The New England state of New Hampshire was the first colony to break away from Great Britain and one of the thirteen original colonies forming the United States. Its motto, “Live Free or Die,” is a reference to the revolutionary period. The state’s nickname, “The Granite State,” refers to the extensive granite quarries found here.
New Hampshire also has some of the largest ski mountains in the region. Historically, small quantities of gold have been mined throughout the state, though there are currently no active gold or silver mining operations.
New Hampshire does not have a sales tax (http://www.revenue.nh.gov/faq/index.htm). As such, any purchases of coins, paper currency, or precious metals made here are tax-free. This factor has made New Hampshire a leading location of coin shows, and there are also many coin dealers throughout the state who take advantage of this tax-free status. New Hampshire is among the only states where no form of coin, currency, or bullion is taxable, making it an excellent destination for those investing in gold and silver.
