The State of Utah requires the imposition of sales taxes on specific items sold by ModernCoinMart and delivered to addresses within Utah. It is essential to ensure the collection of these taxes on (1) bullion products made of copper or palladium; (2) bullion products made of gold, silver, or platinum if the gold, silver, or platinum content of such product is less than 50%; (3) numismatic coins unless such numismatic coins are also used as legal tender; (4) accessory items; and (5) 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 Utah:

  • Legal Tender.  Coins that must be accepted if offered in payment of a debt.
  • Bullion.  Precious metal that is valued solely upon its precious metal content, whether in coin or bar form.
  • 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.
  • 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 Utah are calculated at checkout on the ModernCoinMart website based on (1) the tax implications associated with products sold by ModernCoinMart in Utah as previously outlined, and (2) the specific tax rates determined by the governing tax authority applicable to the designated delivery location within Utah.
