Funds from a Self Directed IRA can be used to purchase certain precious metals that allowed by the IRS. These are .995 fine gold, .999 fine silver, .9995 fine platinum and .9995 fine palladium. These metals can be in the form of bullion or solid bars, or American Eagle or American Buffalo and the Canadian Maple Leaf coins.
These may be purchased from any disqualified person (someone who is not directly related to you as the owner of the IRA) or entity. This entity is essentially a reputable dealer who carries such products. Your Self Directed IRA and not you becomes the owner of the metals that have been procured with the funds, which means that you cannot take possession of the metals and store it in a registered secure depository.
When you choose to divest the metals that you have purchased upon formal instructions being delivered, the depository will transfer the metals to the non-qualified person or entity who would send the proceeds of the sale through a check to your Self Directed IRA custodian FBO [Your Name].
