IRA APPROVED METALS
Most tax experts suggest that you keep a diversified retirement portfolio that includes gold, silver, and other precious metals.
Fortunately, the Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997 legally allows you to include a wide range of bullion coins and precious metals in your IRA or other self-directed retirement accounts.
In order to be acceptable for inclusion in a retirement account, a bullion coin or bar must be manufactured by an official government mint.
In addition, all bullion coins and bars must be in the physical possession of a custodian bank or other third-party trustee.
The following is a list of bullion coins allowed in an IRA or other retirement account.
According to the U.S. Mint, the Silver Eagle is the only U.S. silver bullion coin allowed in a retirement account.
Other “State’s” coins include the Chinese Silver Panda, Canadian Maple Leaf, the Mexican Libertad, the Austrian Silver Philharmonic, the Australian Silver Koala, and the Australian Silver Kookaburra.
In addition to Gold Eagles and American Buffalo Gold Bullion Coins, you can also include Canadian Gold Maple Leaf Coins.
