Named for the Mississippi River, which flows along the western edge of the state, the southern state of Mississippi is comprised entirely of lowlands. Heavily forested outside of the Mississippi Delta area, the state’s rich soil has made Mississippi an agriculture center known for its production of cotton, pecans, and catfish.
Mississippi does not exempt sales of coins, paper currency, or precious metals from sales tax requirements. As a result, any purchases of such items made in the state will be subject to sales tax. The current Mississippi sales tax rate is 7%. Some cities and counties add a local sales tax; the highest tax rate in the state is currently 9%.
Despite these relatively high taxes, physical gold and silver remain a popular investment option within the state, and there are a number of notable coin dealers serving Mississippi collectors and investors. Still, if you plan to purchase gold or silver for investment purposes, be sure to factor in these taxes when calculating your total costs.
