Does US customs charge duties for gold coins?
« on: March 24, 2017, 10:27:34 PM »
Just curious if US customs charge duties on gold coins purchased by individuals from overseas. I am referring to small, personal purchases, like below $1500 in value and 1 or 2 coins at once. Say if I buy a 1oz gold coin from France and ship it via postal mail and not UPS or Fedex. Does US customs charge duties if the shipping label declares it is 1oz gold but no explicit USD value? What if it says it is 1oz gold and has a declared or insured value of $1500?
