A gold IRA or precious metals IRA is an Individual Retirement Account in which physical gold or other approved precious metals are held in custody for the benefit of the IRA account owner. It functions the same as a regular IRA, only instead of holding paper assets, it holds physical bullion coins or bars.

Noble Gold just completed my rollover from an old 401k from a previous employer to physical gold and silver. They resolved any issues or concerns that I had during the transition. The paperwork was quick and they kept me up to date along the way. Now I have a nice stack of metal in their Texas depository. They even sent me a photo of my metals from the depository! 5 stars from me.
After speaking with some other gold ira companies, I decided to go with Noble Gold. I enjoyed my conversation with Collin and his insight really resonated with me. I’m a first timer and there was so much that I didn’t know. Now, I can happily say that I am an owner of precious metals. I feel protected knowing that I’ve allocated some of my assets into gold and silver. Thank you Collin and Noble Gold.
I am a first time precious metals buyer. I talked to Andrew and he was very patient with me. He gave me so much knowledge about the industry as a whole and why gold and silver are essential right now. When I do another order, I will definitely be calling Andrew. Thank you Noble Gold!
Thank you Noble Gold and Christian for making my first time buying precious metals very easy. I could tell that he knew what he was talking about by how he explained complex financial ideas in a way that made complete sense to me. I felt comfortable moving forward with the purchase and I intend to do it again in the near future. I now feel that I have a firm grasp on the concepts of precious metals and their true value. Thanks Christian!
I invested in precious metals to diversify and I chose Noble Gold Investments through word of mouth. Investing with them was easy and the process was sweet and simple. Give them a call and they’d answer any type of question that you had, being if you are a seasoned person investing in gold and silver or if you are someone new. They were everything that I would expect a salesperson to be. It wasn’t anything over and beyond but all my expectations were met.
After seeing their ads everywhere I decided to give them a call. I had been meaning to move into metals for a while but my husband and I were planning on going on a long vacation at the end of the month. I talked to Ben and he and his team were able to rollover my IRA, purchase my metals and have them shipped to the depository in Texas. They were really informative and innovative with easy to use electronic forms that sped up the entire process dramatically. I would recommend choosing Noble Gold if you are looking for a hassle-free, fast, and efficient rollover into metals.
There are strict rules governing the purity and type of metals which are valid for IRA inclusion:
The following gold coins are acceptable to be held in a gold IRA by the IRS:
You can invest in the above mentioned gold coins in specific sizes. One ounce, one half, one quarter, and one tenth ounce gold coins are allowed by the Internal Revenue Service.
For more information about our other coins and bullion – click here – or call our team at 877-646-5347.
In case you are still sitting on the fence – we have saved the best until last!
We all have tax to pay. Some willingly, some a little more reluctantly. With a precious metals IRA you pay NO TAX on the gain in the value of your metals when they are sold!
The only tax you pay is on the money from the sale of the gold.
For this reason alone, a gold IRA rollover makes perfect sense in any group of assets.
Make sure that you do not miss out on the opportunity to safeguard your financial future by ignoring centuries of awareness, and understanding about the safety and value of gold.

All that glitters…
The allure of gold has fired the human imagination for centuries. When putting together this website , one thing we wanted to include is a history of gold.
When we look at the narrative, what strikes us, is the remoteness of the ancient examples commonly used – and we thought it time to bring the story of gold up to date and to make it more local.
Noble Gold is proud to be based here in California – this is where the American story of gold began. Whether you are thinking of starting a gold IRA rollover or just have an interest in gold, we hope you find this brief history as fascinating as we do.
A large part of gold’s value is tied up in its past. In how it kept it’s value across centuries, and increased its worth, thousands of times over.
The regard and awe in which gold is held is a measure of the attraction and fascination, of this amazing yellow metal.

