There are several coin shops offering silver in Houston. They are located in the downtown area mainly, but can also be found in the suburbs.
Sales tax in Texas is 8.25%. Therefore, you should add this amount to any silver bought in Houston. This tax is waived over a purchase price of $1000. Not all local shops will have that large quantities of silver on sale, and so you may be tied into paying the sales tax. If you purchase online from another state you may not have to pay the sales tax.
Here are a few local Houston coin shops that could be worth a visit.

They’re open Tuesday through to Friday 9:30AM to 6PM, Saturday 9:30 AM to 3PM; and are available by appointment on Monday and after hours.
