Independent research shows that 7.5 to 12.5 million Americans now invest in precious metals; these investors are generally college-educated professionals with above average incomes. The same research indicates that individuals who have purchased precious metals, as well as those who plan to do so in the future, prefer to make these purchases from their bank or other trusted financial institution.

Then the dealer works with your IRA custodian to settle the transaction.
Most financial programs display the futures price or spot price of gold, silver, platinum and palladium.  Dealers quote the current bid/ask price at that particular moment in time for a specific product and the cost of that product includes manufacturing costs, and supply and demand premiums. The dealer quote may also include delivery, insurance, and sales charges.

Bullion coins are produced in mass quantities by government mints and are legal tender in their country of origin. Bullion coins sell for a small premium over their intrinsic (or spot) metal value. Bullion coin prices move, in tandem, with the price fluctuations of the underlying commodity (i.e., gold, silver, platinum or palladium).

Rare or “numismatic” coins are collected and valued for their scarcity, individual beauty, uniqueness or historical significance. Special collectible qualities can potentially render rare coins far more valuable in the marketplace than the value of any gold or silver that they may contain.
