Located directly across the bay from the city of San Francisco, Oakland is the busiest port in the Bay area. This East Bay city grew exponentially in population following the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, which prompted many San Franciscans to relocate here.
Today, the city of Oakland is home to a number of highly regarded coin shops. Given California’s gold rush history, gold bullion is unsurprisingly very popular here. Oakland coin dealers also offer a wide array of silver, along with rare coins.
