In a Precious Metals IRA, do I actually own the physical metals or do I just get certificates?

When you open a Precious Metals IRA with Lear Capital, you will be the proud owner of the actual physical metals you purchased. All of your hard assets are securely stored at a state-of-the-art, IRS-approved, insured private storage facility. Once you are age-eligible to take a mandatory distribution, you can choose to either take physical possession of your metals or liquidate your assets (in the appropriate amount, as determined by the IRS rules).
