Are you tired of risking all of your hard earned retirement money in the stock market?

You've worked hard to secure your retirement income for the future, but there are uncertain economic conditions, both in the United States and worldwide. There is volatility in the stock market and a weakening U.S. Dollar. Are these factors putting your hard earned dollars at risk?

APMEX can help you diversify your holdings and add a defensive asset to your portfolio.

It is simple and easy to rollover all or any portion of your stock based on IRA into a Precious Metal IRA. Precious Metals are widely regarded as a "defense asset" that can provide a level of safety for your principal during volatile times. That is because Precious Metals price movements are often contrary to the stock market's movements. Precious Metals may also provide a level of diversification to your stocks, bonds, and mutual funds and diversification is widely considered a prudent course of action. You may purchase gold, silver, platinum, or palladium, and hold your investments in an individual Retirement Account. Many experts recommend that at least 5 to 10% of your retirement dollars be invested in Precious Metals.

APMEX offers you a variety of items that are permitted in Precious Metals IRAs. These including, but not limited to:

  • APMEX 10 oz. and 100 oz. .999 Fine Silver Bars.
  • Engelhard & Johnson Matthey .999 Fine Silver Bars.
  • Brilliant Uncirculated and Proof American Silver, Gold, and Platinum Eagles (Uncirculated & Proof).
  • Brilliant Uncirculated Gold Buffalos.
  • Canadian Gold, Silver, Platinum and Palladium Maple Leafs
  • Austrian Gold and Silver Philharmonics
  • Gold (.999 + fine) bars and rounds manufactured by a NYMEX or COMEX- approved refiner/ assayer.
  • Silver (.999 + fine) bars and rounds manufactured by a NYMEX or COMEX- approved refiner/ assayer.
  • Platinum (.999 + fine) and Palladium (.999 + fine) bars and rounds manufactured by a NYMEX or COMEX- approved refiner/ assayer.
  • In addition to many other items.

APMEX does guarantee that every item that we sell is genuine and that all precious metal items do contain the weight, fineness, and purity that we have advertised. However, all investments, of every type, involve some level of risk and precious metals are no exception. Like many markets, the precious metals market is speculative, and it is unregulated. The value of any bullion item is generally determined by current spot price of the underlying precious metal, and by the supply and demand for these particular items. These prices will fluctuate throughout the day while the precious metals market is open. If you are considering purchasing Precious Metals as an investment, you should assess the stability of the current market as well as contacting your financial advisor for advice.