“The abandonment of the gold standard made it possible for the welfare statists to use the banking system as a means to an unlimited expansion of credit. In the absence of the gold standard, there is no way to protect savings from confiscation through inflation. There is no safe store of value. Deficit spending is simply a scheme for the hidden confiscation of wealth. Gold stands in the way of this insidious process. It stands as a protector of property rights. If one grasps this, one has no difficulty in understanding the statists’ antagonism toward the gold standard.” — Alan Greenspan
Our story starts with the discovery of deposits in Nubia. These fed the Egyptian Pharaohs and their courts with gold for jewelry, which we are still marveling at – over 3,000 years later.
Taking a development of the first silver bartering tokens invented by King Pheidon of Argos around 700 BC – the Lydians , under their King Croesus then used gold to mint what we know as coins in the Middle East. Coins could be used to buy goods and services. Portable, easily recognized, and with an exact value. They were perfect for trading.
So successful was his invention, Croesus is associated with expressions describing the wealthy, even today. The Romans and Greeks improved on this system of payment, and with their hoards of coinage ran Empires, conquering a large part of the globe.
The Conquistadors of Spain then discovered vast troves of Inca and Aztec treasure in South America and transported it back to Europe by galleon in the Middle Ages. Gold was traded, stolen by pirates and thieves, and used by Governments and Kingdoms both legally and illegally, to fight regional wars and expand Empires across the world. So astonishingly valuable was the Spaniard’s stolen fortune, adventurers still scour the globe for sunken ships laden with doubloons and golden jewelry. They spend millions of dollars on speculative explorations to recover the treasure, using the most modern recovery techniques.
Throughout this period, gold’s value as a basis for the wealth of nations was established. Those with vast gold reserves were always the “players” on the world stage. It was this gold which gave them the money needed to back up their expansion across continents.
In more recent times, after America was “discovered” and settled, one of the most fascinating and incredible stories in the modern era of gold happened.
The outcome of this tale founded a State, a major city and more. It is also the reason you may well have a stake in the adventures and explorations of your ancestors, even today!
Back in the spring and summer of 1848 – James Marshall discovered gold in The American River at Coloma, California, just north of Sacramento. Word spread and in the fall people came flocking to the area looking to seek their fortunes. By 1849, the first of 300,000 prospectors were staking their claims and panned in the rivers and streams for the placer gold which laced rivers and streams in the hills and valleys of the Sierra Nevada. These prospectors faced hardships which are unimaginable today. They became known collectively as “forty-niners”, due to the year in which most of them struck out to search for the gold. Many died and most of those who made it through disease, sickness, starvation and crime, returned broken and worse off financially than if they had never left their homes! At first the pickings were easy, there was surface gold all over the territory. Many of the original prospectors did strike it rich. An estimated tens of billions of dollars in today’s prices of gold was found and extracted. Once the surface gold was taken – the only way to reach further lodes and veins was not only to dig and create small mines, but also to use newly designed extraction and refining techniques. This needed more men and equipment – and more money.
San Francisco became the port for shipping the gold and for bringing in the gear to mine it. A settlement of just a few hundred people when the gold rush began, became an important hub of almost 40,000 people by 1852. This grew to 150,000 by 1870.
As word of the finds became news, San Francisco became the focal point of the prospecting hordes and ships arrived from across the world. Their crews even abandoned them, to join the passengers – every one looking for gold.
As the gold became harder to find, the American prospectors became resentful of the explorers from other countries, all trying to get a piece of the action. They became violent towards them, and the California State Legislature even passed an act which charged a monthly tax on these “alien” adventurers to pacify the Americans. They were just as bad to the Native Americans. Skirmishes and violence between miners and explorers and other groups became commonplace. There were many deaths.
Just over 100 prospectors became fabulously wealthy by staking their claims and laying out their territories early. Some three thousand made “good” money. The rest broke even, or returned home worse off than they started.
Ancillary businesses, boarding houses, bars, shipping, retail, transportation and entertainment, sowed the seeds of California’s economic birth and traded with millions of dollars worth of transactions over the seven years of the gold rush. Gaming houses, saloons and brothels, often run by women along with laundry services and food, also did spectacular levels of business. “Supplies” really took off. The miners relied on goods being shipped or moved slowly overland. There was no infrastructure in place. As the gold became harder to find so more and more equipment was needed to dig for it, shore up the diggings, transport the spoil and the ore, house and feed the miners, refine, then securely store the gold. Once processed, the gold was used as money amongst the people, to pay for everyday expenses both locally and in other countries, for goods shipped to California. The longer-term and more careful prospectors did not spend, but returned to their homes, both here and abroad, with their spoils.
The impact of the gold rush in California, America and on the wider world, cannot be overstated.
Globally, one of the most interesting examples of this effect is of France. It is estimated that US$80 million of gold from California ended up there. In the years following the gold rush, this level of gain was echoed throughout other countries of the world.
The gold which stayed in California found its way to banks and clearing houses, and was made into coins and bullion. To regularize these coins, The San Francisco Mint was built, and the first official US denominated coins made from California gold were struck and circulated.
Over the years, having been verified by assay checks, much of the gold ended up in national banks and ultimately, the Bullion Depository at Fort Knox.
Stored here next as bars and ingots, a little is minted today, as gold coin.
It is exciting to think when buying these freshly minted American Eagles, they might be made from gold found or mined by the pioneers who took part in the great California gold rush. Sitting in your hand may be a small, yet very valuable, piece of American history!

The first step is to fill out the online IRA set up form here. The form is easy and will only take about five minutes to fill out. If you don’t know all of the answers, we will follow up with a phone call to fill in the blanks.
Within 24 hours, our Noble Gold IRA team will contact your new custodian and get your account setup for you. We will also find out if there is any additional paperwork that your specific custodian requires. We will email you the new self directed ira account number for your records.
There are 2 ways of doing this; a transfer or a rollover.
With a transfer, you don’t have to do anything. A transfer involves moving the assets directly from one custodian to another custodian without you taking receipt of the funds. Our team will work with New Direction IRA, your self-directed IRA custodian to get your funds moved over quickly. Typically, it takes between 3-7 days to move your funds from your old custodian to your new custodian. Once the funds are moved over they will put the funds into a FDIC money market account and your account representative will call you.
A rollover is when you take receipt of your funds and have up to 60 days to reinvest them into a new retirement plan. Your current IRA account provider mails a physical check to your home. Then you are responsible for mailing the check to us. As long as the funds are deposited into your new Gold IRA within that 60 day window, there are no tax penalties.
Absolutely not. As described above, there are no taxes or penalties as long as you are moving from one qualified retirement account to another, from custodian to custodian. With the rollover, as long as the 60 day rule is satisfied, you’re in the clear.
