View Full Version : Perth Mint Certificates: Delivery and Taxation

08-28-07, 02:43 PM
Can anyone help?

The question is: If you have an unallocated gold bullion certificate, can you take delivery of the ounces in the form of coin without triggering a taxable event in the US?

I know that I can pay the various costs to Perth and have them ship the coins to me, but does the IRS view that as a sale and purchase or not?

Any ideas?
