Breaking Down Bullion Sales Tax in Colorado

Colorado exempts sales tax on sales of any precious metals like gold, silver, platinum, or palladium coins and bullion. Although this does not apply to all precious metals, it does cover a wide variety of coins and investment grade bullion minted by the US Mint and other world mints. All those precious metal products with high purity which are sold for the purposes of collection or investment are also exempted from the sales tax in Colorado. However, numismatic pieces such as paper money, tokens, checks, wampum and similar items which are specified as an exception do not fall under this exemption.
