What’s the process for IRA transactions?

FideliTrade works with a number of IRA custodians who allow precious metals in IRAs.  FideliTrade can serve as your dealer for IRA and non-IRA transactions.

After you open and fund your account with an IRA custodian, you may use your FideliTrade account to invest in precious metals.  Simply let a member of our Client Services department know that your buying for your IRA and we’ll ensure that the product you choose is acceptable for an IRA.  FideliTrade will work directly with your IRA custodian to fund the transaction.

IRA custodians typically require signed documentation from you to confirm the purchase.  IRA transactions typically settle within one to two weeks after the purchase is made.

What is meant by the “fineness” or “purity” of precious metals?

The purity of precious metals bullion is measured in parts per thousand and is referred to as “fineness.” This indicates the proportion of pure bullion actually contained in the refined product verses its remaining alloys.  A bar that is 999.9 fine is 99.99% pure gold and referred to as “four nines” gold.

What are the differences between bullion coins and rare or “numismatic” coins?

Bullion coins are produced in mass quantities by government mints and are legal tender in their country of origin.  Bullion coins sell for a premium over their intrinsic (or spot) metal value. Bullion coin prices move, in tandem, with the price fluctuations of the underlying commodity (i.e., gold, silver, platinum or palladium).

Rare or “numismatic” coins are collected and valued for their scarcity, individual beauty, uniqueness or historical significance. Special collectible qualities can potentially render rare coins far more valuable in the marketplace than the value of any gold or silver that they may contain.
