When it comes to acquiring a palladium IRA, not all palladium coins are created equal. In order to be eligible for this asset, the coins must meet a specific fineness requirement of .995. However, there are many qualified precious metals that can be placed in a palladium IRA. Though IRAs were once limited to holding American Eagle gold and silver coins, today, IRAs can acquire IRS-permitted gold, silver, palladium and Palladium bullion and coins. Thanks to the Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997 which expanded the precious metal holdings allowed in IRAs to include one, one-half, one-quarter or one-tenth ounce U.S. gold coins and one-ounce silver coins minted by the U.S. Treasury Department, along with certain foreign coins.

Note: The IRS rules regarding precious metal IRAs require that the precious metal held in the IRA meet certain fineness standards and be stored with an IRS-approved depository.

Why Do I Need a Custodian?

A custodian is required for a precious metal IRA because the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) regulations state that all self-directed IRAs, including precious metal IRAs, must be held with a custodian. The role of the custodian is to oversee the management and administration of the IRA, ensuring that all transactions meet the IRS rules and regulations. The custodian is also responsible for holding the precious metal and ensuring that they are stored in an IRS-approved depository. This helps to ensure the safety and security of the assets in the IRA.

Why Do I Need to Use a Depository?

A depository is required for a precious metal IRA because the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) regulations state that all precious metal held in an IRA must be stored in an IRS-approved depository.

The depository is also responsible for the proper insurance and security of the precious metal, including any necessary measures to protect against theft, loss, or damage.

By using an IRS-approved depository, the assets in the retirement funds are kept separate from the custodian’s own assets and are protected in the event of bankruptcy or other financial difficulties. Additionally, having the precious metals held in a depository helps to ensure that they meet the individual retirement account rules and regulations for self-directed IRA.
