No Collectibles Allowed in a Precious Metals IRA

Precious Metals IRA No Symbol Red Circle Slash

Please note that regardless of what dealers (agents) tell you, collectible coins are not permitted in a precious metals IRA under any circumstance. Nevertheless, you can purchase collectible coins as a separate investment (outside of your IRA) but you will have to store these coins on your own. The reason why collectible coins are not approved by the IRS is simply because they have a much lower gold purity level.

The major effect of buying unapproved coins is that the IRS will charge you income tax on the amount of your acquisition as the IRS will consider it a withdrawal. There is also a 10% penalty for anybody under 59.5 years of age.
