Local Gold and Silver Dealers in Columbia, MO

Columbia, Missouri, founded in 1821 and incorporated in 1826, is the home of the University of Missouri. It has the distinction of being the state’s fourth-largest city, in terms of population (122,000), and its fastest growing city.

In addition to the University of Missouri, the city is home to Stephens College and Columbia College, making the area a hub for higher education and a significant Midwestern college town.

During the time of its founding, Columbia benefited from being a stagecoach stop on the Santa Fe and Oregon trails. Later on, the city was also a stop along the Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad. Though the state remained with the Union during the American Civil War, many of its residents had loyalties to the Confederate. Union soldiers remained a base and staging area for Union soldiers, likely helping the city escape damage during the war.

Columbia’s economy is dominated primarily by education, healthcare, and insurance and had a Gross Metropolitan Product of about $6 billion after the turn of the 21st century.

Sales Tax on Gold and Silver in Columbia

The sale of bullion and investment coins are tax exempt in Missouri. The state sees bullion as silver, gold, palladium, and platinum that is at least 0.900 percent pure.

The state also considers investment coins as numismatic coins or other forms of legal tender made of silver, gold, palladium, and platinum. But it is important to remember that non-legal tender numismatic coins, paper currency, and tokens are not exempt and will be taxed.
