Hi Erika, apologies for not replying to you sooner. It really depends on how much you want to invest. Goldco has a lower minimum amount of $25,000, with Augusta I believe it’s $50,000. Regarding the fees, Augusta is a bit better. I also like the fact that they work with trusted US depositories. They recommend a Delaware depository; however, they work with many across the country.
I also know their preferred custodian is Equity Trust, which is great but not cheap.
If you’re savvy investor, go with Augusta, if you’re a beginner and it’s your first precious metals IRA investment, Goldco is great.
I wanted to share my personal experience as a client and explain why I firmly believe Augusta Precious Metals is the superior gold IRA company compared to Goldco. I had an outstanding experience with Augusta Precious Metals, and here’s why I highly recommend them. I was contacted by goldco but they were too pushy for me.
