Certain bullion and proof coins, along with certain precious metal bars, may be held in an Individual Retirement Account.

IRA-eligible gold bars and coins (with the exception of bullion and proof gold American Eagles) must have a minimum fineness of 99.5 percent to qualify for an IRA.

Silver products must have a minimum fineness of 99.9 percent to qualify for an IRA.

Once an investor has made the choice to include precious metals in an IRA, they should choose an appropriate IRA custodian. (Goldline can suggest one, if desired).

After the IRA custodian receives the proper paperwork and funds, the next steps are to decide which precious metals to include in the IRA.

The Express IRA Program

Goldline’s Express IRA program is a unique, expedited way to acquire precious metals.

With the Express IRA program, once an investor has opened a self-directed IRA with an independent custodian, he or she may order precious metals as quickly as the business day after the IRA has been opened. Qualifying purchases are eligible to receive free bullion coins that offset the first year’s IRA setup fees.

When it is time to take a distribution from the IRA, Goldline can assist with the conversion of precious metals to cash.

The Express IRA program is only offered by Goldline and comes with Goldline’s groundbreaking price protection programs.
