New information in response to our request for new sites and new information: 


​Collecting precious metal coins is different from just about every other type of investment or collection you can imagine-but it is one of the more popular ones, gaining traction continually.  During an interview with Larry King years ago, Ian Russell, founder of Great Collections Coin Auctions, estimated that there are likely more than 10 million coin collectors in the U.S. alone.  With the price of gold hitting its all-time high in 2020, that number is likely even larger.  You might think coin collections are subject to the same tax considerations as stocks or art collections. Nothing could be further from the truth. Too often, owners or heirs discover confusing and punishing taxes when they liquidate coin collections. According to IRS regulations, precious metal coins are handled differently than other sorts of collections.  And coin collections are only one part of this puzzle. Savers looking for the best way to invest in the precious metals themselves might find that opening a retirement account works best for them. This too comes with a differently looking tax picture when it comes time to sell.  As you can see, there are plenty of tax considerations that every one of these 10-million-plus collectors must educate themselves on. Whether you are new to coin collecting or a life-long coin enthusiast, this guide should help answer those questions and provide a resource.

Please note: While this guide represents the culmination of dozens of hours of research, and we have taken every effort to ensure accuracy, it should not be considered legal or tax advice. This guide is for information purposes only. We do not provide tax advice as each person’s situation is different.  Readers should consult a qualified tax professional for advice specific to their situation. We hope this guide can help you ask the correct questions when you consult professional advisors.
