Are There Taxes on Buying Gold and Silver Bullion in New York?
There is an exemption for buying gold, silver, and platinum bullion in New York. The product must meet the specified criteria, and the purchase price must meet the minimum threshold of $1,000. Bullion which is considered exempt must be precious metal bullion (gold, silver, platinum, or palladium), and the value of the product must come from the metal itself, and not its form.
The product value of silver bullion coins cannot exceed 140% of the current silver spot price, 120% of the gold spot price for gold coins, and 115% of the spot price for other metals. Exempt bullion must be in the form of bullion bars, rounds, or coins. One important exception is made: coins from the Republic of South Africa are not exempted, including the famous gold Krugerrand. The law spelling out the New York sales tax exemption can be read here:
Please note that numismatic coins, paper currency, tokens, medallions, and gold and silver bullion products which does not meet the stated criteria are all subject to the New York sales tax rate of 4%. Local taxes, such as those in New York City, can raise this rate even further. The $1,000 minimum purchase price is also prohibitive for many buyers who are looking to invest in gold and silver in New York.

Rather uniquely, reminiscent of being in Dubai or Abu Dhabi, Stack's Bowers features a gold vending machine, named "Gold to Go."

United States Mint - West Point Branch
An official branch of the United States Mint since 1988, the West Point branch is a secure location. Its address is not given to the public, and no public tours are given. At one time, the West Point branch held the highest amount of stored silver bullion of any US Mint branch. For many years, the West Point mint manufactured circulation coinage, especially pennies. Many of these coins bear no mint mark, while some are stamped with a "W" mint mark, even though, at that time, West Point was not an official US mint. It is notable that coins produced here that have no mint mark are indistinguishable from similar coins produced at the Philadelphia US Mint branch.
In 1984, the West Point branch produced a legal tender $10 gold coin, to commemorate the Los Angeles Olympic Games. This unique gold coin was the first legal tender United States gold coin since the 1933 series of US Gold Eagles. Starting in 1986, during the onset of the US Mint gold bullion program, the West Point, NY branch manufactured American Gold Eagle coins.
Today, all US Mint gold and silver bullion coins are produced at the West Point, New York branch. In addition, all US Mint commemorative gold coins, and many commemorative silver coins are also made here. Starting in 2006, the American Gold Buffalo bullion coins are also produced here. Most gold and silver bullion coins made by the West Point branch have no mint mark, though most of the commemorative silver and gold coins feature the "W" mint mark.
