To qualify as IRA eligible precious metals, the following minimum fineness requirements must be met:

Gold must be 99.5% pure, silver must be 99.9% pure, and platinum and palladium must both be 99.95% pure.

Bars, rounds and coins must be produced by a refiner, assayer or manufacturer that is accredited/certified by NYMEX, COMEX, NYSE/Liffe, LME, LBMA, LPPM, TOCOM, ISO 9000, or national government mint and meeting minimum fineness requirements.

Small bullion bars (other than 400-ounce gold, 100-ounce gold, 1000-ounce silver; 50-ounce platinum and 100-ounce palladium bars) must be manufactured to exact weight specifications.

Non-proof (bullion) coins must be in brilliant uncirculated condition and free from damage.

IRA Approved Silver

Not all silver coins, proof coins, bars, and rounds are created equal. In order to be eligible, the products must meet a specific fineness requirement of .995, with the exception of American Eagles. However, there are many qualified precious metals that can be placed in a Silver IRA. Though IRAs were once limited to only holding American Eagle products, today, IRAs include all IRS-permitted gold, silver, platinum and palladium products. Thanks to the Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997 which expanded the precious metals holdings allowed in IRAs to include one, one-half, one-quarter or one-tenth ounce U.S. silver coins and one-ounce silver coins minted by the U.S. Treasury Department, along with certain foreign coins.

Frequently asked questions

Why is it important to own physical precious metals like gold?

Owning physical gold diversifies your retirement savings and can protect your assets against inflation. Read our Market Watch press release to learn how you can protect your financial future.

What is IRA-eligible gold?

Gold IRA vs Physical Gold: What is the difference?

There’s a lack of tax advantages. Acquiring physical gold doesn’t offer the same tax benefits associated with retirement accounts as it does with a gold IRA. The choice between the two depends on your retirement goals and preferences.

What Kind of Accounts Can I Rollover or Transfer?

You can rollover or transfer the following types of accounts into a precious metal IRA:

  1. Traditional IRA
  2. 401(k)
  3. 401(a)
  4. 403(b)
  5. 457(b)
  6. TSP
  7. SEP IRA
  8. Non-IRA investment accounts (e.g. brokerage account)

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 purpose of using a depository is to ensure the safety and security of the assets in the precious metals IRA, and to provide an independent third-party storage solution for the precious metals.

The role of the depository is to hold and protect precious metals, and to provide periodic statements and valuation reports to the custodian and the IRA owner. 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.
