IRS Disclaimer


In compliance with Internal Revenue Code Sections 408(m)(3)(B) and (n), Preserve Gold does not recommend home storage for precious metals held by an LLC.

Precious Metals IRA and Home Delivery Disclaimer: 

There is no assurance that commodities, i.e. precious metals, will achieve their objectives. Return and principal value will fluctuate and your portfolio, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than the original cost. No statement, presentation, article, or any other communication available in this material is to be construed as a recommendation to purchase or sell a security or service, or to provide investment, legal, accounting or tax advice. 

Preserve Gold is a seller and purchaser of Precious Metals. While Preserve Gold is always prepared to compare and contrast the different Precious Metals that are available for purchase or that Preserve Gold is willing to purchase, Customer acknowledges and agrees that (i) no fiduciary relationship exists between Preserve Gold and Customer, (ii) the decision to purchase or sell Precious Metals, and which Precious Metals to purchase or sell, are the Customer’s decision alone, and (iii) purchases or sales are made subject to Customer’s own prudence and judgment.

In Preserve Gold’s opinion, Precious Metals should be considered a long-term investment. Customer should be prepared to hold any Precious Metals purchased – whether from Preserve Gold or elsewhere – for at least a three to five year period, and preferably five to ten years, to maximize the potential for gains. In Preserve Gold’s opinion, Customer should only invest capital that can be held for at least this period of time.  However, Precious Metals, like all investments, carry capital risk. Precious Metals may appreciate, depreciate, or stay the same depending on a variety of factors. Preserve Gold cannot guarantee, and makes no representation, that the Precious Metals will appreciate at all or appreciate sufficiently to make Customer a profit at the expiration of this or any other period of time.

In Preserve Gold’s opinion, Customer should not invest more than twenty percent (20%) of Customer’s available investment funds in Precious Metals. Moreover, Precious Metals do not yield income and thus are not an appropriate investment vehicle for investors seeking current or future income.

All investments carry risk. The success of an investment in Precious Metals is dependent, in part, upon extrinsic economic forces including but not limited to supply, demand, international monetary conditions, and inflation or the expectation of inflation. The impact of these forces on the values of Precious Metals in general or any particular Precious Metal cannot be predicted. Customer acknowledges that the Precious Metals market can be volatile and that Precious Metal prices may rise or fall over time, meaning that  the value of your metals may go up and down over time and  you may sell for  more  or less than you paid. This is not an exhaustive list of risks, so feel free to do additional research.

Past performance does not guarantee future results. Predictions regarding the future value of precious metals cannot be made with certainty. Preserve Gold cannot guarantee, assure, or promise future market movement, prices or profits.

No tax or legal advice:

Preserve Gold Group does not provide tax, investment, or legal advice or advisory services, and no one associated with Preserve Gold is authorized to provide any such advice or services. Preserve Gold cannot provide tax or legal advice and will not advise as to the tax or legal consequences of purchasing or selling precious metals or opening a self-directed IRA.

Preserve Gold Group makes no representations regarding the tax consequences of holding Precious Metals as an investment in an IRA. Customer expressly acknowledges that Customer has been advised to seek independent tax advice, from a qualified professional, regarding the tax consequences of such an investment.

Preserve Gold and Preserve Gold representatives are precious metals specialists, not licensed financial advisors, and do not give financial advice. Any written or oral statements by Preserve Gold, its officers, agents, sales representatives, or other representatives relating to future events or the attributes of certain Precious Metals are opinions only. Such statements, if any, are not representations of fact.

Preserve Gold Group’s sales representatives are commissioned salespersons – i.e., their salary is based, at least in part, on the amount and profit margin of the Precious Metals they sell. In addition, from time to time, Preserve Gold Group sales representatives may receive other compensation tied to sales activity – e.g., sales contests; bonuses tied to the sale of certain denominations/types or grades of Precious Metals. Preserve Gold Group sales representatives are not licensed and their knowledge of Precious Metals and the Precious Metals marketplace varies markedly.

This website and sales materials are general in nature and not tailored to the specific goals of any individual. It is up to you to educate yourself, consider all risks relating to your purchase, and seek financial advice, if needed.  Customers should consult an attorney or tax advisor for specific tax or legal advice. Commodities involve risk and are not suitable for all investors.


Preserve Gold is not a grading service. Preserve Gold Group purchases Precious Metals for re-sale to its customers. Preserve Gold Group is not a grading service. Preserve Gold Group does not independently assess the Precious Metals it purchases for re-sale, but relies upon the opinions and assessments of independent grading services such as Professional Coin Grading Service, Inc., Premium Guaranty Corporation of America, and ANACAS. Grading is a subjective process and it is not uncommon for grading services, or individual examiners within the same grading service, to reach different conclusions regarding the appropriate grade for a particular Precious Metal. Moreover, grading standards are constantly evolving. Preserve Gold Group does not guarantee that the Precious Metals it sells will achieve the same grades in the future. In selling graded Precious Metals, Preserve Gold Group warrants that the Precious Metal is genuine (i.e., not a counterfeit) and states that the grade is as opined by the grading service when graded by that service.

Grading is subjective. Grading is a subjective determination. Grading is an art, not a science. While numerical grading may give the impression of precision, the numbers in fact represent a nuanced opinion that even experts cannot consistently and systematically agree upon. The grade reflects the opinion of the cataloger (or grader) as to the state of preservation, method of strike, and overall appearance of a particular Precious Metal or lot.

Terminology. The term “proof” or “specimen” is used to describe a method of manufacture. Those terms do not connote a grade, condition or attribution.

Cleaning/Toning. Preserve Gold Group does not represent that a Precious Metal has or has not been cleaned, that any toning is natural or artificial, that a Precious Metal has a particular provenance or pedigree, that a Precious Metal is struck or not struck, that a Precious Metal is produced or not produced in a particular manner or style, and/or that a different grading service (or even a different grader within the same grading service) would assign the same grade now or in the future to the same Precious Metal.

Acknowledgment. Where Preserve Gold Group sells a Precious Metal that is encapsulated by a grading service and bears the grade or condition ascribed to it by the grading service, Customer acknowledges and agrees that other grading services or knowledgeable purchasers might reach a different conclusion as to the item’s grade. Customer further acknowledges that Preserve Gold Group has provided the grader’s description for the customer’s information and makes no warranty as to its accuracy or the standards used to determine that grade.
