Millennium Trust Announces Expanded Precious Metals IRA Program

OAK BROOK, IL--(Marketwire - May 20, 2010) -   Millennium Trust Company is pleased to announce the launch of its enhanced Precious Metals program. Investors wishing to further diversify their retirement portfolios with tangible assets such as gold, silver, platinum and palladium will benefit from this program.

Millennium Trust's new Precious Metals IRA is designed exclusively to hold certain coins, bars and rounds of gold, platinum, silver and palladium in IRAs at very low costs to the investor. Annual combined asset holding and account administration fees for Precious Metals IRAs will cost $100 after account setup and transaction fees. The only additional fees will be the depository fee for the safekeeping of the metals and shipping and handling charges associated with purchases or sales of metals in the IRA account.

Since the physical nature of precious metals coins and bars requires specialized handling and safekeeping, Millennium Trust has selected Delaware Depository Service Company ( to provide safekeeping of the physical metals held in its Precious Metals IRAs. Delaware Depository is a full service depository with extensive experience in safekeeping precious metals assets held in IRAs. The Depository is licensed by the New York Mercantile Exchange, New York Commodity Exchange and is approved by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission.

"Since many investors interested in precious metals will be self directing their retirement investing, it is important to perform due diligence on precious metals dealers before directing your custodian to complete the purchase on behalf of the IRA," states Scott McCartan, CEO of Millennium Trust. "The U.S. Mint and American Numismatic Association are good sources of consumer education on precious metals investing."

Precious Metals IRA accounts with Millennium Trust are now being accepted. For more information on the program, visit
