What is a Precious Metals IRA?

"The Most Flexible IRA"

A Precious Metals IRA is also called "The Most Flexible IRA", it blends the wealth-building leveraging of tax deferment with the protection that tangible assets offer. This type of retirement account operates in the same manner as a standard IRA, offering the same contribution limits and tax benefits, but offers a wide selection of asset investment choices and provides additional choices for distributions. See additional distribution benefits below.

A Precious Metals IRA Doesn't Just Offer a Diversification Hedge...

It Can Construct a Solid Foundation, Empowering You to Protect Wealth, Foster Growth, and Navigate Volatility in the Paper & Real Estate Markets.

Why Turn Your Standard IRA or Retirement Account into the Most Flexible IRA?

Your standard conventional IRA, an individual retirement account, only offers typical paper investment choices such as equities, mutual funds, stocks, bonds, and ETFs.  

In contrast, a Precious Metals IRA allows for many more investment choices, giving investors more diversification, flexibility, and investment strategies above and beyond stock and paper markets. See the list of added investment choices below. 

Additionally, both standard IRAs and Precious Metals IRAs offer the same tax-deferred contribution limits and maintain the distribution rules. However, with a Physical Precious Metals IRA, you gain financial benefits and strategic advantages through distributions, including required minimum distributions (RMDs). This differs from standard IRAs or retirement accounts which are limited to paper investments like stocks and bonds and typically only allow for cash distributions. 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.

Key Points to Understand
About Your Precious Metals IRA

Current rules and regulations for your gold & silver IRA are the same as all other IRA accounts. For the year 2023, the highest allowable contribution is $6,500, increasing to $7,500 for individuals aged 50 and above. Mandatory minimum distributions for a Gold IRA begin at age 72.5. Without special exceptions, early withdrawals before reaching 59.5 may result in penalties.

You have the option to select from a variety of IRA-eligible coins and bars (collectibles are excluded). Havard Gold Group ensures IRS regulations are met by setting up an account to be overseen by a quality custodian. Custodial services encompass maintaining your account, statements, bookkeeping, and account administration. They also oversee the depository to ensure your metals are accounted for. IRA-approved depositories are required by the IRS to undergo frequent audits, adhere to strict security protocols, and carry comprehensive insurance. To mitigate risk, you can choose from depositories that are not owned by any government or bank entity. IRA depositories insurance protection covers losses, theft, natural disasters, and damage. In contrast, paper assets like stocks, equities, and bonds do not even have FDIC insurance coverage. Additionally, depositories can start the shipping process for metal distributions as quickly as three days after receiving the paperwork.

We are well-versed in the nuances of establishing a Precious Metals IRA, including any initial fees or additional costs that might be involved.

IRS Approved Precious Metals

Precious Metlas IRAs enable you to own and hold physical gold and silver, offering a valuable avenue for asset diversification and financial protection. However, IRS guidelines dictate specific requirements for approved precious metals.

The most popular gold IRA coin in America is the prestigious Gold American Eagle. The first American Eagle Gold Coins were released to the public in 1986, available in four denominations: one-ounce, one-half ounce, one-quarter ounce, and one-tenth of an ounce. The most sought-after is the one-tenth of an ounce. The IRS allows for several other countries minted and guaranteed coins within your IRA, but the main requirement is that the gold coin must have a minimum purity of 99.5%.

Examples of IRS-approved gold assets include:

Silver IRA coins and bars must be 99.99% pure. This fineness level is found in most assets sold by Harvard Gold Group.

Examples of IRS-approved silver assets include:

Featured Products for Precious Metals IRAs

Considering Adding Platinum and/or Palladium to your IRA?

Ensure it meets the minimum purity requirement of 99.95%. Approved platinum options include American Platinum Eagles and the majority of platinum bars endorsed by the IRS.

Palladium is a sought-after precious metal that can be included in IRA portfolios. However, IRS regulations mandate that only palladium with a purity level of 99.95% or higher is eligible for deposition into an IRA account. Fortunately, many palladium bars and coins, such as the American Palladium Eagle, meet the IRS standards and are approved for IRA investment.

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

Like a standard IRA or retirement account, a Precious Metals IRA is a tax-advantaged investment vehicle. As such, you cannot maintain the tax-free status of your retirement funds if they are held in your possession. In a Precious Metals IRA, your gold and silver - tangible forms of real money - must be stored in an IRA-approved depository.
