Texas is home to many excellent coin and precious metal bullion dealers. In Houston, you’ll find coin shops both in the city center and in the suburbs, specializing in rare historical coins and in bullion for precious metal investment.
Keep in mind that in Texas, there is sales tax on 8.25% on purchases of coins and bullion unless the total purchase price is at least $1,000, in which case the sale is exempt from the tax. If the purchase includes U.S. coins, the face value of the U.S. coins may be substracted from the sales price when determining taxes owed.
Because of these regulations, when buying silver from a Houston coin shop, it is best to buy at least $1,000 in coins at a time, or focus on U.S. coins and bullion, in order to avoid the tax.
