Yes, you can transport your gold and silver coins from one state to another.

You just want to be sure to carry proper ownership documents to avoid confiscation by any airport authorities.

They do have the authority to confiscate gold/ silver/ cash if they believe it is part of some criminal activity.

The way to avoid this situation is to carry the proper documentation showing your ownership of the coins.

For example, purchase paperwork, inheritance paperwork, etc.

There aren't any additional fees required for carrying your gold and silver coins with you.

I hope that helps!

Please let me know if you have any other questions about this. Also, please take a moment to rate me using the stars at the top of the page, as it's the only way experts are compensated for our time on the site. I do not receive a salary here at JustAnswer, and am only compensated for my time after receiving a rating of 3 stars or more (5 stars are always appreciated). The question won't close after rating, so you can still ask follow-up questions after. Thanks, ***** ***** it!

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
