WHY PROTECT MY IRA OR 401K WITH GOLD & SILVER?
Gold and silver are two of the world’s most desired commodities. They are the only assets that are universally accepted standards of payment and they have proven track of generally holding value and protecting their owners during economic downturns and other periods of financial crisis, such as a Great Recession.
Many experts agree that gold and silver can be key elements of an investment portfolio, helping to balance both risks and return.
For example, individuals who had invested the majority of their retirement in the stock market saw their portfolio drop dramatically during the 2008 recession. Those who diversified their saving with gold, however, witness the precious metals portion of their portfolio nearly triple in value in the same time frame. Throughout history, gold has been a store of value even in most turbulent times, and hence a self-directed IRA, which allows an individual to allocate a portion of their portfolio into precious metals, can act as a reliable form of wealth protection, particularly in uncertain times.
Investors and Financial Markets
In years past, some investors have lost a large amount of their life savings when financial markets collapsed. For example, investors in Bear Sterns, Lehman Brothers, Washington Mutual, and other big-name financial companies, saw their stock and bonds rendered worthless during the sharp market downturn of 2008. They were not alone; many financial and other companies filed for bankruptcy, wiping out their stockholders. By comparison, gold and silver did remarkably well during this time period because these precious metals not only can provide protection against inflation, but can also provide the owner a defensive position against stock market crashes, geopolitical risk, and economic uncertainty.
While historically, gold and silver were not particularly liquid investments, that is less true today. Multiple private exchanges and liquidators now exist, making it much easier to liquidate gold and silver bars and coins, particularly when they are held by a trusted custodian. At Priority Gold, we can lock your price the same day you call, ensuring a speedy and hassle-free liquidation.
Hedge Against Inflammatory Cycles
Gold Has Real Value
In the past, the U.S. dollar did well since it could be exchanged for gold upon demand. During this time, the currency was nothing more than a receipt, in which a $20 bill could be exchanged for $20 worth of gold. Since moving away from the Gold Standard, however, our American (FIAT) currency has lost its intrinsic value and much of its economic value as well.
On the contrary, gold has become exponentially, more valuable over time, increasing from, $35 per ounce in 1971 to well over $1000 per ounce today. This trend continued into the 21st century, as gold outperformed the S&P 500 three-fold from 2001 through 2004. Gold’s meteoric rise in value is largely due to the metal’s supply and demand dynamics, which have been far more favorable than the U.S. dollar’s.
EMERGENCY GLOBAL SUPERPOWERS
CHINA, RUSSIA, AND INDIA HAVE TAKEN NOTICE
And have begun to hedge their bets against fiat currencies by stockpiling physical gold. as of 2017, china alone has over 20,000 tons of gold stored.
The dollar’s fall in value is due in large part to a rise in inflation risk, which may relate to financial market instability. The graph to the right illustrates this point poignantly as gold has enjoyed a steady rise in value over the last 20 years, while the U.S. dollar has seesawed up and down during the same turbulent time period.
Gold Is Real Currency
• Gold can easily be converted into cash anytime, anywhere on the planet.
• This incredible liquidity is unique to gold, making it especially important to have during uncertain times.
• Shortsighted or other unpredictable actions by governments and financial institutions, such as the Eurozone debt crisis of 2011, can bring about tremendous economic hardship for those unfortunate enough to hold assets that get devalued.
Supply and Demand
WHAT MAKES GOLD VALUABLE IS THAT IT IS A FINITE SUPPLY WITH A HIGH DEMAND
With most of the world’s readily accessible gold mined, less and less of it is being dredged out of the earth.
National Geographic estimates “more than half of all humanity’s gold has been extracted in the past 50 years. Now the world’s richest deposits are fast being depleted, and new discoveries are rare. Gone are the hundred–mile–long gold reef in South Africa or cherry-size nuggets in California. Most of the gold left to mine exists as traces buried in remote and fragile corners of the globe. It’s an invitation to destruction. But there is no shortage of miners, big and small, who are willing to accept”.
DROP IN GOLD PRICES
Gold prices have dropped over the last few years with the recent stock market rally but appear to be climbing again as the stock market shows signs of overheating.
WORLD MARKETS ARE INHERENTLY VOLATILE
Given the state of world economics as well as the current state of the union, gold could be perfectly positioned to increase in value. Now may be the time to follow in the steps of economic superpowers, such as China, India, Germany, and Russia, and buy gold.
The Cost of Mining Gold
The amount of gold found by miners has plunged 85% over the past decade

