Former U.S. Mint Director Talks Gold and IRAs on CNNMoney

The former director of the U.S. Mint, Philip N. Diehl, will be discussing, gold, exclusive coins, and Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs) on CNNMoney at 3:00 PM EST, Monday, March 7. The segment will discuss why gold has been soaring over the past 30+ days, creating a near-bull market. Bloomberg has even said gold is the best-performing major asset of 2016, having surged more than 16% since the start of the year.

Considering the current state of the gold market and many analysts predicting gold to rise in the future, many buyers are wondering about the merits of a Precious Metals IRA vs a traditional IRA. Self-Directed Precious Metals IRAs are up and can be one of the best performing, most secure forms of retirement accounts. Diehl will discuss whether IRA holders should consider adding legal tender, government-issued gold coins to their asset mix.

Some of the types of assets that qualify for a Self-Directed IRA are precious metals from U.S. Money Reserve purchased through the Gold Standard IRA Program. Other assets that qualify to be held in IRAs are the new 75th Anniversary Pearl Harbor Gold and Silver Bullion Coins from U.S. Money Reserve. These IRA-approved gold and silver bullion coins include 1 oz. gold bullion coins, 1/10 oz. gold bullion coins, and 1 oz. silver bullion coins. U.S. Money Reserve has the worldwide exclusive of this coin series, including the first 24-karat gold coin ever minted in honor of Pearl Harbor.

Lone Sailor Statue at Pearl Harbor Benefits from Purchase

U.S. Money Reserve is partnering with the U.S. Navy Memorial Foundation to install a Lone Sailor Statue at Pearl Harbor. This is made possible by the fact that a portion of the proceeds from every Pearl Harbor Coin will go toward the Lone Sailor Statue at Pearl Harbor. The Lone Sailor Statue is proposed to be constructed with metal from the USS Arizona, and will honor members of the armed services by calling upon the timeless values of the U.S. Navy: honor, courage, and commitment.
