This is often repeated here because it is important. You are not going to find a new stove that is designed to burn the coal you have available. You might find something that stumbles along but will be very wasteful and labor intensive.
The best stove that is still widely available is a Florence Hot Blast or a Warm Morning.
Stoves were once specifically designed to burn specific fuels. Stoves like base burners are made for Anthracite, for example; and nothing else.
A Florence Hot Blast is specifically FOR bituminous and sub bituminous coal. They even had special grates for burning lignite as well. They provide superheated secondary air right over the fire to burn the gas. You also have a separate damper to exactly control how much air to give it.
Restored Florence stoves are expensive, but; they are very common as 10's of thousands of them were sold in bituminous burning regions of the country.
If it were me that's what I would get hands down. They are worth every cent.
