Learn About THE BENEFITS OF GOLD Bullion

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.

Gold Purity Requirements

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.

Augusta cannot guarantee, and makes no representation, that any metals purchased by a customer will appreciate at all or appreciate sufficiently to make a profit, and there is no certainty that any metals can be sold for a profit. The future value of the coins you purchase cannot be predicted. You could lose money. Don't purchase Augusta products with money you can't afford to lose. Prices may rise and fall over time or rapidly. Past performance of any coin does not guarantee future results. Premium coins are sold for more than the spot price of the precious metal they contain. Augusta's sale prices and buy-back prices are determined and controlled by Augusta. The value assigned to the coins you purchase at any given time may vary from retailer to retailer and Augusta cannot guarantee another retailer will value the coins at the same rate as Augusta would in any given circumstance. Augusta cannot guarantee buy-back of any item it sells and cannot guarantee another retailer will purchase coins purchased through Augusta. Augusta cannot guarantee another retailer will value a premium coin at the same rate as Augusta would in any given circumstance. In a worst case scenario, you might have to sell your precious metals at “melt value,” which is the value of the products determined solely by their intrinsic metal content, which could result in a significant loss.
