Most people are aware that Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs) are legally authorized to buy gold and other precious metals. However, many traditional custodians, such as Charles Schwab, Merrill Lynch and JP Morgan Chase, don't offer physical precious metals as an investment option. If your depositary doesn't offer precious metals as an investment option, you can initiate a reinvestment or a direct transfer to a custodian that does. When it comes to numismatic coins, most of them are excluded from eligibility.
To qualify for a precious metals IRA, the coins or ingots must meet certain manufacturing specifications in terms of physical weight. American Rare Coin and Collectibles is one of the few companies that offer high-quality ingot products that qualify for a precious metals IRA.
