metals. However, most precious metal numismatic products are not allowed in an IRA due to purity standard requirements. With exception to the American gold Eagle coin, the IRS requires gold coins and bars to be 24 karats in purity. The American gold Eagle coin was minted from 1986 to present. 

What is a Rollover? 

If you have a retirement plan established through an ex-employer, you can transfer the retirement account to a different custodian while maintaining the benefits of a tax deferred account. These are the basic conditions to qualify for a retirement account rollover: 

  • The sponsoring company has changed its retirement program. 
  • The sponsoring company has changed ownership. 
  • The employee is 59 ½ years or older. 
  • The employee is no longer employed by the sponsoring company. 

Rollover Method 

Precious Metal Rollover 

The IRA stipulates only three ways for the completion of a rollover: 

  • Direct Rollover: in this method, your plan administrator directly issues a check to the IRA of your choice. This method assures zero tax withholding from your rollover. 
  • Trustee-to-Trustee Rollover: The trustee of your previous IRA can facilitate a rollover to your current IRA trustee. This method also ensures zero tax withheld. 
  • 60 Day Rollover: A check for your current rollover is issued in your name and there is no tax obligation if you place the retirement funds in another IRA within 60 days.

Why rollover into physical precious metals? 

An precious metals IRA account offers investors the ability to properly diversify, hedge against inflation, and potential for growth when geo-economic uncertainty is in play. Tax advantages, global liquidity, and additional stability are what a precious metal IRA can offer. The primary benefits of precious metals include serving as a hedge against inflation, providing portfolio diversification, offering stability during economic uncertainty, and acting as a store of value over the long term. 

Precious metals have a comparatively low or negative correlation when compared to stocks and paper assets. When the values of other assets decrease, precious metals will likely rise in value and promote portfolio balance and stability.  

Precious metals are not prone to mismanagement or mishandling by corporations or government entities. Precious metals are not subject to government policy changes. For example, when you own a gold Eagle coin, no one can borrow or loan against your gold coin. Physical precious metals are free from the risk associated with debt.  

Unlike a conventional retirement plan, a precious metal IRA gives you the ability to know exactly where your physical asset is stored and located.

How does a precious metal rollover fit into a diversified investment portfolio?
