Gold and other precious metal IRAs are an investment and carry risk. Consumers should be alert to claims that customers can make a lot of money in these or any investment with little risk. As with any investment, you can lose money and past performance is not a guarantee of future performance results. Consumers should also obtain a clear understanding of the fees associated with any investment before agreeing to invest.
What is Patriot Gold Group?
Patriot Gold Group is a precious metals dealer based in Seal Beach, California, with several decades of experience. It offers a collection of gold and silver coins and bars, plus self-directed precious metal IRAs.
Clients have a direct working relationship with one of the company's owners, and you can set up a new IRA in as little as 24 hours.
How does Patriot Gold Group work?
You can purchase gold and silver through the company as either a physical investment or as a retirement account addition. To get started, you can complete an application online, or you can also call to speak with a Patriot Gold Group representative to learn more about the process.

Patriot Gold Group products
Patriot Gold Group sells gold and silver coins and bars that you can have delivered to your home or invested in a precious metal IRA. There are also references to platinum and palladium on the company’s website, though it doesn’t seem to offer any products in these metals at the time of publishing.
More than 25 gold and silver coin options are available from Patriot Gold Group, including bullion coins, private coins, proof coins and IRA-eligible coins. The IRS has purity requirements for any precious metals held in an IRA, so only approved products can be used to take advantage of an IRA’s tax benefits.
Patriot Gold Group pricing
Patriot Gold doesn’t list prices online for its gold and silver products. You have to call, email or chat online with a representative to find out the current value of each coin or bar.
The company doesn’t detail its IRA fees online, but accounts below the no-fees-for-life limit have to pay for rollovers, storage and insurance every year for eligible IRAs. If your IRA account doesn’t meet certain minimum requirements, it’s subject to additional fees. There is also a minimum investment requirement of $50,000.

Kristen accurately, patiently and with great knowledge reviewed ALL my options in moving my assets into Gold and Silver. She helped me diversify my portfolio into gold and silver for both short term and long term asset management. This was my first foray into the precious metals and Kristen’s expertise confirmed that I made the right decision in choosing Patriot Gold Group.
Lois, we are elated you had a 5-star experience here at Patriot Gold Group. Thank you for your wonderful response.

I had no experience or hard knowledge in dealing with precious metals. I only knew that I wanted to get away from the stock market and this was a viable solution with physical assets. Once I made the initial inquiry, Ron ** led me through the entire process in layman’s terms, made me feel comfortable, and was available anytime with any questions. Once the 401k transfer process was completed I was set up with Frank for purchasing my assets. This was where I was really inept. He could not tell me what to buy but guided me the best he was by law able to.
It has been over 5 months since completion and I am much more knowledgeable. Even now, I would not change my assets percentage. I know it may not be the highest rate of return but given the current market and an overall unpleasant life experience with the stock market, my money is now safe. This company and the individuals therein have genuinely had my best interests at heart from the beginning. Completely satisfied!

Having been a successful traditional IRA investor for nearly 40 yrs, it was very difficult for me to consider rolling over my IRA into a money metals IRA; however, given the current declining trajectory of our global economic affairs, I wanted to explore this option to protect my assets. From the first day, Matt ** provided me with outstanding customer care in this decision-making process. Never once did I feel pressure. He was very patient, kind, friendly, informative, and professional with me throughout the process and was very knowledgeable in this regard. I genuinely felt that he had my personal interests at heart. And I appreciate knowing that I can continue to call him at any time with any questions or concerns I might have regarding my money metals IRA in the future. He has always returned my calls and made me feel like I was his only customer that day. Thank you Patriot Gold and Matt ** for putting my mind at ease.

When I was in the market to buy gold, I did research on companies that had excellent ratings and found out that excellent ratings alone are not enough when deciding which company to go with, one of the issues I found with a couple of companies was that they offered upfront incentives, like free coins etc, but this turned out to be nothing more than a bait & switch, the coins they offered were restricted to a limited selection & after they add their markups the buyer is not really getting anything FREE!!!
I'm very happy that I choose Patriot Group because Kristin ** was very easy to work with, had excellent knowledge and was easy to contact when required. In the future we may be interested in buying more metals & if so Patriot & Kristin ** will be our top choice when we are ready. Even though we were told that we would be added to a raffle for free gold, once we gave a review, we still would have given a 5 star review w/o any raffle.

Patriot Gold was straight forward "contract" free. Everything they said and committed to, was followed up in writing.
Any concerns I voiced came with specific reassurances. Opening my account and making my investment was my decision. Patriot Gold personnel made it easy for first timers and gave assistance and follow up as you would expect from a top notch organization. I am very comfortable, I found one of the most cost efficient and trustworthy precious metal custodians for my amount of investment.
Thank you for your kind words, William! It is our pleasure to provide you with the best service possible. We hope you stick with Patriot Gold Group for all of your future metals needs.

Up until 2020 we were flying high with our 401K's and other investments. We've both been retired for a few years. We saved, planned well (or so we thought) and we had more than enough to enjoy a comfortable retirement and to pass on assets to family. Then came this word salad of an economic policy and we were concerned. We've been gold owners for quite a long time, but had never considered a gold IRA. While investment growth is still preferred, for us now maintaining and protecting our wealth is most important. I did quite a bit of research online and felt that Patriot Gold Group was a good match for us. We worked with Mike ** and he was there during the whole process. The instructions on how to move funds from a 401K to Patriot were excellent and their back room was very efficient. In fact, the only stumbling blocks we experienced were in moving funds out of a federal employee 401K! (Imagine that!) We highly recommend!
It is great to hear that our sales reps and back office provided you with excellent service, Cheri. Thank you for choosing Patriot Gold Group!
