Gold IRA Accounts

We at San Diego Bullion Exchange can help you fill out your Self-Directed IRA with actual Gold, Silver, Platinum, and Palladium.

A retirement portfolio can be easily and effectively diversified with precious metals. In particular over the long run, gold, silver, platinum, and palladium can be a balancing asset to even-out portfolio risk. Investments in precious metals are wise because they provide protection against inflation. It’s simple to set up a Self-Directed IRA with precious metals, but it’s crucial to comprehend the differences between an IRA with precious metals and one that holds securities like equities, bonds, and notes.

The majority of retirement assets, which typically consist of stocks, mutual funds, bonds, and annuities, are held in Traditional or Roth IRAs or 401(k)s. Only a Self-Directed IRA may be used to acquire actual gold and other precious metals. A Self-Directed IRA allows the investor to choose their own investments from a far wider selection of goods, such as Gold, Silver, Platinum, and Palladium. Precious Metals IRA or Gold-Backed IRA are common names for this kind of Self-Directed IRA.

Each commodity must satisfy very stringent fineness or purity requirements as assessed by the IRS in order to be purchased in a precious metals IRA. This guarantees that the investment will take advantage of the tax advantages an IRA offers.

Like any IRA, to fund a Self-Directed IRA with Precious Metals, you can make the allowable contributions or rollover or transfer funds from an existing retirement account. Currently, San Diego Bullion accepts transfers or rollovers from the following account types:

  • Traditional and Roth IRA’s
  • SEP and Simple IRA’s
  • 401k’s
  • 403b’s
  • Thrift Savings Plans (TSP)
  • Deferred Compensation Plans
In addition, we welcome annual contributions and new accounts with a minimum of $3,500.
