We guarantee the ability to buy and sell at 1.8% of the current wholesale market gold price. This fee includes all spreads, premiums, and commissions. No hidden fees. No gimmicks.
Our 0.4% annual maintenance fee is billed on a semi-annual basis (every January & July). We have no minimum maintenance fee. You only pay for what you store. Important note: the maintenance fee goes away as soon as you choose to take delivery of your metal.Learn More
The spread or premium represents the price of a certain gold product over gold's spot price (for example, a 1-ounce gold coin might cost $2,150 even if gold's spot price is $2,000). Gold investors typically pay a 3-15% premium on gold’s spot price in addition to transaction costs. Spreads and premiums can skyrocket during supply chain disruptions and times of high demand. Vaulted investors do not need to worry about these issues. We keep our spread close to 0 by cutting out 70% of the traditional gold supply chain. Less people take a cut of your investment, so you get the best prices every time.
Taxes are another major cost of buying gold. Gold-backed ETFs, other online gold accounts, and physical coins/bullion are taxed as collectibles in the United States, meaning they face a 28% long-term capital gains tax rate. Vaulted assets are subject to a different tax structure that may reduce your tax liability by 30-50%. Please connect with your Vaulted advisor and consult a tax professional for more details on the tax implications of your capital gains in Vaulted.
*Your Vaulted advisor can explain how Vaulted is taxed compared to other investment vehicles, however all investors should also consult a tax professional.*