SILVER CAN BE AN INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT ASSET TO ADD DIVERSIFICATION TO ANY INVESTOR’S PORTFOLIO
Silver holds intrinsic value both as a precious metals and as an individual metal, which guarantees usage and need no matter the market condition. As an industrial metal, you’ll find silver in everything from batteries to dental fillings, LED chips to nuclear reactors, solar energy to semi-conductors, and even water filters, antibacterial agents, and touch screens.
Silver’s versatility makes it a potentially desirable asset to own. Indeed, according to the SILVER INSTITUTE’S WORLD SILVER SURVEY OF 2014, 54% of total physical silver demand comes from industrial users.
“I have physical silver.” Money Morning Defense & Tech Specialist, Michael A. Robinson said last year. “I might have bought some at the top, but I don’t care what the price goes to. I will not sell that physical silver. It’s there for a reason, just like I have insurance for my car. I have insurance in case of disaster.”
THOSE LIKE MICHAEL, WHO HAS OWNED SILVER SINCE THE BEGINNING OF 2016, SEE THE VALUE THAT SILVER BRINGS TO ANY WELL-DIVERSIFIED RETIREMENT PORTFOLIO.
WHEN DEMAND OUTPACES ANY ASSET’S SUPPLY, THAT ASSET’S PRICE WILL RISE
Silver may be perfectly positioned to rise in price as demand has continued to increase while worldwide supplies have dwindled. This demand is being driven by technical and industrial uses, which on their own have outpaced annual silver production every year since 1990.
“Only US Government-owned more silver than JP Morgan, but that was nearly a century ago and came when silver was used in common coinage. The US Government once owned several billion ounces of silver, but today holds no silver, having completely eliminated its holdings.
Further, the US Government never held silver with the intent of seeking a profit. In contrast, the only reason JP Morgan has acquired half a billion ounces of actual silver is for the express purpose of making as much of a profit as possible.
By simple logic, JP Morgan will make the largest possible profit on its silver holdings only if the price of silver climbs to the highest level possible. “
What Makes Proof Coins So Valuable?

Which displays the Government’s guarantee of the coin’s weight, content, and purity. All proof coins come in a classic velvet presentation case.

HOW TO DIVERSIFY YOUR WEALTH
DIVERSIFY YOUR IRA, 401(K), 403(B), TSP, OR 457 PLAN WITH PHYSICAL GOLD AND SILVER
By doing so, you can achieve the same return that you would gain by purchasing gold or silver directly from Priority Gold, while also enjoying the benefits that your retirement account provides.
Traditional IRA plans that are offered by investment brokers are usually utilized to invest in paper-backed assets, such as stocks, bonds, and mutual funds. However, in these uncertain times, these types of investments could end up only being worth the paper that they’re printed on.
The recession of 2008 bankrupted many investors. However, investors who put their money in gold saw those values nearly triple. In 2011, demand for precious metals raised gold to an all-time high of over $1,900 per ounce. Silver also traded at a record-breaking high. Economic and political volatility has historically emphasized the demand for individual possession of precious metals.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q. AM I BUYING ‘PHYSICAL’ GOLD AND SILVER OR JUST ‘PAPER’ GOLD AND SILVER?
A. You are purchasing physical gold and silver that can be delivered to you or stored at a depository of your own choosing. Priority Gold can recommend several depositories that are fully insured. (Note: If precious metals are purchased with retirement funds, the precious metals must be held by a qualified custodian in a self-directed individual retirement account.)
Q. WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO START INVESTING IN PRECIOUS METALS?
A. Only you can decide the answer to this question, but if current economic policy remains in place, now could just be a great time to buy. With political uncertainty and an overheated market, gold and silver could be well-positioned to break out. A precious metals specialist at Priority Gold can help you understand all of your options.
Q. HOW MUCH OF MY PORTFOLIO SHOULD I PROTECT IN PRECIOUS METALS?
A. It depends on your circumstances. It is Priority Gold’s opinion that customers should not place more than 30% of their retirement or investment assets in precious metals, but ultimately, the decision is up to you. In general, most financial planners recommend a diversified portfolio, which means that you don’t put all of your money into any one type of investment. Beyond that, individual needs and goals will vary.
Q. CAN I ADD GOLD AND SILVER TO MY IRA?
A. Most of the time, yes. The Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997 allows individuals to add a wider variety of precious metal products to their IRAs.
