Augusta Precious Metals – an award-winning precious metals industry leader – is proud to present some of the world's purest, most popular gold coins and bars for savers who want to purchase physical gold for an IRA or cash account.
Savers seeking greater control over their savings often look to gold bullion coins.
To be suitable for tax-advantaged retirement accounts such as IRAs, any gold bars or coins must meet certain standards of precious metals purity.
The purity of gold bullion (and other precious metals) is expressed in terms of fineness, the number of gold parts per thousand in a bullion piece. For example, gold coins rated at a fineness of 999 are considered to be 99.9% pure. The small percentage of parts not made of pure gold is a mixture of other metals, including base metals, as well as impurities.
Physical gold must be at least 99.5% pure gold to be eligible for inclusion in an IRA, with one exception...
The American Gold Eagle is the U.S. Mint’s flagship gold coin. You can buy it for an IRA even with 91.67% purity.
Allowable bullion coins and bars must be produced by an approved refiner to be eligible for inclusion in an IRA.
Refer to this page on Augusta’s website for more information about gold and silver IRAs.
As with any gold bullion, the value of a bullion coin is based on its gold content and the weight of the coin. Coin prices fluctuate depending on the daily price of gold in the world market. Each mint that produces gold coins guarantees the coins’ precious metal content.
Augusta classifies its products as either Common Bullion Products or Premium Products. Common Bullion Products generally are priced in accordance with the value of the precious metal they contain. Either of the products may increase or decrease in value.
