    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 does Patriot Gold Group do?

    Patriot Gold Group is a precious metals dealer that offers a collection of gold and silver coins and bars, plus self-directed precious metals IRAs. It lets clients have a direct working relationship with one of the company's owners, and it can set up new IRAs in as little as 24 hours.

    Patriot Gold Group products and services

    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 benefits

    Opening an IRA with Patriot Gold Group has several potential benefits:

    • There are no fees for life on qualifying IRAs. That means the company reimburses rollover, storage and insurance fees on accounts of a certain size.
    • Applications can be completed online, though you can also call to speak with a Patriot Gold Group representative to learn more about the process.
    • While purchases aren’t available online, you can add gold and silver products to a quote tool on Patriot’s website to simplify the process.

    Patriot Gold Group costs

    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. There is also a minimum investment requirement of $50,000.

    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.

      I spent many months learning about the precious metals investment market and researched many providers. You would be surprised at the variation between vendors. Many have high fees, annual fees, contractual requirements. I recommend everyone do their selection of provider very carefully. By the time I contacted Patriot Gold I was quite skeptical having dealt various other companies understanding their purchase price vs spot price and storage fees, and all other details.

      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!

      I rolled my IRA into precious metals with Patriot Gold. Chase and Mike were a huge help taking their time to answer my questions and guide me through the process. Several months later I received a follow up call from Kelly to make sure I was happy with my experience with them. I'm very pleased with Patriot Gold.

      Both the support from my sales rep and trader has made it easy to establish a metals IRA and actually fund and secure investments. Tim and Andy are always helpful in getting things done. When looking for investment options Andy always has a few options from which I can made an informed decision to purchase. Having a prior investment option allows me to evaluate options and make the best choice. The options represented are always reasonable and not something a trader is looking to unload.

      I worked with Frank ** at Patriot Gold. It was my first precious metals purchase so I had newbie questions. Frank was patient, answered all my questions, and I verified the answers separately and he conveyed everything correctly and honestly. It was a pleasure doing business with him.

      All question were answered clear and in a timely manner. When I called they responded right away. When I left a message they called back right away with correct answer. Andrew explained the difference between buying precious coins versus bars and how the coins out performed the bars. He was really helpful.
