IRA Approved Gold Coins and Bullion
Gold coins and bullion eligible for inclusion in an Individual Retirement Account must meet certain purity requirements, in addition to being legal tender coins.
The best IRA companies provide products and educational resources to meet these standards and assist investors in making educated decisions when purchasing precious metals through self-directed IRAs. Self-directed precious metal investing has never been simpler!
American Eagle Coins
American Eagle coins are legal tender gold bullion coins with a legal tender “face value”. As the only investment-grade coin available worldwide, American Eagles feature imprinted with their gold content and weight as well as high silver purity levels.
As part of changes to the law, Individual Retirement Arrangements can now hold precious metal coins and bars of minimum fineness from approved mints; previously they were limited to holding only Gold and Silver Eagle coins.
Proof American Eagle coins are limited-edition coins with lower mintages and greater rarity, typically priced depending on both Gold or Silver valuation and market demand/supply dynamics.
Australian Kangaroo/Nugget Coins
Australian Kangaroo coins have quickly become one of the world’s most beloved gold bullion coins due to their timeless appeal and unique artistry. Each coin bears an obverse with Queen Elizabeth II designed by Ian Rank Broadley while on its reverse is featured a new red kangaroo depiction every year – which makes this coin one of the world’s best sellers!
These coins were first issued in 1986 and have become renowned for their superior quality and purity, being approved for inclusion into an Individual Retirement Account (IRA). Minted at the Perth Mint in Western Australia, each coin contains one troy ounce of pure gold that serves as legal tender in Australia.
Austrian Philharmonic Coins
Since 2008, Austrian Silver Philharmonic coins have become one of Europe’s most beloved silver bullion investments. Combining high purity with artistic design, these highly liquid coins can easily be bought or sold – they come available as single coins, rolls of 20, or in Monster Boxes of 500 coins!
The coin’s obverse depicts the Great Organ at Musikverein while its reverse features an eye-catching ensemble of musical instruments that pays homage to Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra’s image. As all bullion products, these coins make an excellent addition to precious metals portfolios due to low correlation with stocks and bonds; moreover, in most states sales tax is waived when purchasing this type of coin.
British Britannia Coins
Silver Britannia coins are approved IRA bullion assets, providing you with an excellent way to diversify your precious metals portfolio. Each coin contains one troy ounce of.999 fine silver and feature Jody Clark’s iconic portrait of Queen Elizabeth II on one side; on the reverse is Britannia as a representation of Britain’s strength and resilience.
In 1987, The Royal Mint released its Silver Britannia coin designed by sculptor Philip Nathan to reflect the mood of its time. Since then, this coin has gained worldwide recognition and liquidity on major bullion markets, making it suitable for investors of all levels of experience.
Canadian Maple Leaf Coins
The Gold Maple Leaf coin, first released for public sale by the Royal Canadian Mint in 1979, has become one of the world’s most beloved bullion coins. Legal tender in Canada with $50 face value and made from pure gold, these popular coins remain immensely popular bullion pieces.
These coins contain 99.99% fine gold and offer strong buy-back values at premiums above their fluctuating spot price, providing financial security and diversifying assets in your IRA account.
Gold Maple Leaves from APMEX come in several sizes: 1/2 oz, 1/20 oz, 1/4 oz and 1/10 oz. Through our mint direct process, they’re delivered straight from the Royal Canadian Mint for your convenience.
Chinese Panda Coins
Chinese Panda Coins are an exquisite silver bullion series created to pay tribute to China’s national treasure, the Giant Panda bear. Each coin in this series depicts a specific image of this endangered bear species on the reverse side, changing as each coin in the series comes out.
The reverse side features the Temple of Heaven in south-central Beijing as well as Chinese characters and the year of issue.
Panda coins do not feature mint marks to indicate their place of manufacture, making them an attractive collectible bullion coin option as they often fetch higher than silver spot prices.
