Gold IRA

How to Use Physical Silver & Gold to Protect Your Savings

For years, you’ve been doing the heavy lifting needed to save for your future. But many obstacles have threatened your savings.

Here are two of the most powerful threats against your comfortable retirement – and your financial legacy:

  1. a relentless decline in the U.S. dollar’s value

  2. global economic weaknesses and crises

In the relative blink of an eye, either of these risks or any number of other market and economic stresses can wipe out much your lifetime of savings.

Fortunately, you can manage these risks with physical gold and silver in an IRA.

To realize your dreams, you have to do more than build a nest-egg – you have to protect it.


Thanks to the 1977 Taxpayer Relief Act, with gold/silver in a self-directed IRA, you can:

  • Manage (and control) your own physical, non-paper precious metals assets

  • Benefit from tax-advantaged savings like other retirement savers

  • Leverage the unique advantages of alternative assets: physical gold & silver

  • Avoid mainstream banking and the uncertain security of digital systems

With the safe-haven capacity of physical gold & silver in your IRA, you can:
