Salt Lake City is the capital and largest city in Utah. More than 80% of the state’s population lives in the Salt Lake City metropolitan area. The city was founded in 1847 by Brigham Young and his Mormon followers; the headquarters of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) is still located here. Salt Lake City is also known for skiing; it hosted the 2002 Winter Olympics.
Here, gold and silver bullion are officially considered to be legal tender, so they are not subject to the state’s capital gains tax, making precious metal investment particularly popular among Salt Lake City residents.
