Texas - LOCAL DIRECTORY GUIDE
Texas, though it may be difficult for some Texans to see in print, is the second-largest U.S. state. It is also the second most populous. The Lone Star State gained independence from Mexico in 1836, and joined the United States just nine years later in 1845. This event precipitated the Mexican-American War. Texas has long been associated with the image of cowboys, cattle ranches and oil magnates.
Indeed, those have long been among the state’s top industries. Modest quantities of Gold and Silver have been discovered in Texas, though they never made up a major industry.
Bullion Sales Tax in Texas
In 2013, Texas passed legislation that exempted purchases of Gold, Silver, Platinum and Palladium bullion, as well as numismatic coins, from state sales tax. Prior to that, there was a 6.25% tax collected on Precious Metals purchases totaling less than $1,000, which made it difficult for investors who were looking to accumulate smaller amounts over time. HB78 amended Sec. 151.336 of the tax code and was signed into law in June 2013. It marked the first time that a state expanded an existing sales tax exemption for Precious Metals, although it has occurred since.
Local Gold and Silver Mints in Texas
Texas can claim just one mint in its vast environs, but it is an exceptional one. Mulligan Mint produces investment-grade Silver and Gold rounds as well as copper rounds. Their output is approximately 25,000 ounces per day. Founded in 2012, Mulligan Mint, sometimes called M2, has already set a standard for technologically advanced manufacturing, and is known for rounds in brilliant proof quality. M2 offers a selection of 1 and 5-ounce Silver rounds with a variety of unusual themes among other products.
