Minimum Fineness Requirements

An IRA may hold investments in certain precious metals allowed by the Internal Revenue Code. Coin or bullion that is not specifically permitted are considered to be collectibles and are disallowed for IRAs.  In the United States of America for example the allowable exceptions were broadened by the Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997, effective January 1, 1998.

The specific precious metals permitted are: silver, gold and platinum American Eagle coins, a coin issued under the laws of any State, and gold, silver platinum or palladium bullion that meets the minimum fineness requirements

Currently, gold must be .9950 pure, silver must be .9990 pure, and both platinum and palladium must be .9995 pure to qualify.

Bars, rounds and coins must be produced by a refiner, assayer or manufacturer that is accredited/certified by NYMEX, COMEX, NYSE/Liffe, LME, LBMA, LPPM, TOCOM, ISO 9000, or national government mint in order to be accepted by WesternClear.
