Start Your Gold IRA
Open Your Custodian Account
The IRS requires you to keep your IRA-approved precious metals in a custodian account. Set up a self-directed IRA through a trusted custodian to begin.
Fund Your Custodian Account
Add funds to your account manually or set up a rollover from an existing IRA or 401k. This will allow you to begin your official IRA purchases.
Purchase IRA-approved Precious Metals
After funding your account, all that’s left is purchasing from a list of IRA-approved gold, silver, platinum, or palladium. IRA-Approved products can be found below.
Preferred Gold IRA Custodians
IRA Custodians are required by the IRS for maintaining, assisting, and safeguarding your precious metals. Since they’ll be managing your physical assets, it’s important to pick a gold custodian you trust. You can work with any trust company you want. We primarily work with the following custodians:

Questions About Our Gold IRA Program
What Types of Gold IRAs Exist?
Just like other IRAs, you can choose a traditional IRA or a Roth IRA. The primary difference between the two relates to taxes. A traditional IRA is tax-deferred with gains being taxes upon withdrawal, while a Roth IRA allows you to set aside after-tax income each year.

What is the difference between IRA Approved gold and non-approved gold?
Each precious metal has a minimum fineness standard that is set by the IRS. Gold, silver, platinum, and palladium bullion vary in purity, and actual metal content is an important regulation to ensure you’re actually investing in the precious metal.
Gold IRA Requirements: Gold must be at least .995 purity, with the exception of the American Gold Eagle which is 24 karat (.9167).
Silver IRA Requirements: Silver must be at least .999 purity.
Platinum & Palladium IRA Requirements: Platinum and palladium must be at least .9995 purity.
Why do you recommend a gold IRA?
There are a number of reasons to invest in a precious metals IRA, most notably consistent growth opportunity and tax benefits.
Precious metals are considered a safe investment even in the case of an economic collapse, as there’s a finite supply and consistent demand, making it inflation-proof.
Depending on the type of IRA you choose, you’ll be saving taxes either now or in the future. You’d be able to lower your current tax bracket thanks to tax-deductible contributions, take early withdrawals without penalty, or get tax free withdrawals with a Roth IRA.
Your investment is safely stored and managed by a custodian, providing you with expert-level protection and financial gain.
What Types of IRAs are eligible for a rollover?
All IRAs are eligible for rollover or transfer. This process is handled by your IRA custodian, and they should have additional information for you. Rollovers can take up to a couple weeks.
If I invest with a Gold IRA, do I still receive the physical gold?
No, the IRS requires that we send your gold or other precious metal directly to your IRA custodian, who will hold the metal until you decide to liquidate.
Do you have any minimums?
Our minimum orders may vary depending on the type of product you’re investing in. We’d invite you to call us at 1-800-526-7765 for more details.
