What gold coins are not reportable?

Gold and silver bars of 1 kilogram or 1000 troy ounces also require archiving. Selling American Gold Eagle coins does not require the filing of Form 1099-B. However, not all purchases or sales of precious metals need to be documented and reported. With Bullion Exchanges, you can learn to sell and buy gold and silver tax-free without losing your privacy, as well as invest IRA in gold. Keep in mind that IRS reporting requirements may vary by state and change.

Therefore, always check the information where you live before buying. Not long ago, I received an email from a person who was told by a so-called “IRA specialist” that he should put Proof Gold Eagles in his IRA account and avoid regularly issued Gold Eagles, because the latter were reportable and the former did not comply with government regulations. Gold and silver bars may attract unwanted attention or require special statements for monetary instruments, but a gold necklace is, well, just another gold necklace. Don't fund your precious metals IRA with fractionated gold or silver, as they are also unnecessarily expensive.

These pieces include, among others, gold coins with fractional denominations; American Eagle gold or silver coins; any piece of foreign currency that has not been explicitly mentioned in the IRS's list of reportable items, as well as U.S. currencies that were created after the list was created in the 1980s.
