What is a Gold IRA?

All retirement accounts offer IRA tax advantages, but not all accounts are equal in their offerings. Among the various types of Individual Retirement Accounts, there exists a self-directed option known as the physical gold variety. This particular IRA empowers you with ownership of tangible precious metals, providing a distinct level of protection and assets. Gone are the days of fretting over volatile stocks and bonds.
By transitioning to a retirement account backed by real gold and silver, securely held in an IRS-approved facility, you can say farewell to such worries. The most enticing aspect is that you have the freedom to personally decide the assortment of precious metals to hold within your account.

Personally holding metals.

You can of course hold the illustrious metals in your house, but taxes must be paid for that privilege. Because the IRS considers such conduct a taxable event, but the choice is yours to have your retirement precious metals shipped directly to you for physical possession, or to a depository and remain untaxed.

Accessing your gold in your gold IRA.

Pay a visit any time you miss them or just give them an inspection. These are your metals at the depository. But always remember that if you take any home, that constitutes a distribution from your Gold IRA, which triggers taxes.

You choose what variety you want. You decide the amount. Safe Haven Metal provides you with inventory sheets when the purchase is complete. You also have online account access to the itemized statements of all your precious metals. The options from what you want to do from there are limitless.

i.)         Customer ships the Precious Metals products originally purchased from SHM for inspection because the buy back offer is only for the exact items purchased from us, inclusive of exact condition; and 

ii.)        The cash value of buy back will be at or near Spot Price at the time when we have examined the product to ensure it passes inspection (which is at our or our designated inspector’s sole good faith discretion as to current condition compared to documented condition when originally purchased); 

iii.)      A new agreement is then presented by SHM to Customer reflecting Spot Price and conditions quantities much like this Invoice; the offer is valid for 24 hours after inspection approval and new agreement sent;

Risk Disclosures

Investing in everything is a risk; values fluctuate, sometimes going up, other times down; no one can predict the future; that is why diversified portfolios are usually recommended. The best anyone can do is make informed decisions and see if correct over time, therefore do research, do your homework. Do not invest more in precious metals than you feel comfortable with after informing yourself. Read your contract; ask your attorney to review it. We strive to do right and help others, if you do not understand something then ask us. There are no guarantees, other than doing our best for you.


Our communication of portfolio is intended as Oxford Dictionary defines “portfolio” as: “a range of products or services offered by an organization, especially when considered as a business asset” and Oxford defines “analysis” as “detailed examination of the elements or structure of something”.
