Precious Metals for Your IRA

Protect your IRA with Precious Metals

Making physical precious metals part of your IRA is a great way to diversify and protect your retirement portfolio. Precious metals are recession-proof investments that are historically proven hedges against negative economic conditions like inflation, war, housing bubbles and taxation.

Safeguard your IRA and your golden years with tangible precious metals bullion and receive the long-term value of mankind's ultimate standard of wealth.

Recession-Proof Your Retirement

Including physical precious metals to your retirement portfolio is a great idea for anyone who's looking to enjoy the peace of mind that comes with tangible ownership of gold, silver, platinum or palladium.

The simple and easy steps to set up your precious metals IRA:

  1. Set up a precious metals IRA account with a custodian. Northwest Territorial Mint recommends GoldStar Trust Company, a distinguished precious metals IRA specialist, but if you have a custodian relationship already in place, please let us know.
    • Name Northwest Territorial Mint as the bullion dealer for the new account, then fund the account via a direct contribution or roll funds over from other existing accounts.
  2. Contact Northwest Territorial Mint and lock in a price for the bullion product you want.
    • Northwest Territorial Mint then ships the physical metal to GoldStar Trust Co. or your custodian for receipt into its depository.
  3. GoldStar Trust Co. or your custodian pays Northwest Territorial Mint with funds from your account and then credits your account with your newly purchased precious metal.
    • GoldStar Trust Co. or your custodian holds the exact precious metals you purchased at an internationally recognized precious metals depository.

Select from our wide variety of IRA-approved bullion

Previously, only gold and silver American Eagle coins were allowed into a precious metals IRA. However, IRA regulations changed in 1997 and a variety of bullion that meets the minimum purity requirements is now approved for inclusion into a precious metals IRA account. This gives you many more options for investing in your IRA.


Northwest Territorial Mint carries a wide selection of government-backed bullion that meets the IRA-required purity standards. Aside from gold American Eagles, eligible gold bullion includes legal tender gold coins with at least a .995-fineness such as: gold Maple Leafs and gold Philharmonics.


Investors looking for eligible silver bullion at low premiums can choose 99.9%-pure Northwest Territorial Mint silver. We also offer a variety of eligible government-minted silver bullion coins that are at least 99.9%-pure, including silver American Eagles and silver Maple Leafs. Also available: 100-ounce silver bars.


Platinum bullion that meets the .9995-fineness requirement are eligible for a precious metals IRA.


Palladium bullion that meets the .9995-fineness requirement are eligible for a precious metals IRA. The PAMP palladium Kilo bar is an especially attractive choice for investors looking to take advantage of the lower premiums that bulk precious metals deliver.
