The State of Alabama requires the application of a flat-rate Simplified Sellers Use Tax, set at 8%, on designated items sold by ModernCoinMart and delivered to an Alabama address. Taxes are collected on (1) copper products; (2) numismatic coins; (3) accessory items; and (4) processed items.  All other products sold by ModernCoinMart are exempt from these taxes.

The following definitions apply to items that are subject to state tax collection in Alabama:

  • Accessory Items.  Items such as holders, tubes, coin flips, and apparel.
  • Processed Items. Processed precious metals, altered by third-party entities to create items valued for attributes beyond their intrinsic metal content, such as embellished coins or sculptures.
