Adding Precious Metals to Your IRA
For the typical investor, silver and gold can be an excellent way to diversify retirement assets and help protect your wealth against inflation. Silver and gold have been considered “money” for over 5,000 years, in fact, both will still buy the equivalent goods today that they did over 2,000 years ago in ancient Rome. While currencies come and go throughout history, gold and silver maintain intrinsic value, which is immutable and permanent.
Maintain Control Over Your Assets
By establishing a precious metals IRA, investors can take control of physical metal inventories, rather than often-used ETF’s, which are only considered paper assets, since they do not offer physical ownership of the metals.
Silver and gold bullion rounds from The American Relief Mint offer a safe, low-cost and easy way to own precious metals: Safe, because they are guaranteed for weight and purity and you maintain physical possession; Low-cost, in that our premiums are often-times $2-3 dollars lower per ounce than government issued coins, which allows you to buy more silver for your money; And easy, in that our products are quickly bought and sold, as well as recognized by reputable coin dealers throughout the country.
The IRS prohibits retirement plans from purchasing any type of collectible, including coins. However, precious metal products from the American Relief Mint, including our silver and gold rounds with a fineness of .999 and .9999, respectively, qualify as eligible retirement investments. The American Relief Mint offers numerous products that meet government specified IRS guidelines
