Since 2003, Birch Gold Group has been helping Americans diversify their savings with physical precious metals, including gold, silver, platinum and palladium. Customers can purchase for physical possession or they can rollover an eligible tax-deferred retirement account into a Precious Metals IRA — with zero tax implications or penalties.

Accounts that are eligible for a rollover include Traditional, Roth, SEP and SIMPLE IRAs. Additionally, many employer-sponsored retirement savings plans, such as a 401(k) and 403(b), are also eligible to be transferred to a Precious Metals IRA.

*Regardless of the vehicle used to purchase physical precious metals, customers are generally motivated by a desire to protect their savings against a volatile stock market, hedge against inflation, or safeguard against geopolitical instability.

*PLEASE NOTE: Only residents of the United States are eligible for Birch Gold’s services. Any traffic from outside of the United States will not be allowed.



The Birch Difference

With your retirement at stake, you want to be confident in the financial services companies that you work with—including whom you choose for purchasing physical precious metals.

You need to put your savings into the hands of an experienced and well-respected dealer in gold, silver and other precious metals. Sleep better at night with a proven industry leader in your corner, someone who can show you how precious metal investments can protect your lifestyle and retirement—even when the economy gets shaky (like Now!)

Birch Gold Group is that trusted leader, proudly celebrated by their customers, the industry, and major media leaders alike.


Who Comprises The Birch Gold Group?

Since 2003, Birch Gold Group has become a leading dealer of physical precious metals in the United States. Today, their dynamic team of former wealth managers, financial advisors, and commodity brokers continue to help customers diversify their portfolios with gold, silver, platinum, and palladium.

Seems fitting that they are headquartered across the street from the Warner Bros. Studios in the Golden State of California—Burbank, specifically—from where they proudly serve a diverse base of Americans from all 50 states.

Birch Gold Group is regularly featured on major news and media outlets, including the Ben Shapiro Show, where they discuss the factors that lead to market instability and cycles of growth.


The Birch Values

At Birch Gold Group, they believe in empowering our customers through knowledge.

As a customer, you will have an opportunity to express all of your objectives, motivations and concerns. You will have an opportunity to ask their great staff any question – about precious metals or our company – and they’ll essentially be an open book to you.

With this knowledge, you will act with confidence.

And before you make any decision, they will make sure you understand the options best suited to and for you, including the pros and cons of each.

Got questions? They have the answers. For example, if you’re converting an existing retirement account into a Precious Metals IRA, their own in-house IRA Department works to assist you each step of the way. They are available to answer questions like: What are the fees? Will I have to pay taxes on this rollover? Who is the custodian, and what role do they play in the IRA? What is the timing for the rollover process? How do RMDs work?


*The rigorous set of standards that we hold ourselves to include:

  • Customer Empowerment
  • Educational
  • Empathy
  • Ethical
  • Transparency
  • Efficiency

But don’t just take my word for it. You can find real testimonials from their clients at their Customer Reviews Page, like this one from Florence D.:


“I wanted to post this quick note to show my appreciation for the team at Birch Gold Group. It was a pleasure to deal with everyone there who helped me complete my first precious metal buy. I was always treated professionally and kindly. I spoke with 2 other companies that were very pushy and put quite a bit of pressure on me to buy. I never felt that way with Birch. I highly recommend this company.”


The Precious Metals IRA Specialists

Let’s face it, finding a company to help out with a conventional IRA is easy. But when it comes to Precious Metals IRAs, finding a reliable specialist is not as easy as it may seem. It’s especially difficult to find one with the knowledge you need to feel comfortable moving an IRA or 401(k) to an IRA backed by gold and silver.

If you are concerned about the dollar’s ongoing loss in value or the uncertainty of the stock market, keep in mind Birch Gold offers you access to experienced Specialists with decades of experience in Precious Metals IRAs.
