Where can I find a full list of gold and silver investments for my IRA?

Hundreds of types of gold and silver investments are available for purchase online. They each offer their own benefits and drawbacks. These investments include:

  • gold and silver mining stocks
  • gold and silver exchange traded funds (ETFs)
  • gold and silver bullion bars
  • nationally minted modern-day bullion coins
  • limited-edition modern-day bullion coins
  • numismatic gold and silver coins


IRS regulations state that not all of the above-mentioned assets are eligible for retirement account placement. One can place “paper gold” such as mining stocks and ETFs in their retirement accounts, but the most sought after type of gold IRA, the physical kind, carries extra restrictions due to the private nature of precious metals and investors’ ability to take delivery of their IRA’s gold holdings.

Investors who wish to purchase physical gold and silver with their retirement account funds should instead focus on these allowable items:
