People sometimes feel intimidated by the task of selling a coin collection.  Many times the collection was inherited and they are not coin collectors themselves.  They will ask “where do I start?  You might start by bringing a small selection into our store.  Get a feel for the process and how we do things.  Do you feel comfortable?  We will provide you with accurate information and offer some guidance on the process of evaluating your collection.  The decision is yours.  We value honesty, integrity and our reputation.  We work hard to make it easy for you to see these values in our company.  We invite you to stop in and see us.  Please give us an opportunity to earn your business.

What Are The Laws Regarding Sales Tax On Coins?

As of January 1, 2017 the state law regarding sales tax on coins has changed — for the better.

Current Ohio law states that any coin that is made primarily of gold, silver, platinum or palladium is EXEMPT from sales and use tax.  We interpret the word “primarily” to mean more than 50%.  Please note that coins made of copper and nickel are still subject to sales tax.

Taxable items shipped to / billed to an Ohio address are subject to 6.75% State Sales Tax

Licensed dealers may fill out a BLANKET EXEMPTION CERTIFICATE and therefore be exempt from sales tax on their purchase.
