is there sales tax on silver coins if you are purchasing them from an online retailer that has a physical location in the same state you are shipping them to?

I do not know the answer, but I imagine if you call their "1-800-number", that they probably would.

The ONLY time I bought on-line was for Pt that shipped to my state (they were elsewhere), and I paid no sales tax.

And, of course, in many states showing up to the coin shop in person and buying incurs no sales tax in most states (the last two I lived in had no sales tax on Eagles).

Yes, if the state in question taxes silver sales. Every state has different rules. In Texas, local sales under $1,000 are taxed. Sales over $1,000 are not taxed. This means small purchases from Provident aren't as good a deal for me as for folks living outside of Texas.

If they sell to you in yout state they are required to collect it, however, outside the state, there is no obligatipon to do so.

Depends on your state laws. Some states have no sales tax in cases like these, but they do have an equivalent use tax. Every state is different. You need to check your state's laws.
