Gold IRAs

A Gold IRA refers to a self-directed individual retirement account that permits you as an individual to own physical precious metals in a prescribed manner. Developed during 1997 by Congress, this type of IRA permits the investor to own physical precious metals such as gold, platinum, palladium, and silver as opposed to assets that are paper-based such as stocks, bonds, and cash. To qualify as a Gold IRA, certain criteria for the precious metals must be met. The bars or coins need to meet the IRA fineness standards. The bars or coins must be held by an IRA trustee. They must be stored in an approved depository.

Diversifying with a Gold IRA, your investment portfolio will transform your retirement plan into a very stable position. The rise in the price of gold since January 2016 has revived the way people view this metal. Gold IRAs keep you from worrying about stashed bars and bullion coins in your closets or home safes.

THE CONSULTATION:

Let’s talk about you. Your goals. Your experience. Your expectations.

We discuss with our clients:

  • Do you already own precious metals?
  • What is asset mix you hold in your investments?
  • What assets or what amount of money are you interested in converting to precious metals?
  • Do you have tax losses or gains to consider?
  • Are you interested in holding coins for their intrinsic worth, beauty, and interest; or are you interested in holding precious metals as a commodity whose value will fit into your portfolio mix?
  • Are you seeking a one-time-only purchase, or a plan for more investments over time, and in what timeframe?

THEN, WE LOOK AT VARIOUS OPTIONS:

Now we are ready to discuss possible purchase options, taking into account what we have discussed so far and the current state of the markets and economy projections.

If you wish to proceed after we assess your goals and weigh them against current market projections and the present state of the economy, we move to the actual purchase phase. The purchase is “locked in” by verbal agreement between the client and Encore Gold. This agreement contains all the specifics of what is being purchased (or sold) and the pricing. At this point, this agreement is a binding contract and both the client and Encore Gold are required to perform their parts of the agreement.

As part of the verbal agreement, the method and timing of funding, and details of the delivery, will be made clear.

Encore Gold immediately acts to finalize the transaction, per the client’s directions. We also document the agreement with clear and accurate invoicing ,forwarding this to the client as soon as possible.

The client funds the transaction as agreed and Encore Gold confirms the funding has been received. Depending on the type of funding, Encore Gold notifies the customer when they can expect the delivery to take place.

We confirm delivery with every client, both verbally and via email, with the specific shipping method and corresponding registration numbers.

Encore Gold follows up with the client to make certain that all aspects of the transaction were met to the client’s specifications.

Gold IRA FAQ’s

Selling to Encore Gold

Existing clients of Encore Gold are asked to contact the company in via email or by phone for assistance.

Please contact us by email or phone for assistance with liquidating your precious metals before mailing any valuables to Encore Gold. From there, we can discuss your desire to sell in detail, and offer valuable advice and assistance.

Remember: the selling process critical, just like the original purchase itself. Please keep in mind that what your payment can vary greatly from dealer to dealer. We can help you navigate the options to your benefit.

Encore Gold will happily assist you in selling part or all your collection. If you find yourself in the position of selling your precious metals or coins, please take a few minutes to review the following procedures and guidelines.

REQUIRED INFORMATION

The following instructions are written for precious metal coins, but can be applied to other materials and products, such as bars and krugerrands.
Please provide the following information for each coin:

  • Description
  • Year minted
  • Mintmark
  • Grade
  • Note: Please do NOT send any coins to Encore without first receiving a trade number acknowledging that we can help you and would like to see your coins for possible purchase.

THE PACKING LISTS

Create a packing list containing the following information.

  • Your name
  • Your mailing address
  • Your day-time and evening telephone numbers
  • A complete inventory list of what you are sending
    Note: If you are sending multiple boxes, you can use one master inventory list. We recommend that you include a copy of the master inventory list in all boxes, and highlight the contents of each box individually.
  • Keep a copy for yourself until we either pay you or ship your coins back to you.

PACKAGING YOUR SHIPMENT

Please complete these important steps in order to ensure the highest levels of safe shipping.

  • Secure your coins inside the box so they will not rattle around and damage each other in transit. Fill up empty space in the box with crumpled newspaper, paper towels, or packaging peanuts if necessary.
  • Include your packing list(s).
  • Secure the outside of your package with reinforced filament tape to ensure it doesn’t open in transit. Don’t use Scotch tape or other non-reinforced tapes.
  • After securing your box with reinforced filament tape, you must then wrap the outside of your package entirely with brown paper tape. This is the kind with the glue on the back that must be moistened for application. The Post Office will stamp the outside tape seams with an official Day/Date stamp, proving that it was received by the postal clerk in good order. This is also to indicate that the package has not been tampered with during shipment.

SHIPPING COINS TO ENCORE

  • Use only Registered Mail via the U.S. Postal Service.
  • Your package is held under lock and key separate from regular mail, and is signed for at every step of the way until we pick it up at the post office. We’ve shipped and received thousands of packages, and have yet to lose one.
  • Insure the package for full value. In order to protect your investment, Encore will provide you with an approximate value to insure the shipment for at the time you receive a trade number. Encore can have each package insured to a limit of $75,000.00.
  • DO NOT send coins via UPS, FedEx, DHL, or other private delivery services. These carriers will not properly insure the contents of your package. If your package becomes lost or stolen, you have little recourse with carriers other than U.S. Registered Mail.
  • Address your package to:Encore
    PO Box 4582
    Portland, OR 97208Note: Using “Encore Gold” instead of simply “Encore” could invite unwanted attention on your shipment.
  • Complete the Registered and Insured Mail forms.
    Carefully include the following information on the U.S. Registered Mail declarations form:

    • Your name and mailing address
    • Our name and mailing address
    • The declared insurance value
      –Check the little box that reads, “with postal insurance,” and declare the full value of your coins.

Important: You MUST declare the full value of the package for insurance purposes, but DO NOT identify the contents of the package. You are not required to identify the contents of your packages. In the extremely rare event that your package is lost or stolen, the declared value is the maximum amount of money the post office will reimburse to you. The postal worker will assign a Registered Mail shipment number to the package and inform you of the charges. The receipt is your proof of shipment and insurance in the event of loss.

THE SELLING APPRAISAL:

When your package arrives at our post office, we sign for it to confirm its delivery, examine its contents, then call you within 1-2 business days with an assessment of your coins and our purchase offer.

If you accept our offer, Encore will issue a company check and/or a bank wire to you within 1-2 bank business days.

If you do not accept our offer, Encore will send your coins back to you by U.S. Registered Mail, insured for full value, at no charge. Your coins will be shipped back to you within 1-2 business days.
