Use This Tax-Loophole While You Can!

Following years of hard work, the last concern you want to worry about is the risk of losing your retirement savings.

In a world of increasing turbulence and uncertainty, we are confronted by a divided nation and invasive government overreach. Inflation, war, political crises, and market volatility are the new norm. Amid this chaos, investors find stability and protection in their portfolios with physical gold.

Gold, as well as silver, are exceptional assets offering privacy, liquidity, and scarcity with no credit risk. For over 2,500 years, coins and bars have preserved wealth, delivered long-term returns, and protected against overreaching governments. Physical precious metals are strategic assets that cannot be printed or go to zero like paper assets and currencies. Moreover, because they are considered both a safe-haven asset and have abundant commercial uses, they serve as dual investment vehicles, offering benefits you cannot attain with other assets.

As Americans, we hope and pray for the best -- but prepare for the worst -- to protect our families.

With 5-star ratings across the board and BBB-approved, partnering with Harvard Gold Group (HGG) gives you peace of mind. HGG provides direct access to its co-owners who have over 15 years of experience specializing in Precious Metals IRAs/retirement accounts and in catering to direct delivery, moving over a hundred million dollars into tangible assets.

How Does a Physical Gold-Backed IRA Work?

A Gold IRA turns your retirement savings into physical gold coins or bars that you own and control in lieu of paper assets like stocks and bonds. A self-directed precious metals IRA blends the wealth-building leveraging of tax deferment with the protection that tangible gold offers. This type of retirement account operates in the same manner as a standard IRA, offering the same contribution limits and tax benefits, but it also provides additional choices for distributions. When it is time for you to take distributions, you can choose precious metals, dollars, or a combination of both. Additionally, you can expand your Self-Directed IRA with a diverse range of investment options including real estate, mortgages, loans, cattle, stocks, mutual funds, and more.  

Your retirement account holds your physical gold and is securely stored at an IRS-approved master lockdown depository. For enhanced protection and privacy, Harvard Gold offers its customers access to depositories that are independent of banks or government entities. IRA depositories carry comprehensive insurance protection: covering losses, theft, natural disasters, and damage. Thousands of Americans have already taken advantage of a precious metals IRA and they are recommended by many gold IRA firms; it stands as a dependable choice. 

Why Diversify into a Gold IRA?


Diversifying your investments across various assets is a proven strategy that is critical for achieving long-term financial success. During The Great Recession of 2008, many investors 401K’s turned to 201K’s while home values plummeted 30-50% across America. This serves as a stark reminder of the perils of not hedging dollar-based assets and relying solely on the assurances of politicians and central bankers. In contrast, gold not only weathered the storm but thrived, exhibiting a 51% price increase from December 2008 to December 2009.  

Gold is a reliable hedge against inflation. As inflation rises, it erodes the value and purchasing power of the dollar. The U.S. dollar has lost more than 40% of its purchasing power since the year 2000 and more than 96% since 1913 when the Federal Reserve Act granted Federal Reserve banks the ability to manage the U.S. money supply. In contrast, gold was valued at $20 in 1913 and has surged an astonishing 9900%, now commanding a price of over $2,000, showcasing its formidable resilience and status as a timeless hedge against dollar erosion.

Taking into consideration that in 1920, an ounce of gold was valued at $20 and could purchase 65 gallons of gas. Fast forward to January 2024, the same ounce of gold can now buy you over 590 gallons of gas. Owning gold can provide peace of mind about the purchasing power of your dollar.

You might be curious about why gold IRA firms consistently highlight the importance of diversification. Essentially, diversification involves allocating your investments among different types of assets to mitigate risk. No investment is entirely risk-free, as various assets behave differently to ever-changing market conditions. Hence, securing a well-rounded portfolio that includes a variety of assets, such as gold, can protect your wealth.

True Diversification: Away from Paper & Dollar Denominated Assets

Gold is a ‘Key Asset’ for diversifying and hedging against paper and dollar-denominated investments. Most Americans are unaware of how physical gold has performed. Reflecting on the past 23 years, the U.S. has experienced significant growth in the economy and stock markets, along with enduring three major crises in 2001, 2008, and the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic. What is often overlooked is that physical gold has consistently outperformed the broader stock and bond markets. As of Jan 3, 2024, gold has appreciated by more than 700% since January 3rd, 2000. By incorporating tangible gold into your portfolio, you can enhance your ability to safeguard and expand your wealth in both favorable and challenging economic times.

Gold Outperforms Equities and Bonds

Since the year 2000, physical gold is up over 700%, outperforming the broader stock and bond markets. The chart below clearly showcases how gold surpassed them both:

The Harvard Difference

FAQs About Gold IRAs

Would my IRA have real coins and bars or is it paper-gold and silver in the account? 
No paper assets are placed within the Precious Metals IRA established by Harvard Gold Group. The IRS permits the ownership and control of physical, premium-minted coins and bars made of gold, silver, platinum, and palladium. You can choose all gold or a combination of various precious metals assets.

Why doesn’t my financial advisor recommend buying physical gold and silver?
Brokerage firms and financial advisors generate money in multiple ways, a main source is commissions and fees which are typically charged on the front and back end of transactions. They also typically enjoy income from ‘money under management’. These firms almost exclusively sell paper assets rather than physical assets. Therefore, they understand paper-gold and silver ETFs. ETFs are known for volatility, and they might be steering you away from that risk. Alternatively, they may be reluctant to suggest hedging with physical precious metals, as it would lead to a decrease in money under management.

Does a Physical Precious Metals IRA protect an individual from the US Bank Bail-In Law?
The Precious Metals IRA custodian established for your account is not tied to a bank or government institution. As a result, it can shield you from third-party counter risks, including those presented by the 2014 Bank Bail-In Law in the United States. This ensures that you maintain control over your funds and have actual ownership of them.

Tax-Deferment Benefit of a Gold IRA:
A distinctive benefit of a Gold IRA is its tax advantages, allowing for tax-deferred growth. This means the taxes on your earnings are postponed until you begin to withdraw from your account, facilitating more efficient asset accumulation over time.

For Roth IRA holders, the perks are even greater. Withdrawals from a Roth IRA may be entirely tax-exempt, further enhancing the tax benefits and elevating your financial gains. Delving into these tax advantages as part of your retirement planning can reveal significant opportunities and insights.

Consulting with a tax professional can help you explore tax strategies that meet your goals and objectives to effectively maximize the benefits of your Gold IRA.

Can I take distributions in gold and silver out of my Precious Metals IRA?
With a Physical Precious Metals IRA, you gain financial benefits and strategic advantages through distributions, including required minimum distributions (RMDs).

A Precious Metals IRA offers greater flexibility and control by allowing you to choose distributions in precious metals, cash, or a combination of both, based on your financial goals and objectives. These features have the potential to significantly enhance your prosperity and generational wealth.

Why do my IRA Precious Metals need to be stored at a depository?

This independence enables you to take distributions even during bank closures or when banks impose withdrawal limit restrictions on accounts. Moreover, these depositories have protection through 'all-risk' insurance, ensuring comprehensive coverage against losses, theft, natural disasters, and damage. In contrast, paper assets like stocks, equities, and bonds do not even have FDIC insurance coverage.
