Local Gold and Silver Dealers in Roanoke, VA

Roanoke is an independent city in the U.S. state of Virginia, located in the Roanoke Valley of the Roanoke Region of Virginia. The 2010 Census put its population at an estimated 97,032 men, women and children, occupying its 43 square miles.

The town got its first name – Big Lick – because of a large salt lick that existed there. A salt lick is a deposit of salts where animals go to lick essential mineral nutrients. It was first settled in 1852 and granted a charter in 1874. The name was changed to Roanoke in 1882 and in 1884 was chartered as the independent city of Roanoke. The name “Roanoke” derives from a native Indian word for shell money.

Roanoke has risen from its humble beginnings. It is now a center for transportation, distribution, trade, manufacturing, health care, entertainment, recreation, attractions, and conventions. It has been nicknamed "Festival City" because of the many festivals held there. They include the Festival in the Park, the Roanoke GO Outside Festival, the Henry Street Festival, the Virginia Championship Chili Cook-off, and the Strawberry Festival.

The city houses the 100-foot-high illuminated steel and concrete structure, known as the Roanoke Star constructed as a "symbol of the friendliness, industrial and civic progress of Roanoke."

Sales Tax on Gold and Silver in Roanoke

Sales tax in the state of Virginia is currently 4.3%. Local jurisdictions may apply a tax, which can make the total rate as high as 7.0%. For example, there is no city tax in zip code 24000. However, starting on January 1, 2019, and running through June 30, 2022, sales of precious metals that exceed $1,000 are exempted from the tax.

The law states that sales tax “shall not apply to the following... gold, silver or platinum bullion or legal tender coins whose sales price exceeds $1,000. Each piece of gold, silver, or platinum or legal tender coin need not exceed $1,000, provided that the sales price of one entire transaction of such pieces exceeds $1,000." However, sales tax will apply to sales of precious metals, where the entire transaction is less than $1,000.
