The State of Louisiana requires the imposition of sales taxes on specific items sold by ModernCoinMart and delivered to addresses within Louisiana. It is essential to ensure the collection of these taxes on (1) bullion products made of palladium or copper; (2) any coins made of copper or palladium, unless such coins are also numismatic coins; (3) any single sales transaction of numismatic coins if the total sale value is greater than $1,000; (4) accessory items; and (5) processed items.

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

  • Bullion.  Gold, silver, platinum, palladium, or a combination thereof, presented in the form of bars, ingots, or commemorative medallions, are subject to taxation based on their intrinsic metal value rather than their physical form.
  • Coins.  A coin made of gold, silver, or other metal which is or has been used as legal tender.
  • Numismatic Coins. Coins that carry an augmented external value exceeding the inherent worth of the precious metal they hold, often ascribed to factors like scarcity, quality, age, or external market forces.
  • Single Sales Transaction.  Determined per invoice, and not on a line-item basis.
  • 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.

Sales taxes in Louisiana are calculated at checkout on the ModernCoinMart website based on (1) the tax implications associated with products sold by ModernCoinMart in Louisiana, as previously outlined, and (2) the specific tax rates determined by the governing tax authority applicable to the designated delivery location within Louisiana.
