Selling gold coins anonymously?
It varies dealer by dealer, so check around. The amount that requires a check rather than cash is really more of a matter of dealers business policy, not a matter of law. Paper money is still legal tender in this country, for now....
Why the need to hide? There is no reason to as it is still legal and common to buy and sell gold. Once you begin to appear to be looking for a "sneaky" way to do things you bring suspicion onto yourself.
The lines of the rules are wide and easy to stay within without doing any damage. Anonymous or not you are legally responsible to report the sale for taxation purposes. Do not confuse reporting standards of different dealers with the duties of reporting. You are required to disclose. Period. I suggest you use other means of "trading" gold other than coins and bars as the spread and taxes make it very difficult to realize outsized gains in the ST. Stack metal for LT safety and appreciation and trade paper instruments (if you must) for ST gains. IMHO
That said I believe if you go to any gun show or coin show you can easily sell coins with little paperwork and for cash. You can also accept a check and simply cash it at the issuers bank with proper ID.
From the last post "You can also accept a check and simply cash it at the issuers bank with proper ID."
You can get segregated and insured gold and silver storage at First State Depository for less than you would normally pay for unallocated storage. First State charges 60 basis points for segregated insured storage (10 basis point for storage within a precious metals IRA). I refer my customers to First State and they have been very satisfied with the service. Here is a link to their website: http://www.fsdepository.com/Vault/
Also, just an FYI; If you decide to store your bullion in your house - first of all don't tell anyone - but you also need to be aware that most, if not all Homeowners Insurance policies do not cover theft of bullion or only cover up to a minimum amount such as $1000. The cheapest way to get insurance on your gold and silver bullion is to have it stored on your behalf at a secure facility such as First State Depository, where the cost of storage includes the cost of insurance.
Any questions - please feel free to contact me. A link to my website with contact information is below. Likewise, if you have better storage suggestions, please share.
