What Is A Gold IRA?

A Gold IRA, a variant of the individual retirement account (IRA), enables you to possess physical gold within the IRA framework. Often labeled as a precious metals IRA, it resembles a conventional IRA but stands out as a self-directed option, granting you the choice of holding physical assets alongside traditional paper investments.

Given the current socio-political and economic landscape, investors are actively exploring avenues to safeguard and preserve their financial holdings. Many are turning to physical gold as a cornerstone of their portfolios.

The True Gold IRA presents a distinctive opportunity to diversify your investment portfolio, allowing ownership of both paper instruments and tangible assets such as gold bars and coins. This dual ownership structure lets you enjoy the stability and liquidity associated with traditional investments while simultaneously benefiting from the added security of possessing tangible assets with inherent value. In essence, a True Gold IRA offers the advantages of both worlds.

Benefits Of A True Gold IRA

Opening a gold IRA account comes with numerous benefits. A gold IRA can:

  1. Enhance portfolio diversification.
  2. Serve as a hedge against inflation.
  3. Bolster security and safeguard your wealth.
Don’t put all of your eggs in one basket. That’s especially the case with protecting your retirement.

In the face of a typical recession or market correction, various sectors across the entire economy can experience adverse effects, consequently impacting the value of your portfolio.

In contrast, physical gold within an IRA constitutes a distinct asset class, independent of the turbulence and fluctuations inherent in the stock market. Gold stands as a genuine form of diversification.


Amid rising gas prices and soaring costs of goods and services, savvy investors turn to gold as a reliable, safe-haven asset during economic uncertainty. Gold historically safeguards against inflation, preserving currency value and offering stability even as prices rise.


Physical gold provides tangible security. In times of financial crises, gold has proven its resilience, doubling in value from 2008 to 2012. Amid uncertainties, gold remains a steadfast asset, standing the test of time.

Frequently Asked Questions:

What Precious Metal Can I Purchase For My Gold IRA?

When acquiring gold for a True Gold IRA, the IRS determines which precious metals are eligible for placement in your IRA. Only coins, bars, and rounds that meet the fineness requirement are eligible. Gold must be 99.5% pure, silver must be 99.9% pure, and platinum and palladium must both be 99.95%. The metals must be produced by a government-backed mint or a LBMA-approved refiner.

Where Will My Gold IRA be Stored?

True Gold Republic partners with custodians and depositories approved by the IRS to guarantee the secure storage of your precious metals. The depositories are located in Texas, Delaware, Salt Lake City, New York, Nevada and Los Angeles.

While there are storage fees associated with keeping your precious metals in these depositories, these fees are competitive and contribute to the reliable preservation of your investment.

How Do I Move Funds From Another Retirement Account Into a Gold IRA?

There are two methods for transferring money between retirement accounts without incurring taxes or penalties: the 60-day rollover option and the trustee-to-trustee transfer. With the 60-day rollover, your existing IRA provider sends a check to your home address, which you then forward to your new self-directed IRA custodian. If the check is deposited into your account within 60 days, no taxes or penalties apply. The trustee-to-trustee transfer involves moving your retirement funds directly from your current IRA provider to your new self-directed IRA, ensuring the quickest possible transfer to your account. Our Account Executives will collaborate closely with you to streamline the transfer process, handling all the necessary steps to alleviate any concerns on your part.

Why Can't I Take Delivery of The Metals In My IRA?

Maintaining a favorable standing with the IRS requires storing gold and silver coins and bars in an approved depository's vaults. While you have the option to liquidate your Gold IRA account and physically acquire your metals, it's crucial to be aware of potential tax ramifications. Taking this action before reaching the age of 59.5 can lead to significant consequences for your retirement balance, including potential tax implications and penalties.
