Gold Coins in Your IRA

According to the Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997, you can legally add gold bullion coins to your IRA and other retirement accounts. You can also rollover all or part of your existing retirement account, so it's easy to get started right away.

This is great news for collectors and investors, because it provides you with an exciting and proven alternative to standard investments. Being fully invested in stocks and bonds can place your hard-earned money at considerable risk, so you really owe it yourself to consider diversification into gold.

All U.S. bullion coins, which includes American Eagle gold, silver, and platinum bullion coins and American Buffalo gold bullion coins, can be included in your investment portfolio. Also eligible are certain other bullion coins made by government mints and bullion bars made by approved refiners. Bullion bars are a convenient way to secure precious metals in sizes up to 100 ounces or more.

To be eligible for an IRA or other retirement account, the bullion coins and bullion bars must be held by a custodian bank or third-party trustee. If you do not already have an account, Ideal Coin can recommend several high-quality, reliable custodians with impeccable reputations.
