IRA Eligible Metals

Any precious metal owned inside of an IRA must meet certain fineness requirements and must be produced by an approved and accredited refiner.

One of the retirement specialists at Wholesale Coins Direct will guide you through the process of protecting your hard-earned savings by transferring funds from your current IRA or your former 401K/403B account to physical precious metals that you can hold in your hand, not just read about in a monthly statement.

For acquisitions as part of an official IRA or 401K retirement account, you must complete the appropriate paperwork and have the order funded properly. If you’d like to learn more about adding precious metals to your official retirement account, call our Retirement Services Division at 800-694-3518.
