- Why Buy Gold
The U.S. Mint does not sell its bullion coins directly to the public. Instead, they distribute their coins to only a handful of authorized purchasers who then sell the coins to the public. As one of these authorized purchasers, APMEX is able to get coins direct from the U.S. Mint and pass them along to you.

Add 2018 1 oz Gold American Eagle Coins to a Precious Metals IRAMany investors add Gold American Eagle coins to their Precious Metals IRA. In order to start a Precious Metals IRA, you need to first set up a custodian account, which APMEX can help you with. After you make that simple phone call, you can begin purchasing Gold American Eagles as well as other qualifying Precious Metals products, which can be shipped directly to your account. IRS guidelines state that Gold coins must be at least .995 fine to qualify for inclusion in Precious Metals IRAs, but an exception is made for the Gold American Eagle. Once your Gold American Eagles and other Precious Metal items are in an IRA, any gains they accrue is tax-free, just as with any standard IRA. Further, as with any IRA, when you are ready to remove assets you will want to consult your tax adviser about any taxes owed.
